What to Pack for Breckenridge

You can find all the essentials I take on every trip here, from my favorite toiletry bag and travel purse to the best power bank I’ve found to keep my phone taking great photos all day long.

Rent your gear from Kit Lender

Here are some specific favorites I always pack for Breckenridge:

Merrell women’s waterproof hiking boots — Waterproof and lightweight.

Osprey Dry Stuff Pack — I love this because it packs down into its own pocket and is great for outdoor activities.

3-in-1 Jacket — This is a great lightweight waterproof rain jacket plus a puffer for warmth, which can all be worn together or each piece separate. Perfect for the variable weather you can get throughout the day/night in Breck in the spring or fall. Check out this one if you prefer a fleece to a puffer.

LL Bean Winter Jacket — This is my non-ski winter jacket. It’s warmer than the one listed above that I use in spring/fall. I’ve used it on countless winter trips in temperatures down to the teens. Would buy it again!

Columbia ski pants — I have these in two colors, and they’re my favorite ski pants I’ve ever owned. They’re warm in the winter but don’t keep you too warm for spring skiing.

Columbia midweight baselayer — This is a great baselayer in the winter and plenty warm enough for early or late season skiing without anything but a jacket on top.

Columbia Omni-Heat baselayer — This is the baselayer you want when it’s really cold out.

Smartwool full cushion ski socks — My favorite ski socks. They’re comfy in my boots and keep my feet warm without making me sweat.

Revo x Bode Miller Ski Goggles — I got these ski goggles a couple of seasons ago, and they’re by far the best ski goggles I’ve ever had. They work in low light, sunlight and everything in between. Plus, they look great on!

Winter pompom hat — I have this hat in two colors because it’s so warm, comfy and stylish.

Ski strap and pole carrier — Even if you only have a short walk with your skis, you’ll thank yourself for buying this great over-the-shoulder carrier. Worth every penny!

Power bank — This can recharge my Google Pixel 6 Pro more than three times on a single charge so I can take photos and videos all day.

GorillaPod mini-tripod — Wrap the flexible arms of this around a tree branch, fence, sign…anything. Great for taking shots of you or the whole group with the gorgeous Breckenridge scenery.
