Winter weather here can vary — a lot. Snowy January days can see lows around 10 degrees; a sunny March day might reach 60 degrees. Pack layers to handle it all.
- A hard-shell ski jacket with ventilation zippers keeps you toasty and dry in snowy conditions and can be unzipped to let in the welcome cool air on a sunny bluebird day.
- Comfy but durable boots are an après-ski essential. Nothing is better than pulling off your ski or snowboard boots and relieving your feet in a sumptuously soft pair that can withstand packed or slushy snow.
- Sunscreen may seem odd for a winter trip, but you are much closer to the sun in the mountains, so make sure your skin is protected.
