Items you can't live without on the moutain - Page 2

Carmex/Chapstick/Blistex - something for the lips. I tend to bite my tongue or lick my lips when I ski. Good thing I don't jump off cliffs much - I'd be talking pretty funny!

Items you can't live without on the mountain: in all seriousness - at least one of my four kids. Got a lot of demands in my life right now, but if I'm accompanied by at least one of them I'm golden for a day of goofing off on the slopes.

I only ski with a pack in the BC. Good thing, as I really stuff my pockets:
Lip balm
Extra contacts and eye drops
Season pass (in chip on my Swatch)
Cash (about 20 euros)
Something to wipe shades/goggles with
Neck gator, unless it's really warm
Beanie for under helmet
Duck tape (on pole)
1 ski strap
Glove liners, sometimes two pairs if it's warm or wet out
Extra shirt around waist/tucked into pants. Useful if cold or sweaty, or to sit on
Cellphone with camera (I live in Italy)
Water bottle or lumbar Camelbak
Energy bars (which I only buy in the States)
Maybe an orange
And... extra socks. Don't laugh. If your feet are cold, it's because they're wet. A change of socks does wonders.

stuffed pockets indeed!

one interesting theme is that most people don't carry much cash...is this because we are afraid we'll lose it, or afraid we'll spend it?

HANDKERCHIEFS, at least 3, when it's cold and I'm skiiing it's a necessity
credit cards and cash, health insurance card, season pass
alternate pair of gloves or mittens for weather changes
ski lock
cell phone
ski run counter/altimeter (I'm a vert head)
anti fog cloth
Ibuprofen (normally handed out to others)
sometimes I bring a camera, but with the fog here I normally don't expect any great views

anything else is back in my locker

Padded shorts?????

If you figure in-resort, sidecountry, backcountry, and my goofball summer skiing, the only common denominator is a whistle.

I almost never ski without one.

Don't leave home without it.

I found both of them to come in VERY handy when I fell & needed the sled when the good samaratins couldn't figure out how to call for ski patrol themselves......I've got ski patrol as #2 speed dial in my cell phone....

Otherwise - chapstick and FOOD!

"The Mountain"

This question always cracks me up .... when it comes to Pocono skiing.

I am 690 vertical feet (about ten minutes max), to my bag, the burger stand, and a well stocked bar!

A hanky to wipe my nose and a chapstick is about it. The guys with the packs and jackets stuffed till the pockets bulge crack me up. I will admit to keeping a spare set of clear lenses for my glasses for changing light sometimes.

To those of you who ski real mountains with rough conditions .... I can fully appreciate this thread. But in the Poconos ....
