Make sure you have everything you need for a brilliant skiing holiday

Setting off on a family skiing holiday is an exciting time. You are about to enjoy a wonderful trip, with breath-taking scenery, luxury accommodation in our cosy chalets, exceptional food, and fantastic skiing of course! However, one thing that can put a bit of a damper on it is getting to your destination and realising you’ve forgotten something crucial.

It can mean that the holiday gets off to a bad start and just when you think you can begin to relax, you have another thing to worry about!

Making sure you have everything you need is one thing, but when also having to pack for your children it is so easy to forget something. Because skiing needs specific equipment, it is important to stay organised and make sure you have everything you and your children require before setting off.

While our resorts have plenty of amenities to ensure that you can pick up any essentials you may have forgotten, it’s always preferable to have everything with you from day one. That’s why we have created this handy packing list to help you.
