Scarves (ThePreppyMAG Boutique)

We are four days out from the long weekend and I’m already checking the snow report every chance I get. I can’t believe this will already be the third time on the mountain this season and the excitement is just the same. I think I love it so much because it is a hobby? sport? that both Tom and I enjoy and are good at. So when we hit the slopes it really doubles as date that lasts a whole weekend!

After visiting Vermont for so many years and now having a little bit of experience skiing out west, I think I’ve finally mastered the packing list. The #1 watch out is that you really don’t need that much! For years, I would pack huge suitcases with everything from sweater dresses to different coats that match each outfit, but I’ve learned that all you want when you come off the mountain is comfort. So when you are packing that bag (assuming that you already know what you’ll need for your time on the mountain), all you need are your favorite sweaters and leggings and you are set.

If you are worried about being under dressed. DON’T! Seriously, ski resorts are very casual and simple. Most people will likely be hitting up the bars in their ski attire, so anything beyond an ugly pair of ski boots and puffy parka is basically runway material.

Here are a few of my picks, but be sure to follow on Instagram to see what I wear this weekend up in Stratton, Vermont.

    I have never been on a ski trip myself (me and cold do not get along, I am a southern girl) but these tips are great. I am always down for a cute sweater, scarf, and leggings!

    I like these suggestions, especially water resistant boots. No body wants to spend the whole trip complaining about wet boots and cold feet. Thank you for sharing :)
