So you guys are the ones carrying your huge backpacks on the chairlift when everyone's asking "Why the hell do you need all that stuff?"

Of course, We have had this discussion before. Not only what you carry, we have also debated the pros and cons of skiing with or without a pack.

I usually ski larger areas with a pack. Or if there's a chance I may leave the ski area boundary I will have a pack on. Most days at most mountains I leave it off and stuff my pockets with stuff.

What do I carry - way too much. That's my problem. If I have a pack I seem to have to fill the sucker up.

Thats fantastic!


3 goggles, (clear, low light and bright light)
2 pairs of gloves
1 ipod nano
cooler with drinks and lunch
extra socks
couple hats
chapstick


All of this sits in my car though. I don't carry a pack.
one set of gloves, ipod, chapstick and 1 goggle is all I'll have on me. If I need anything I'll hoof it to my truck.

I just pack a few towels from the motel so I can look cool like the rest of you dorks. SHEESH. Do you really need to carry all that crap when you're sking in bounds at a ski resort? I think it's just for looks.


OK. Let the flame war begin!

That's bouquet. I have problems with that t/y thing too.
Hey don't get me wrong because I pack too. But only when I'm outback. I've seen too many people hanging off the chair when a strap snagged on the chair as the unloaded. Be smart, put your stuff in your pockets.

I can't stand wearing a pack while skiing, but I need somewhere to store my h2o. I don't really put much else in besides the bladder for my water, but on the days you don't feel like stopping for lunch, it's great to be able to carry some food. I've also been pretty glad that I had the pack on a few times while spring skiing - it's great to be able to stuff away your shell once you get hot.

When in bounds I take the following:
  • Samsung i730 Cell Phone (think treo) - yes I ski with my phone on - but it's bluetooth along with my music.
  • iPod w/ bluetooth transmitter
  • Moto Bluetooth headphones for iPod/Cell phone
  • Canon SD600 Elph
  • Extra glove liners
  • Carmex
If I'm going to be skiing hard that day, I may go with arctic camelback filled with power/gatorade and possibly a second goggle lense. Persimon(bright) and Smoke Blue(not bright)..

Out of bounds is the same plus:
  • GMRS Walkie Talkie/GPS unit
  • First Aid Kit
  • Jerky
  • Shovel + probe
  • Skins
