Heading off on a winter holiday soon?
Make sure you’ve first of all, packed all the important stuff.
Then read on to check you’re packing it all smartly.
1. USE A CHECKLIST
Take the stress out of your yearly ski holiday.
Create a fail-safe way to ensure that you never forget the ski essentials.
It’s always interesting to ask fellow ski friends what their essentials are.
But if you’re new or don’t already have one?
2. DON’T OVERPACK
Pack less day to day clothing than usual.
You’re going to be in ski clothing every day all day until the evening.
Bring a couple pairs of trousers, a couple of t-shirts and jumpers and of course ski gear.
3. WEAR HEAVY STUFF TO THE AIRPORT
With ski clothing and gear, it’s too easy to reach the airlines’ maximum weight for baggage.
Cut this down by wearing the big and heavy bits on the journey.
Wear your outdoor boots and ski jacket to save space in your suitcase.
You really only need one pair of shoes for when you are not on the slopes.
Don’t be tempted to overpack clothes and shoes you won’t be wearing for much time at all.
4. ROLL IT
Roll your clothes instead of folding.
This technique really works.
If you’re packing ski boots, as well, stick your rolls or even bottles of shampoo down into them to save those extra inches.
5. OPTIMISE YOUR HAND BAGGAGE
Budget airlines won’t let you check in your ski boots as a separate bag to your skis/main suitcase without an extra charge.
A way around an extra charge is to take your ski boots in your carry-on bag.
This will save vital KG’s in the suitcase.
