You now know what to pack but how do you squeeze it all into your luggage? Even if you are travelling by car, you can avoid the hassle of wrestling with multiple bags by engaging in judicious packing.
The easiest way to prevent your clothing from cluttering your bag is to wear it. Think about travelling dressed in your jeans, a mid-layer, your ski jacket and your snow boots. Fill your ski boots with socks and undies before placing them in your bag. Ditto your helmet. Put all of your other clothing into vacuum bags to reduce their volume by half or more before packing them. You will be astonished how much you can squeeze into a small space!
Ski bags are under-used resources! You have to pay a small fortune to get your ski bag on the plane, so get your money’s worth by packing it out with t shirts, tops and base layers.
Put your camera, sunglasses and any other valuables in your hand luggage or your jacket pockets to keep them safe and to save space in your bags. If you need a handbag and your airline won’t allow you to take that too, invest in a bum bag and use that instead. It could also come in handy on the piste.
