SO THAT YOU CAN BUY THINGS.
A warm hat
Even if you’ve got a helmet with you for the riding, remember to bring a hat with you, because a) it’ll keep you warm at night when you’re out and about, and when it’s especially cold, and b) it’ll help you fit in. Think about it. When have you ever seen a skier or snowboarder not wearing a beanie or cap? We’ve got both on right now. It’s the new look.
It can be hard to comprehend packing a bag inside a larger bag for some folk, but it is well worth it! It’s great to have a rucksack with you when you’re skiing. It means you can take water, food – therefore saving a bunch of money – take off layers if it’s too warm, and on top of that it protects your back in a fall. Be aware though – all your mates will want to put stuff in your rucksack. All of them. All of the time.
This suggestion comes in a similar vein to our first suggestion – the sun cream. There is a hell of a lot of sun up in those mountains, and even though you’ll probably have goggles on most of the time, it’s nice to have the option of something lighter or of being able to switch to sunglasses at lunch.
Have we forgot about something that you often forget to bring? If so let us know in the comments!
