What to Expect for a Winter Getaway during your Lake Tahoe Vacation



If you are planning to take your Lake Tahoe vacation during winter time, you will need to have your own packing list and need to know what to expect for your winter getaway.

You can be best prepared to make your own packing list as long as you are aware what to expect when you arrive to your vacation destination.

Common expectations for a tourist is that upon arrival, accommodation amenities will include but not limited to towels, linens, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, bath soap, shampoo, conditioner, paper towels, facial and bath tissue.

Kitchens will be stocked with dish soap, dish washer detergent, dish towels,
trash bags, utensils, cutlery, plate settings, glassware, basic pots and pans, toaster, and a coffee machine.

Some hotels provide additional sleeping mats, extra linens, cribs, high-chairs and baby-gates upon request.

But to be sure, contacting your hotel ahead and asking for the basic amenities will help you cut down on things you no longer need to take with you.

Units with fireplaces that need wood will have firewood provided. Laundry facilities will be available either inside the unit or in the same building.

If you plan to go skiing, snowboarding or simply relaxing, the experience and enjoyment of your Lake Tahoe winter vacation can be enhanced by the clothing and gear you bring with you.

In preparation for your trip, it is best to ensure that you have the right clothing and accessories to be comfortable in the varying mountain temperatures.

If you want to enhance your skiing and snowboarding experience, you need to make sure about things you need to bring along that would relate to your own physical comfort, here are some helpful tips,

Wear layers of clothing to keep you warm. Two to three medium weight layers are usually warmer than one bulky garment.

Layers also help wick sweat away to keep you warm and dry.

Keep your mid-section warm, your extremities will be warmer.

Keep yourself dry to prevent from freezing. New fabrics are designed to keep you warm and dry and make sure your gloves are insulated and waterproof, and that your outer layer is relatively water and windproof.
Make sure to cover your head, since you can lose a staggering 50% of your body heat if your head is not covered. A hat or a helmet will help keep your whole body warm.

It is also especially important to wear eye protection when you ski or snowboard. Consider wearing goggles when itís snowing or very cold. On a bright, sunny day, wear either dark goggles or UV protecting sunglasses, since UV rays and sunlight are a bit intense at high altitudes.

Also make sure to keep your feet warm. One of the most important things to remember is to keep your feet warm, dry and comfortable. You can purchase warm, lightweight, wool-blend ski and snowboard socks for anywhere between $10 and $20.

If you forget something, donít worry Ė many of these items can be purchased in retail stores located all over Lake Tahoe.

So with preparations almost a simple as tying your shoelaces, it is best to be aware of what to expect for a winter getaway during your Lake Tahoe vacation.
