It’s the holidays, and for those of us lucky enough to escape work and the in-laws we are going to want to go skiing. I love ski trips, especially ones that involve the freedom of driving from ski area to ski area. But when going on an extended ski vacation, it’s crucial that you bring all the right gear – for both comfort, and efficiency. That’s why I decided to provide a list of everything gear-related that I bring when going on a ski trip so you don’t leave anything out the next time that you decide to hit the road to hit the slopes.

This is everything I brought with me on my latest ski-adventure to the mountains of New Mexico:

  • Helmet
  • Skis – ON3P Jeffrey 108s
  • Adjustable poles
  • Climbing skins
  • Backcountry backpack
  • Avalanche Transceiver + spare batteries
  • Avalanche shovel
  • Avalanche probe
  • First aid kit
  • Headlamp
  • Binoculars
  • Paracord
  • Voile strap
  • Dry sack
  • Sun screen/moisturizer
  • Chapstick
  • 2 pairs of goggles – one for bluebird days, the other for storm days
  • Ski boots – Lange XT Free 120
  • Boot dryers
  • Toe warmers
  • Travel backpack
  • Puffy/mid-layer
  • Insulated ski jacket – Canada Goose
  • Warm layers/long underwear
  • Ski pants
  • Ski socks – several pairs
  • Mittens
  • Beanie
  • 2 face-masks
  • Rylo camera

Hope this helps you on your next ski adventure! Happy holidays!
