Snowboard trip - see what to pack!

Guide:

MyLuggage Tips

MORE FOR SNOW

Take two sets of clothes. One for snowboarding, and in the other, you will be able to go out without worrying why everything is still wet.

SNOWBOARDERS HAVE LAYERS

Illness on vacation is the last thing you need to be happy. It's best to wear three layers on a board. Basic, consisting of thermoactive underwear. Middle, like fleece and outerwear, where we put on pants and a snowboard jacket.

EQUIPMENT

Rent or take a new one? If you are just starting the adventure with a board, according to many experts, it is better to rent a board. Thanks to this, you will avoid additional costs, and in the future you will know exactly what board will suit you.

BE READY FOR SPA

Resorts often have swimming pools and saunas, and there is nothing better than a sauna after a day of driving :)
