• How you should pack your next ski vacation

  • If you will be traveling for a ski vacation, it is often

    difficult to know what to pack. You may not even

    have a problem knowing what to pack, but instead

    have a problem figuring how to get everything that

    you need from your home to your destination. Skis

    do not easily fit into suitcases, and if you are flying,

    this presents a huge problem.

    Start by knowing what is available at your destination.

    Is there a rental shop? How much are the rental fees

    for skis, boots, and poles. If it is reasonable, and you

    don't mind skiing with rented equipment, this is a

    viable option - and it makes packing and traveling

    much easier.

    If you don't care for rented equipment, there is

    another option. Find out if there are any ski shops in

    the area. There usually are. Get prices on skis, poles,

    and boots, and then ask if they buy used equipment.

    If they don't, ask if there is anyone near by that does

    purchase used equipment. Call that place to get an

    estimate on how much you could get for barely

    used ski equipment. Figure the difference in the

    money you will spend on the ski equipment, and the

    money you will get for the used equipment when you How you should pack your next ski vacation

    are finished with it. If it isn't much more than what it

    would cost you to rent the equipment, go for it!

    Ski suits, ski jackets, and sweaters can be very

    bulky, and hard to pack. These items will take up a

    lot of room in your suitcase, and leave less room for

    other clothing and essentials. If you are trying to

    pack for a two week ski vacation, it will be impossible

    to fit everything you need into one suitcase.

    There is a way to solve this. Call the lodge or resort

    where you will be staying. Tell them that you need

    to ship a package, for yourself, to them, and that

    you need that package to be there when you arrive.

    Ask them if they will hold it for you at the desk. In

    most cases, they will. Next, get a box, put all of

    your ski suits, your ski jacket, and any other

    bulky items in the box, and ship it to yourself, in

    care of the lodge or resort. Shipping can be

    overnight, two day, or three day depending on

    how far it must travel. Depending on how much

    the box weighs, you will usually pay less than

    fifty dollars to ship a package in the continental

    United States....which is a lot less than you

    would pay an airline for extra baggage!
