What to Bring on a Winter Trip


Packing for a winter trip is always a little tricky when you live in a place where the coldest it gets is usually 55 degrees like we do. Lucky for us, this weekend in Big Bear Lake wasn’t as cold as it has been in the past. To be honest, the day was pretty warm, but at night the temperature dropped below freezing and since our cabin was right on the lake, it was even colder. Being from the snowy East Coast, I knew there were things I would have to pack to be prepared for the weather.

  1. L.L. Bean Woolies socks

I am obsessed. Anytime it gets around 40 degrees, which doesn’t happen too often here in SoCal, I pull these bad boys out and bask in my love for New England warmth!

  1. Moisturizer for dry skin

Being in the dry cold at a high altitude can really kill your skin.  I make sure to keep moisturizing throughout the day to make sure when I get back down to

  1. Hats, gloves and scarves

Pretty obvious. Staying warm is the differences between getting sick on your trip or not on your vacation. Stay warm.

  1. Layers

Cardigans, sweaters, t-shirts and long sleeves. I really bring them all when I go somewhere cold. You never know exactly how cold it is going to be and you can always remove layers so I just pile tees and sweaters on top of each other that way I am always comfortable.

What do you make sure you bring on a winter vacation?

  1. I find that when the room I’m sleeping in gets really dry, I can’t sleep… So I’ll wet down a towel and just hang it in the room letting it evaporate into the air. Works every time!
