Essential Must-Haves On A Ski-Holiday to Val Thorens
Skiing holidays can be a fantastic experience for anyone, from couples to families, but extra costs can filter through into the final price, stemming from travel insurance, charges for flying with ski equipment and many others. In some cases, it is important to just remember the essentials, as some people in their haste, often tend to overdress but miss out on the basics. For those seeking a few helpful pointers, especially first-timers who have yet to experience Europe's highest ski resort of Val Thorens in the lovely Tarentaise Valley in the French Alps, no skiing trip here is ever complete without these four things:
This is a great buy and a definite essential as it can be used at any point in the year when the temperature tends to drop. Naturally, a skiing holiday is going to be combined with cold weather and so it's important to wear something warm, insulated and affordable. This is an essential and a bit more money can be invested in it. Different brands will have different prices but they are vital pieces of garment as they'll carry all the smaller essentials (lift passes, money) and will let you breathe on the slopes.
In the scramble to buy thermals, jackets and other garments, the socks can be missed out. Some decide that they'll just wear their best pair of socks from home, or add extra insulation by wearing two or three pairs. When you're skiing, your feet are the closest body part to the cold snow and they're going to get cold. With this in mind, it's imperative that you buy socks that will keep the feet warm and protect them from getting too uncomfortable, cooped up in the tight ski boots that you'll also be wearing.
Hands start to feel the cold very quickly and there's not much use doing anything if your hands are going to suffer. Gloves are just as essential as the jacket and need to be invested in wisely. Insulation and functionality is imperative in this situation and the best usually include a line of fleece to contain the warmth. They will naturally have to be waterproof as well as you may end up lying on the floor quite a bit during the holiday and gloves will obviously come in handy here.
Late holidays are gaining popularity with holidaygoers and in the rush to book that last-minute holiday to the family's favourite ski-resort, some of the absolute essentials can be overlooked. Insurance is vital because there is (according to most insurance companies anyway) a 53% chance of injury during a skiing or snowboarding holiday and it's best to shop around for great deals and policies that will keep you insured. Whilst many go into the mindset that nothing bad will happen, accidents can occur in such conditions and it's always better to be safe than sorry.
