Packing for a ski and snowboard music festival
Depending on which snow festival you are going to, you may need to pack slightly different for each. Such as if you were going to Rise Festival at the start of the season you would want to pack warmer clothes as it will be colder, whereas festivals like Snowbombing Festival and Snowboxx Festival at the end of the season will have warmer conditions.
