I'm gonna pack my suitcase and take it with me...

The packing list for the skiing holiday in Winterberg

The cold season has begun, the first snow has fallen, the anticipation is rising and the time has finally come: the skiing holiday is just around the corner. But before it starts, the suitcase must first be packed. The Hostel Erlebnisberg Kappe presents you a packing list, with which you have the most important things with you and do not forget anything.

Of course you need your ski or snowboard equipment for your skiing holiday at Winterberg . This includes:

  • Ski/Snowboard
  • Ski boots/snowboard boots
  • Ski poles
  • Ski helmet
  • Ski goggles
  • Gloves

If you don't have your own equipment or don't want to carry it with you on holiday, you can easily rent your ski sets from a ski rental shop at Winterberg , such as Ski rental Brinkmann. You should bring your own gloves and ski goggles. They are not for hire, but you can buy them in the ski rental for small money.

Additional clothing will ensure that you do not get cold:

  • Ski jacket or softshell jacket for warmer days.
  • Ski pants
  • Ski Underwear
  • Ski socks
  • Warm sweaters (e.g. fleece)
  • Cap or headband
  • Scarf or neckerchief

Another tip: When the sky is blue and the sun's rays hit the snow, sunglasses are even useful in winter and not just a fashion accessory. At the same time, of course, you also need clothing for off-piste skiing. This means that you should also put them in your suitcase:

  • Jacket for the winter
  • trousers/jeans
  • Shirts and sweaters
  • Underwear
  • Socks
  • Winter shoes

Additional gloves are also useful for the time you do not spend on the ski slopes at Winterberg . For hygiene and health, of course, the most important things should be packed:

  • toilet bag
  • Sun cream and lip protection
  • Handkerchiefs
  • First-aid kit
  • Drugs
  • blister plaster
  • Towels
  • Bag for dirty linen/waste

There are already many important things on the packing list for your skiing holiday in Winterberg. In addition, there are some electrical appliances that make full use of the last place in the suitcase:
