A guide to packing for a Skiing holiday | January 2022

I have absolutely loved skiing for a long time since I went on a few ski holidays when I was at school. For Christmas 2019 we decided to go on a skiing trip for the festive period and went to Sestriere for our Christmas. We had an amazing time and both loved being back in the mountains with the snow. What with everything going on since then we haven't been able to go skiing and were actually meant to have been in the mountains for Christmas just gone. Unfortunately due to all the travel restrictions our holiday got cancelled but we have managed to re-book it for Christmas 2022 and are keeping our fingers crossed that we will be able to get back to the slopes later this year. 

I know that there are still a number of skiing holidays actually being able to take place for the remainder of this 21/22 season, so thought that I would put together a packing list of all the items that we would take with us on our trips to help anyone that is unsure of what to take or is new to skiing. 



Ski clothing:

  • Ski jacket and salopettes or all in one suit
  • Thermal tops and bottoms/base layers (can get these from a range of places e.g. Decathalon, Marks & Spencers, Sno Queen, Sweaty Betty, Topshop Snow etc.)

  • Ski socks
  • Ski gloves
  • Neck warmers/snood
  • Ski helmet
  • Ski hats (like to have these for when not wearing ski helmet)
  • Goggles
  • Ski sunglasses
  • Ski boots (we have our own ski boots but these can usually be hired within the resorts)
  • Skis (if you have them or they can be hired within the resorts)
