Morning from Park City!! Actually, we are staying in Deer Valley which is 15 min from Park City because the snow was supposed to be a little better. I haven’t been skiing in about 4 years so let’s hope I can make it down the mountain… I grew up skiing and was really good, but then in college I hadn’t been in forever so my first time back on the mountain I was terrified. Probably because I was skiing in a blizzard! So fun.
After that trip, I decided to give snowboarding a shot. It just seemed easier to me… Well, I kinda got the hang of it but couldn’t ever get my toe side down so I just zig zagged across the mountain for 4 years! Yes, 4 years. Finally, we were on a family ski trip one Christmas and my dad had enough of me on the snowboard. He made me take a lesson where I had a horrible fall and I was done. Time to get back on skis!
I absolutely love skiing so I really want to get back into it! I think I’m just going to need a lot of practice and retrain myself from the snowboarding days. OR… I’ll just stick to what I do best: APRÈS SKI!!
I’ll be sharing all my outfits from the weekend, and a few collages below of what I’d take on a ski trip.
WHAT TO PACK FOR A SKI TRIP + APRÈS SKI ESSENTIALS
black and white sherpa jacket // black scarf // black sunglasses // pom beanie // free people sweater // black snow boots // $14 amazon sunnies // free people hat // spanx faux leather leggings // black gloves // ski sweater // tall snow boots
I always try to pack sweaters that are not only cute but super warm. This Free People sweater was an absolute hit and I just love the winter print and vibe it gives – so perfect for après ski!
When we’re not on the slopes, leggings are such an easy thing to pack and wear around the ski town and during après ski. I love the Spanx faux leather leggings and wear them all the time! They’re also so easy to wear with winter boots which brings me to my next essential!
After you’re done on the slopes, you’ll definitely want to have a pair of waterproof winter boots that will keep you warm since walking around ski boots is neither graceful nor fun. I love this pair from Sorel and wear these during après often!
Having a beanie for après ski is absolutely essential, especially during winter skiing when it’s absolutely freezing outside. I love this pom beanie from Topshop! It comes in several colors and is under $30 – such a win!
Another warmth essential is a neck scarf to throw on after the slopes. I love cashmere ones since they tend be lighter but still so warm. This black one is so cute and warm and goes with everything!
Faux fur seems to be the biggest trend of the winter! I love wearing it for après ski, especially since it’s not ideal for the actual slopes, but it’s just so cute. This faux fur jacket is a favorite of mine and it’s currently on major sale!
tie dye long sleeve top // commando faux leather leggings // ski beanie // black puffer jacket // grey and white animal print sweater // black slip hair ties // white puffer jacket // aviator sunglasses // cashmere lined gloves // black star sweater // black ugg socks // tie dye leggings
PUFFER COAT/SKI JACKET
Picking out a ski jacket was my favorite part of putting together my ski look cause you can have so much fun with it! There are so many out there that are not only functional and warm but super cute! I love this black and white option. It’s an investment, but you’ll have it for years and will be so happy you do.
Gloves and mittens that are waterproof are your best bet on the slopes! I love this pair of mittens that’s super affordable and available on Amazon!
These will keep your eyes protected from the sun and snow and also can help add another layer of warmth when the cold wind hits your face. I love this white pair from Smith!
Another absolute necessity to have is a good pair (or two or three) of wool socks. I pretty much only wear this pair from Smartwool. They’re warm and thin – which you want so they can fit comfortably in your ski boots!
base layer leggings // leopard baselayer top // ski goggles // turtle fur neck warmer // ski mittens // smartwool ski socks // face mask // black and white ski jacket // black ski pants // snow boots // ski helmet // patagonia mid layer
black tall sorel boots // pewter cougar boots // cream sorel boots // white sorel quilted boots // black wedge boots // tan lace up boots // black faux fur boots // cream frye boots // winter white sorel boots
