Warm Jackets & Coats
Packing a warm and high-quality coat or jacket for your winter trip is essential to staying comfortable and safe in the cold weather. A good coat will not only keep you warm, but it will also protect you from wind, snow, and rain. Additionally, having the right coat can make or break your winter trip.
If you're constantly cold and uncomfortable, you won't be able to enjoy the activities and sights as much as you could if you were properly dressed. Therefore, investing in a good coat is crucial to ensuring a fun and enjoyable winter vacation.

Winter vacation things you might forget to pack
Sunscreen- The sun can still be strong in winter and reflect off the white snow, so it's important to wear sunscreen to protect your skin.
Lip balm- The cold, dry weather in winter can cause chapped lips, so make sure to pack some lip balm to keep your lips moisturized.
Hand & foot warmers- In case you don't have heated socks, gloves, or insoles, consider bringing cheap disposable hand and foot warmers. They can be a lifesaver for keeping your extremities warm.
Sunglasses & goggles- The winter elements can be harsh and the white snow can be blinding with the sun shining, so we recommend wearing sunglasses or goggles with interchangeable lenses for various conditions.
Swimsuit & flip flops- Many mountain resorts offer hot tubs as an apres-ski activity, so don't forget to pack your swimsuit and a pair of flip-flops to wear to and from the tub.
