Whichever activity you choose, you want to be sure to have the essentials for skiing and snowboarding to ensure you have an excellent day out on the hill! Grab your ski boots, or snowboard boots and find the right ski pants and waterproof ski jacket that will offer good protection from the wind and snow. An insulated jacket will keep you warm while shielding you from the elements. Check that your skis and/or snowboard are in good condition and ready for run after run once you hit the ski resort. Bring your ski bag and ski boot bag to store your skis and boots as you travel. You'll also want to pack comfortable snow boots to wear after your day on the slopes.
