Here’s a ski trip packing list that covers everything you need to ski, drive in winter weather, and what you need for the hotel during a ski trip.

When it comes to packing for a ski trip for a family you have to have a game plan. It is no small feat to take the entire family skiing, especially if you own all your own gear. That’s why I over the years I have built up such an extensive ski trip packing list. I’ve broken this list into sections because you will need certain items just to ski, others if you are staying in a hotel, and even more if you are driving to the mountain.
