What to Pack for a Ski Weekend


On the West Coast, El Nino is a skier’s dream come true with all the snow being dumped in the mountains this year and if you’re off to frolic, outdated après skiwear just won’t do. From chunky-knit stocking hats to fur-trimmed jackets and boots, there’s no shortage of fashionable choices to ensure you look your best after a long day on the slopes or simply slipping hot toddies in the lodge. Our thoughts on what to pack in addition to your hardcore ski gear.


1 | Fur – real or faux – is a must-do to up the glam factor. This Moncler coat is on our dream list. (We also found this option for a lot less and this one too.)

2 | Stocking hat, check. This bejeweled beanie goes with everything. (Only $19!)

3 | The right scarf adds an extra layer of warmth and style to your look. (Only $15!)

4 | Tech touch gloves are perfect for protecting and keeping your hands warm, while you snap selfies in the snow. The bow adds a feminine touch to these cuties by Kate Spade New York.

5 | We are also taking these easy-to-use hand warmers…aren’t the heart shapes cute?

6 | A cozy turtleneck by Vince in winter white flatters snow-kissed skin. (On Sale!)

7 | Cold weather footwear is a necessity and why not embrace color with these fun and practical Burberry boots.  We also found these cute boots for less.

8 | We know we should try to pack “lightly,” since we’re just going skiing for the weekend. LOL  This weekender bag by Longchamp is expandable which helps, plus it comes in a bunch of colors. We will try.
