What Clothes Should I Pack & Wear for a Trip to Vail?

Vail is coveted as one of the finest resort destination in the world with world renowned skiing, diverse shops and restaurants, luxurious accommodations, friendly neighborhoods and breath-taking mountain views.

Vail is the second largest single mountain ski resort in the United States with more than 5,200 acres of developed ski and snowboard terrain, seven legendary Back Bowls spanning seven miles, and the most groomed terrain on the planet.  Located 97 miles west from the Denver Airport Vail averages more than 300+ days of sunshine and 370+ inches of snow each year, making pristine ski conditions.  

Vail is famous for its four back bowls, which are great on fresh powder days as everyone gets a fresh line.  Vail has vast terrain for every level skier to enjoy and four terrain parks with super pipes, jumps and rails.

The Vail village was built with an Austrian style which gives it a unique European look for a Colorado resort.  The charming Vail Village with heated cobblestone streets was designed to be navigated by foot so visitors can have easy access to the slopes, shops, a variety of restaurants from fine dining to casual coffee shops, and apres ski.

The lifestyle and culture at Vail is so much more than skiing and boarding (although that’s a big part). Vail provides high-class entertainment and events year-round, from culinary events to film festivals and athletic competitions. World-renowned musicians and dancers travel far and wide to perform at Vail.

You are going to want to be warm and dress casual chic on your trip to Vail. Follow our style guide to be prepared for for the cold weather when packing for your trip.

Warm Jackets & Coats

The elements are what you should pay attention to when packing for your winter trip, as the temperatures can range from 14 to 35 degrees in the winter months.  Having a warm, cozy and functional coat is the most important thing you will need to pack on the mountain.

When it comes to winter fashion, investing in a high-quality jacket or coat is key. With the right outerwear, the rest of your outfit becomes interchangeable since you can always layer up underneath. But not all coats are created equal - you'll want to find one that not only keeps you warm, but also makes you feel comfortable, stylish, and confident.

At Furrocious Furr, we understand the importance of a well-fitting coat. That's why we've perfected our sizing for both men and women, so you can be sure that the coat you order will feel like a warm hug. We even offer customization options if your measurements don't align perfectly with our size chart. With a Furrocious Furr coat, you can stay cozy and fashionable all winter long.

ski base layers

Layered Tops & Bottoms

When it comes to winter fashion, layering is key. It's important to bring a variety of tops and bottoms of different thicknesses that you can mix and match, so you're prepared for any changes in weather. You'll want to be able to delayer easily when going from the outside to inside, so make sure you pack a variety of long sleeve tops, sweaters, cardigans, fleeces, and hoodies.

For snowy, wet days on the slopes, waterproof pants are essential to keep you warm and dry. And just because you're layering for warmth doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style. Base layer tops and bottoms can be fashionable as well as functional.

We love sexy fashion savvy thermal layers for women from Free People Movement, Sweat Betty, and Goldbergh.

For men we love Montec's state-of-the-art winter gear combining style and function.

You can't go wrong with Smartwool or Patagonia, or Helly Hansen for men's & women's quality base layers.

For men's & women's fun, retro style base layers, and ski wear shop OOSC. 

If you want to wear that sparkly dress or skirt get a pair of fleece lined stockings. Our favorite fleece tights Blostirno Fleece Lined Tights

Layers are great way to adjust to how warm or cold you are.  Fleece lined leggings and ski thermals can go under any outfit.  One of our favorites fleece leggings is Uniqlo HEATTECH Ultra Warm Leggings

Winter vacation things you might forget to pack

  • Sunscreen.  Don't forget to wear sunscreen, even during the winter months. The sun's rays can still be strong and reflect off the white snow, so it's important to protect your skin.
  • Lip balm.  Keep your lips moisturized with a lip balm, as cold and dry weather can cause chapped lips.
  • Hand & foot warmers.  If you don't have heated socks, gloves, or insoles, consider picking up some inexpensive disposable hand and foot warmers to keep your extremities toasty warm.
  • Sunglasses & googles.  Protect your eyes from the harsh elements by wearing sunglasses or goggles. We recommend goggles with interchangeable lenses for varying conditions, as the bright sun reflecting off the white snow can be blinding.
  • Swimsuit & flip flops.  Don't forget to pack a swimsuit and flip-flops, as hot tubs are a popular après-ski activity at most mountain resorts. You'll want to be ready to slip into the warm water and relax after a long day on the slopes.
