Gear & packing

Gear & Packing

What to pack

The dress code is informal, so there’s no need to pack an extensive wardrobe.

Packing tips


We recommend that you dress in layers for skiing and riding. Layering provides better protection against the cold than wearing one large, heavier layer.

Boots as carry-on

Try to bring your boots as a carry-on item on the airplane. If your main luggage is lost or delayed, you’ll still be able to ski or ride!


Our Hotels use standard EU 220-volt electrical outlet. Please pack a voltage converter if you require one.
