ds is going skiing in america with his school next month. i have a very short list of what he needs from school, but i'm concerned about any 'little' essential i might not know about or pack (dont ski myself) any help purlease....
also its his first big trip away from home, so anything that could ease this for him>?
any thing especially good for long flights or waiting around in airports?
I think i'm more nervous than him!
Make sure everything is warm. Go for layers rather than bulk, so a couple of long sleeved vests or t shirts, polo necks, a fleece or two (sleeveless ones are great as less bulky) and a windproof/waterproof outer layer. Hat and fleece ear band. We found that a sort of neckwarmer (like a cylinder of fleece fabric to go over head) was great and far better than a scarf against the chill. Worth investing in good quality gloves, socks and sunglasses/goggles. You can also get mini combi packs of cream and lipsalve to reapply whilst out and then he can apply normal suncream in the morning and top up. He could also take a couple of changes of casual clothes for evenings but these could double up as under layers for later in the week.
