This is an overnight trip. You will need to bring snow and winter appropriate clothing, especially a spare change of clothes, including undergarments and shoes. Pack your gear (clothes, toiletries, first aid kit, spare clothes, etc.) in a small duffle bag.

You will need to bring cash for meals and souvenirs. We recommend between $25 and $40.

If you do not already know how to ski, mountain crew will be able to provide basic instructions for you to enjoy a beginner's slope.
