Pack Your Gear In These Great Bags!

It's better to bring more gear than buy it at the resort where it can be more expensive. We RECOMMEND bringing your own equipment and not renting. Renting increases your chances of getting wrong or badly tuned equipment and can ruin your trip.
*If you will take your gear to a shop for tuning allow up to one week, especially just before the holidays, MLK weekend and Spring Break weeks.
**If you are going during Spring Break through season closing take a shell jacket for warmer sunny days.

Packing Tip: Put your skis and or snowboard in its travel bag and then put one complete outfit in your boot bag and another outfit in with your skis or snowboard. If the airlines loses a bag at least you will have one outfit and half your gear. The clothing around your gear will also give added protection to your equipment.
