Ultimate Ski Trip Packing List – What to Pack for a Cozy Skiing Trip

Our family loves to go skiing and we know what you need to bring along on the trip. From knit caps to warm socks, my ski trip packing list will keep you cozy on the slopes!

First things first, let’s talk about what clothing to pack to wear while skiing.

Ski Jackets & Pants

You need to equip yourself with a great waterproof ski jacket. Make sure to find one that has a few easily accessible pockets. This is useful in case you want to grab your phone for a photo or enjoy a granola bar on the chair lift.

You also want one that has a good range of motion in the arms — move your arms around to make sure the shoulders and back aren’t too tight. And you definitely need a pair of ski pants. These are insulated to keep you warm but also waterproof to protect you from getting wet from the snow.

Once you have a great jacket and pants, you don’t want a lot of bulk underneath so a good quality base layer works great.

Base Layer

They keep us warm, go on easily, and are super comfortable for a long day on the slopes! Of course, if you envision taking off your ski pants to hang out in the lodge, you might want to wear a thicker pair of leggings than some base layers.

You’ll want a good pair of ski socks. They’ll help keep your feet warm and dry, and they are pretty much the only way to survive a day in ski boots.
