This list is what I personally recommend to
take on a skiing holiday.
It is based on over 20 years experience with guests enjoying their winter snow vacation.
Wool hat - fleece lined.
Goggles - double lens (for snowy / windy days). Ski jacket.
Sweater or fleece (best to dress in layers).
Turtle necks - 1 a day.
Warm ski gloves or mittens.
(Mittens are much warmer.)
Long underwear - 2 to 3 pairs.
Ski socks (thin wool-blend) - 3 pairs.
Sunblock SPF 15+.
Chap stick/ lip balm SPF 15.
Waterproof street boots/ shoes.
Bathing suits - limited sizes sold locally.
(For the spa)
Apreski /Evenings. Casual clothes, jeans are accepted everywhere. Evenings can be much colder, so bring a warm coat.
Methven which services Mt Hutt has a range of restaurants/ bars/ cafes/ take-aways to cater for all needs. Park City/ Deer Valley boasts over 100 restaurants etc. with a special service supplying excellent take away food to your house or condo. Deer Valley consistently wins the awards for Best On Mountain Food, Best Grooming and Best Guest Service in North America. Hot tubs or pools are standard at most lodgings. Bring a bathing suit.
Ski equipment, clothes and accessories can be purchased or hired locally. If something doesn't suit (e.g. uncomfortable boots; inappropriate skis / clothing), it is usually much easier to deal with a local ski shop. In this way the situation may be resolved and skiing resumed! At Deer Valley my personal recommendation is the Deer Valley Rental.
