Our friend Shelby gets her full send on in Tahoe and after hundreds of ski trips to the mountain, has put together a list of her 5 Ski Day Must Haves:

  1. Sunscreen and chapstick. I know we don’t typically think of slathering on sunscreen unless it’s summer and we are planning on going to the beach, but when the sun reflects on the snow and bounces to your face, you can get very burnt! Always ALWAYS bring some sunscreen to protect the skin that will be exposed. I always bring a couple of chapsticks with SPF (because I often lose them lol!) and they are a lifesaver! With harsh conditions, it’s easy to get chapped lips fast, so keep them moisturized at all times!
  2. Face Masks. Do your part to keep ski towns and resorts safe! I always bring a few face masks just in case a friend or two forgets. Also, wearing a mask helps protect your face from extreme conditions; it’s a win-win!
  3. Extra socks. I never wear my ski socks until I get to the mountain because you can risk getting them wet from snow or sweat beforehand, which makes for a sad day of skiing. Do your feet the favor and pack an extra pair of socks (or two!).
  4. Head on over to her blog for essentials 4 and 5.

Happy skiing squad!
