Ski holiday packing list

What should not be missing on a ski vacation?

"I'll pack my suitcase and take the following items with me..." says a popular children's game. What's already difficult enough in the game is even more challenging in real life: packing your suitcase without forgetting anything. That's why we've put together an extensive packing list for your ski holiday.

Well prepared for ski holidays

Packing your suitcase for a winter holiday can be a real challenge. In addition to casual clothing and everyday items, ski or snowboard equipment is of course at the top of the list. However, every packing list is individual. What you absolutely need on a ski vacation differs from person to person. For example, the following facts need to be clarified in advance: Do I take equipment from home with me or do I rent it on site? Which luggage size is allowed when arriving by car, train or plane? Do I need important documents on site? When traveling with children: what utensils do the little ones need on their ski holiday?

Every packing list for a ski holiday looks a little different. As inspiration and support, we have summarized the most important items for your winter holiday in our ski holiday checklist. For a relaxed start into your holiday in Gurgl.
