Try something different this spring break. Instead of doing the usual activities that go with the season— like going to the beach or going hiking or camping — why don’t you try hitting the slopes?
Going on a ski trip for spring break is a fun thing to do, especially if you didn’t get enough skiing time over the winter.
Before you take off to the mountains, you have to make the necessary preparations for your trip. Otherwise, it would be a disastrous spring break ski trip.
Ski Trip Essentials
Before anything else, make sure that you have all of your essentials packed before you leave. After all, you wouldn’t want to be caught dead going on a ski trip without your gear, right?
Protect yourself from the elements by packing the right clothes for your trip. You need to make sure you’re covered up well enough. Bring waterproof pants, a windproof-and-waterproof ski jacket, long underwear (ideally, those with non-cotton base layers), and additional insulation to keep you extra warm.
On top of your Spyder boys’ ski pants and ski jacket, make sure to pack a pair of good gloves, a neck gaiter, a pair of goggles, a helmet for protection, a few pairs of ski socks, a winter hat, and some sunscreen and lip balm.
Once you’re done preparing your clothes and accessories, it’s time to prepare your skiing gear. So pack load your skis, poles, boots, bindings, and snowboards in the car before you forget them.
If you don’t have any of these, you can either borrow from a friend or you can rent some of the equipment you need at the resort. Just be sure to check if they have skis for rent where you’re going.
These are not really must-haves but it would be good to have them on hand just in case. A pair of sunglasses, a first-aid kit, hand and toe warmers, and a decent camera.
