Old man winter has decided to show his face and brrr…. it’s really cold out there. While some people just want to hibernate or navigate to the warm weather climates of the Caribbean or Florida, there are others of us who are looking forward to change of pace. Maybe you’re like me, someone who is chasing the snow and all the adventure winter sports can bring.
I decided to put together a packing list in preparation for our Holiday trip to the Swiss Alps (Chamonix Mt. Blanc) and after our amazing trip to Calgary/Banff. I realized after Banff how unprepared we were for the cold weather. Little things like waterproof shoes/boots, wool socks and base layer clothing really matters in keeping warm. It’s all about the layers. Here are some of the KEY items along with some of the faves I feel are essential for winter weather vacation prep. TIP: I recommend buying in the off season when the prices are reduced and stores are looking to clear out the winter clothes to make room for the warm weather products.
