The skiing holidays are coming soon and it is time to start an important mission: "packing your bags for skiing". How to not forget something? How find the right balance between not enough socks and 3 times too many outfits that you won't wear? Do not panic, here are the essentials that you need!

 


The full equipment for the ski slopes

Don't forget your 3 layers to keep warm on the slopes,  
your riding gear, skis and snowboards,
boots and poles.

skiing underwear. Worn directly on your skin, it will keep you warm and comfortable. For maximum comfort, pack one per day.

skiing liner jacket to keep warm air around your body, like in a bubble.
skiing or snowboarding jacket, water repellent, warm and windproof, it is an essential on the slopes.

 

TIP

Travel in your mountain clothes: wear your liner jacket and jacket. It may look a bit strange at the train station or when you leave your house but it means more space in your bags and you will be ready for the cold when you get to the resort.

To transport and protect your equipment, we recommend that you use ski bags in which you can also slip your ski poles. Ski boot bags designed to also hold a helmet are also very useful!
