Obviously, going on a ski holiday requires a little more thought than when packing for a hot holiday. And even more so, when you have children thrown into the mix. There’s nothing worse than a cold child, stuck, half way up a mountain with 2 hours left until your transfer back to the chalet. So the best piece of advice I can give is to be prepared and over compensate. Having ski’d with my 11 year old step-son 3 times now, I have learnt the hard way, what I need to have with me. This family ski holiday kit list will make sure that you are well prepared for your trip.
Essentials for your day bag
Before we went on our last trip we were told a story about a child who was skiing with their dad and ended up going down a different run. Effectively the pair were split up and couldn’t get reunited for hours. We therefore took some extra precautions incase of a similar situation.
