Ski Tips

The season is upon us that many have been dreaming about all year. Skis are starting to emerge from closets and garages everywhere and thoughts are filled with visions of white mountains of snow.

Young and old alike will take to the slopes this year to continue the 5,000 year long tradition of skiing that brings millions of people exhilaration and a sense of freedom.

Travel Travel Carlson Wagonlit would like to offer beginners, along with experts, the following tips:

The Length of Ski Trips Should Depend on Schedule and Budget

A ski vacation can be enjoyed at any length of stay. Any vacation can be custom designed by a travel specialist to optimize a skier’s interests during their stay.

Packing can be Tough

Packing for a ski trip generally is more of a burden than packing for any other trip. Make sure to make a list of everything you will need. Don’t forget that on ski trips you will need inner and outerwear so you can fully enjoy your experience.

(For more tips on packing check prior entries in this blog.)

Get the Right Gear

Make sure before hitting the slopes that all gear is thoroughly inspected. Properly fitting boots are vital for skiers. Boots should feel snug, but comfortable.

Know Before you Go

Before making reservations at a ski resort evaluate your priorities. Depending on skill level, some resorts may be better than others. Some welcome children, while others are more geared toward adults. Make sure to find the best option.
Eat Right

To get the most out of your ski adventure, make sure to eat a hearty breakfast filled with carbohydrates and protein. These foods will boost energy needed for an active day.
