Packing lists Packing list for ski touring
There are some items which are important that you have on your body or under your feet. It is good if these are prepared or close by so you can put them on when we start.
- Skis with touring binding or splitboard.
- Ski or snowboard boots compatible with your binding.
- Ski climbing skins
- Avalanche Rescue Equipment (included) shovel, probe and transceiver.
- Clothes depending on the weather. (Preferably thin gloves, shell jacket with a hood, neck warmer, warm hat and ski socks. Avoid clothes made of cotton).
A good backpack that sits relatively tight to the body but still allows you to move freely is good to have. If it has the option to fix skis to the sides, that is a good advantage point as well.
- Backpack (about 30-40 liters)
- Lunch / snacks (if not included)
- Water bottle (about 1 liter)
- Wind sack / bivy shelter (included)
- Small first aid kit (including tape and bandaid for blisters)
- Ski helm and goggles
- Extra layer for warmth (for example, neck warmer, thick gloves for going downhill, down jacket or dry shirt)
Some items are good to bring along but it is not something we require of you on single day tours. Sometimes they can stay in the backpack and sometimes we will leave them in the cabin.
- Map and compass
- Head torch
- Extra batteries
- Reparation kit
- Some tape
- Ski strap
- Small multitool
It is usually nice to bring some extra items to the basecamp – that means you can adjust clothing and equipment every day depending on weather and conditions.
- More underwear layers and ski socks
- Clothes to wear in the cabin
- Towel, toiletries and bed sheets (depending on your accommodation
