Hacks & Tips 3 MINS READ

It’s wintertime and the slopes are fresh with snow and ready for you to bust out your moves on them. However, planning a trip is sometimes the dreaded part. Let’s make it easy for you. Follow these tips and you’ll be on your way to an ultimate ski trip in 2018.

Choose a Ski Trip Destination

The first place to start is choosing where you want to go. There are beautiful ski areas around the world. Do your research and find one that stands out to you. Some of the most popular places you can check out are Colorado, Aspen, Austria, Innsbruck, and Vail. When choosing a destination, keep in mind the skill level of the slopes – Find the perfect one for you.

Find The Best Deal

Who doesn’t like a good deal? Before you book the first option you find, do a bit more digging and see if you can find a better deal. The more money you leave in your wallet, the more you can either save or splurge on while you’re on your trip. Online travel sites like ours, CuddlyNest, will lead you to some of the best deals for your next ski trip.

Have a Plan

To get the most out of your ski trip, you’ll want to make sure your experience matches up to the intensity of the slopes. You’re not going to want anything too easy or too hard. If you’re a beginner skier, you may want to take some lessons. You don’t want to be that person sitting back watching everyone else have fun.

What to Pack for a Ski Trip

Now that you have chosen your destination and the perfect deal, you’ll want to start thinking of items you need to bring.
