With so many of the resorts opening this weekend or already opened it’s time to go through the closet and pull out your ski gear. Seems like we always save this for the night before or the first storm. No matter how prepared I am something gets left behind. So I’ve created a pre-ski day checklist.
Here are a few tips to go along with the below list. Buy a couple of tubes of chapstick and put one in your ski pants and one in your coat along with a thing of tissues. You never remember to take these until your sitting on the chairlift with your nose running. Always keep a thing of sunblock in your car (this is a good tip anytime of the year but you tend to forget it more in the winter).
I’m single so luckily I only have to keep track of my own gear. I took to keeping all my gear in the back of my car. It’s easier than hauling everything up the flights of stairs of my apartment.
