Its a holiday I have thought about for many years but until now one I have shied away from. Possibly because of the children’s ages but also I’m a huge lover of the heat. This year we made the decision to go on our first ski holiday as a family, I also mentioned in my New Years Resolutions that we were planning to try and get away at Easter and now its booked ha. A very scary thought for newbies but also a very exciting one. So today I’m sharing a Skiing Checklist For Beginners. I have consulted many friends who are avid skiers and snowboarders for their hints and tips, so I’m using these to collate my checklist. I’m going to document our trip as well so it will be interesting to see after if we needed everything or did we, not bring enough.
Skiing Checklist For Beginners
As I mentioned above I have asked many friends what we need to take with us. We are planning on hiring our skis, boots, poles and helmets which means we have less to buy before going. We are also driving to France so we can bring more than someone who is flying. So what tips did I get from friends?
Socks- Thin pairs for layering or ski socks
A lovely friend recommended using our Mini Boden PJs for base layers for the boys, which for me is a wonderful idea as we have an abundance of these. Another lady recommended Mountain Warehouse for packages. They do mens, ladies and children packages including ski jackets, salopettes, socks, gloves and a hat at very competeive prices. Ebay has also been recommended lots. As the boys are small these items will only last 1 season so buying cheper is a better option, especially if they don’t like it. Forte evening times I have been told to bring a few onesies for us all. Something warm to pop on when we get off the slopes. So that’s it my Skiing Checklist For Beginners if you have been before and have anything to add I would love to know 🙂
