I've Been Skiing for 22 Years Now—15 Things I Always Pack for a Snow Trip

I've been skiing since I was about 5 or 6—long enough that I can't exactly pinpoint my earliest memory on the slopes, but I'd wager it was around that age. I'm forever grateful to have been taught such a daunting sport at that young age when falling down or wiping out was completely NBD because even though I only manage to get on the mountain a handful of times a year now, it's always like no has past. Suffice it to say, after twenty-plus years in the game, I know a thing or two about not just skiing, but what to wear and even more importantly, what to pack for a ski trip (or snowboarding—I don't discriminate).

Whether it's your very first time or you're a seasoned pro, your ski trip packing list will look the same and trust me, this isn't the kind of trip you can just wing it without planning ahead. There are so many niche items that that you'll need for the sport, from a neck warmer to the right kind of socks, that you might not have just laying around your house. So you definitely want to avoid showing up to your destination unprepared or else you'll be running to the nearest pro shop to buy all these random necessities. And why do that when you can peruse all the cooler fashion girl-approved versions of things like goggles, base layers, and ski pants that I've shopped out below?

Seeing as we're in the peak of ski season's December to April run, I figured now would be as good a time as any to share my go-to packing list. I've referred to this list so many times I should probably have it laminated or something (hit me up if you can help me with this).
