Life is easier with a list, right? There is comfort in knowing you’ve thought it through and ticked it off as you pack for your holiday in a catered ski chalet. It reduces the risk of turning up and finding out you left the helmets on the spare bed!!
Take a deep breath, pull the suitcase out the loft and print off your TCC (The Chalet Company – who have been offering catered ski chalets in Meribel for 10 years) checklist of what you need to pack. Your brain power work here is done!! It really is that easy thanks to this handy printable – The Chalet Company Printable Packing List
To create this list, we’ve dug deep into the backs of our minds from last season (it was tough) and thought about how we prepare for the annual family ski trip.
Our list is broken down into three sections, which is much how we think of our suitcase – a third for ski gear, a third for apres ski/chalet lounging and a third for all the extras.
We find it is usually the comfy casuals we are short of, don’t underestimate the pull to sit down by the fire in your trackies after a hard day on the slopes and enjoy a home baked cake with a cup of tea.
You will also see we note back protector on the ski equipment list. This is obviously a personal choice but after hearing a few horror stories, we’ve decided it is on our kit list from now on, and much like a helmet we suspect you will see them forming part of the standard gear in years to come. To date, we’ve only used them on the kids, but are on the lookout for quality adults’ ones at a decent price point too!
