Ski Holiday Checklist

Going skiing can only mean one thing, lots to think about and lots to pack. Unlike summer holidays where you can get away with a bikini and a pair of shorts, you need to be well organised and take things for every eventuality. Here we have compiled a list so you can print it off and tick things off as you pack them.

Travel Essentials

  • Tickets, passport and money
  • Transfer/train tickets
  • Accommodation details
  • Ski pack details
  • Insurance details
  • Driving licence
  • Ski Club membership if you have one


  • Ski Boots/Board Boots
  • Skis/Board (correctly packaged in a ski bag)
  • Poles (can go into ski bag)
  • Rucksack/bum bag
  • Helmet
  • Transceiver, probe and shovel (for skiing off piste)
  • Drinks bottle
  • Multi-tool (to fix bindings etc)


  • Hat
  • Sunglasses/goggles
  • Minimum 2 thermal tops
  • Minimum 2 fleeces/sweatshirts
  • Waterproof Jacket/Coat
  • Water proof trousers (salopettes)
  • Minimum 2 pair ski gloves
  • Minimum 5 pair thick ski socks

Other Clothing

This depends on the individual and what your plans are for après ski activities, however, we do recommend water proof boots for walking around the resort and its always nice and warm inside the bars etc, so an overcoat or fleece should suffice for walking between the accommodation and said places.

Other Useful Items to Consider

  • Sunscreen/lip balm
  • After sun
  • Swimming costumes/shorts
  • Mobile phone/charger
  • Walkie Talkies
  • Camera
  • Pain Killers/first aid kit
  • Ankle/wrist supports

We are sure there are many other items you will think of but we hope this handy list will help take the stress out of packing for your ski holiday.
