1. The Warm Jacket. When we’re heading off for a ski vacation, part of the fun is getting in to town, maybe going to the local bars and restaurants. This puffer jacket from Victorinox Swiss Army will not only keep you warm, it’s downright good looking too, with a clean, no-logo look. It has down-fill and an attached hood, in great colors like this rich brown and a classic deep navy (click through the “shop it” button to view) that adds the right touch of masculine style to this functional piece. The nylon shell will help keep you dry, while the interior and exterior pockets are plentiful to hold all your stuff. Victorinox Swiss Army is a Swiss company that has been making quality technical gear for 130 years, so this is an investment worth making.

2. The Comfy Sweater. This cozy and very modern looking grey shawl collar cardigan from Everlane is the perfect sweater to pack for your ski vacation. The chunky ribbed, soft merino wool will keep you warm on those cold evenings. It’s a great packing piece because you can wear it casually over your plaid flannel shirt and jeans, or dressier with a solid or pattern shirt for dinner in town at your favorite restaurant. If you haven’t tried anything from Everlane yet, you won’t be disappointed. They are all about the customer, with a focus on pricing transparency and quality basics, keeping their prices down by only selling directly to the customer.

3. The Laid-back “Athleisure” Pants. A ski trip is the perfect time to get comfortable, but basic sweats aren’t always “nice” enough – especially if you’re vacationing with a group. These lambswool/cotton blend sweatpants are designed by Norse Project, a Copenhagen based outdoor outfitter, and sold by J. Crew. The front cargo pockets, faux fly and flat front elasticized waistband provide a modern finish with the comfort of sweats. Ideal vacation style.

4. The Cozy Shirt. Polo Ralph Lauren’s rugged outdoor aesthetic is ideal to keep you warm and looking good, with this faded plaid super soft wool shirt. The calfskin suede elbow patches and horn buttons make this more than just a basic flannel. Wear it as an overshirt with a long sleeve t-shirt or thermal, and your favorite jeans or corduroys, while you sit by the fire with a good scotch.

5. The Inviting Scarf. A scarf is a must for a wintery getaway, and it needs to be functional and versatile. From Scotland, this mélange (the navy and white color mix) 100% wool knit scarf from Norse Projects fits the bill. It’s incredibly soft, so it can be worn around your neck inside your coat. And since it’s so good-looking, you can wear it outside your coat to tie around your neck and face. It looks great with your navy, grey and black coats.

6. The Go-to Warm Socks. These are no ordinary wool socks to keep your feet warm. They are made by Mr. Gray, a Japanese company, using superior yarns and small patch vintage machines to knit their socks. The toes and heals are reinforced and the toe box is hand linked for extra comfort. If you are going to be walking around in your socks, these are the ones you want.

7. The Après Ski Boots. These Merrell boots are perfect to throw on after a day on the slopes. The leather uppers are waterproof and they are insulated with 200 grams of Thinsulate to keep you warm – that’s a lot. They even have special technology that lets inside moisture escape and keeps out the outside moisture. And all of this sits on top of a lugged outsole with special grip technology for ice and snow. Most importantly, these boots are easy on, easy off so you can get comfortable quickly.

8. The Flannel PJ’s. The smaller check pattern of these J. Crew flannel PJ bottoms are a modern update to a basic plaid. And, oh boy, are they soft and comfortable. The elasticized waist has an outside drawstring, while the side entry and back pockets make them a little more substantial – and suitable to wear around the extended family.

9. The Slippers. UGG® Australia knows a thing or two about comfortable and warm sheepskin footwear. So, when we’re looking for the ideal pair of slippers, we look to them. These classic closed slippers, with a molded rubber sole, make them a great shoe to wear around the house (or room) all day long. The interior sheepskin fleece keeps your feet toasty and naturally wicks away moisture to also keep your feet dry. The chestnut we’re showing is the perfect neutral color that works with everything.

10. The Fireside Fun. Yes, there are drinks to be had and that’s surely fun. But when you’ve completed a full day on the slopes, and you’re just relaxing by the fire, how about a game of Yahtzee? It is one of our favorite dice games, and it’s great fun for all ages to enjoy while appreciating those drinks. This travel set makes it convenient to pack for your vacation, so you can bring the fun with you.
