For a day of skiing or riding, what items do you take up with the mountain with you?

Whistler Mountain Skiing

It’s no secret that carrying a backpack filled with lunch, snacks and essential supplies, will come in handy and saves on the wallet for a day of skiing. For those days when you do not carry a backpack, we’ve come up with a list of our suggested pocket items to bring up the mountain with you.

Three essential items are:

  • Granola bars, for a quick bite and boost of energy on the chair lift
  • Packs of hot chocolate mix or a tea bags for morning or afternoon breaks
  • Packs of hand warmers, because no one likes cold hands

These three items are perfect for each family member to carry in their pocket, and you can purchase a box of them before your trip.

Other pocket items that may come in handy on certain days are:

  • Lip balm 
  • Sunscreen 
  • Tissues 
  • Google wipe
  • Ski/Snowboard lock 
  • Toque 
  • Whistle

If you’re planning on going out of bounds and into the backcountry, the bare minimum you should carry with you is:

  • Avalanche transceiver (beacon)
  • Shovel
  • Probe

Always remember to tell somewhere where you are going, when to expect you back and to travel with a friend.
