Winter vacation things you might forget to pack
Sunscreen- Just because it''s winter doesn't mean that the sun is strong out there and reflecting off the white snow.
Lip balm- Cold dry weather can cause dry chapped lips.
Hand & foot warmers- If you don't have heated socks, gloves or insoles pick up these cheap disposable warmers. They are a life saver for your cold feet and hands.
Sunglasses & goggles- It's bright out there and the elements can be harsh. We recommend goggles with interchangeable lenses for various conditions. The white snow can be blinding with the sun shining so a pair of sunglasses is key.
Swimsuit & flip flops- Hot tubes are a popular apres ski activity at every mountain resort so you will want to pack your swimsuit and a pair of flip-flops to wear to and from the tube.
