How to pack for a 5-day ski trip

Happy Easter, everyone! My husband and I just came back from a short getaway to Banff. Banff was on our bucket list for quite some time but it kept getting pushed back. So glad we finally made it to this charming little town. The trip was everything we hoped for. I will do a recap next week. Today, I wanted to share how we pack. I travel light. I can't remember the last time I checked my luggage. I prefer to travel with just my carry-on. I am definitely not one of those bloggers who has a suitcase full of clothes for blog photos. A bucket-list trip comes with a hefty price tag so I made sure to fully enjoy the experience while I was there. For a 5-day ski trip, we checked one ski bag and one boot bag. Each of us had one carry-on for personal items. We got down to the bare minimum. Hope you enjoy the post.
