Route 1: skiing
Those clear skies, powdery snow, and need we even mention the après ski, are perfect for beating those winter blues. Don’t forget the essentials when packing: close-fitting base layers, warm mid-layers, a great ski jacket and salopettes, skiing gloves, socks, goggles, hat and sunglasses. If you’re seasoned, consider investing in your own boots, helmet, skis and poles.
For when piste turns to pint, you’ll need snow boots and great knitwear. Plus, slippers and swimming trunks are a must for those chalet antics. If you never want to leave the slopes, we won’t blame you.
