HOT TOPIC: What to wear when you’re not skiing!

Last updated: Sep 6th, 2021

We all like to travel feeling like we’re well prepared for the journey ahead. With packing space being limited on a school ski trip, we thought we’d open up a discussion around what to wear when you’re not on the slopes?! After all it’s a very important topic!!!!

Many factors will affect your choices. How cold the resort is, what après activities your teacher has planned for you, what the resort has to offer, and of course, the ‘look’ you want to pull off!

Casual/smart, practical adventurer, style maestro …whichever you opt for, you’ve got to plan ahead!

In resort

Let’s face it, most of our resorts aren’t going to be warm as such, so the only place you’ll possibly need shorts for is lounging around in the hotel! Warm jumpers, hats, scarves, thick socks and thermals are going to be your best friend while away and perfect for roaming about resort.

For après…

Well this depends on what you’ve got planned. It’s likely that if you’re going night skiing you won’t even make it back to your room. It’ll be skiing, dash for a quick bite and then out again! On the other hand, your school may have planned a night of bowling, so it’s time to bring out the casual smart gear. It’s always a Nice change for a few hours from your boots and skis to bowling shoes!

School disco

For groups who are lucky enough to have a disco planned into their ski trip itinerary this is the night to get your best outfit out. Play it cool, go all out style, the disco will keep you warm while you and your mates dance the night away!

Off out for dinner?

Many itineraries include a night out at a local restaurant. In ski resorts it’s usually a very laid back affair, so this would provide the perfect opportunity to bring out the casual smart gear you might have worn for bowling – we feel a capsule wardrobe coming on! Save on space packing!

And there you have it, no panic, no fuss, just simple ideas of what you might wear when you’re not skiing on a school ski trip!
