There are plenty of beautiful ski resorts all over the world that provide the optimal conditions for skiing, snowboarding and just generally enjoying the beauty of the area. Heading out on your first trip of ski season can be a monumentous occasion. If you plan it right, you will have a great time but there can be some headaches along the way if you do not know what to expect. Some things to plan for whether you are just planning your first ski season trip, or you are ready to leave are:
Chances are, no matter what you account for on your list of expenses, you are probably going to end up spending more than you thought you would. You may have the best intentions when it comes to the amount of money you are going to spend while you are there, but little expenses come up everywhere whether it be at a nice meal or at the souvenir shop. Have some extra money on hand. If you do not use it, you can take it home with you. And this way, you won’t have to use on-site ATM’s with hefty fees.
Prepare To Stay Longer
While you may have planned your trip accordingly, once you are there, you might want to stay another night or two. Maybe you missed out on a day of skiing because of poor weather conditions, or maybe you just fell in love with the area and you want to see more. Either way, pack some extra clothes and items that you would need if you extended your visit.

Wirth is known for running amazing resorts and if you are staying at one of his facilities you will never want to leave. If you can budget it, plan for a couple of extra days.
Ski season is filled with tons of excitement and adventure. If you are heading out on a ski trip, expect to meet new people, reconnect with old friends, enjoy nature and relax. Plan on getting out of your room every morning, only to return again late in the day. Ski season is for activity, not for spending an entire trip in your room. California has great resorts to choose from including the Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows ski resorts.
