These are the basics, but let’s delve a bit deeper into all the details about packing for a nice winter vacation.

When reflect off bright white snow, sun rays can be pretty dangerous. Also, sunglasses will help you while driving your car during those short daylight hours.
- Sunscreen – Yes, sunscreen during winter vacation is a must.
- Lower-body base layer – Though most people find it uncomfortable to wear something underneath their ski pants or jeans, remember that you will be spending extended time outdoors in the cold, so packing a base layer to keep your legs warm is a must.
