Packing Your Car for A Winter Sports Trip

We’re coming up to that time of the year where many of us want to hit the slopes. As the weather starts to cool, we long for some winter sports fun. We want to speed down the mountainside on a snowboard, feeling the wind rushing around us. You might also be looking forward to a nice cold beer while you watch everyone else.


Winter sports are great fun. Whether you prefer skiing, snowboarding, or something else entirely, it’s a great adrenaline rush which many people enjoy. We’re lucky enough to be close to many fantastic ski spots. Which means that you can drive there, without needing to spend a fortune flying your equipment abroad or hiring when you reach your destination.

While that might sound great, people often find it much easier said than done when they are faced with getting a snowboard, boots, winter clothes, goggles, gloves, ski rack, and other equipment into their car. Here are some top tips to help you to get it all in, without too much stress.

Stay Safe

When it comes to packing a car up, safety should be your priority. If you currently drive a small family car but plan to travel a lot, you might want to invest in something bigger, with the option to expand. Check out Aftermarket accessories for the LDV T60 Ute for an idea of what might be more suitable for your needs.

But, whatever you drive, safety is critical. Don’t overload the car to the point that bits are hanging off, you can’t see out of your mirrors, or you can’t sit in the driver’s seat comfortably. Double check site and comfort and go for a short practice drive before you hit the road to get a feel for driving a loaded car.

It’s also essential that you make sure everything is strapped down correctly, and not able to move about too much during your journey. Double check everything before you set off.

Start with a Clean Car

If your car is filled with junk and bits and bobs, you’re already taking up valuable space. Clear out your car first so that you’ve got as much free space as possible.

Pack Sensibly

If you are traveling out to the mountains, it’s a good idea to keep sunglasses, gloves, a hat and coat in the cabin with you, just in case. Then, try to pack your streetwear separately from your snowboarding gear. This will make everything much easier to unpack later on.

Play Tetris

Packing your trunk, or roof box with all of the things that you need for a ski trip is like a game of Tetris. You’ve got different packages in different shapes and sizes, and you need to find a way to make it all securely fit together. This isn’t going to work if you leave it until the last minute. It’s not like just throwing a suitcase into the car.

Start packing up in plenty of time, and spend a while rearranging and finding the best positions for your bags. Pack larger, heavier bags and packages first and then try to arrange the smaller, lighter bags around them and on top of them.
