While resort season may infer a tropical destination, that doesn't mean your excursion can't involve a little (or a lot) of snow. If you plan to hit the slopes this February, packing the right items will make the world of difference. Of course, looking cute (to boot) is a bonus!

Here are the essentials you will need for a pleasant and playful ski vacation:

Under Layers
  • Light-weight, dry fit long underwear bottoms
  • Dry fit compression long sleeve athletic top
  • Breathable (or non-breathable ... depending upon your personal cold factor) fleece
  • Smartwool socks

Outer Layers
  • Great fitting, vented ski pants
  • Ski coat or shell
  • Super warm gloves
  • Cushioned ski boots
  • Comfortable, fitted ski helmet and goggles

For Your Skin
As for a little après ski in-the-evening inspiration, how about a knit/fur dress, fierce tights, shearling-lined boots, a fabulous parka, fuzzy earmuffs and accessories with many pops of cheerful color. Your chateau awaits!
