Travel tips issued for skiers
The Ski Club of Great Britain is advising travellers jetting off on European ski holidays and North America ski holidays to maximise their packing potential by stuffing boots with extra goods.
Another way to create more room in the suitcase is to wear bulky ski jackets to the airport, the Ski Club notes.
Insurance policy details should be kept in wallets, while tools for adapting skis and so forth should not be stored in pockets as they will be confiscated at the airport.
It is advised that goggles are kept in hand luggage so that if the main luggage goes missing skiers are not left on the slopes squinting, while small and valuable items should be kept at the bottom of the baggage.
Before leaving the house, skiers should make sure they have charged their iPods and packed their adaptors and phone chargers.
Checking snow reports is also advised - although those travelling on European ski holidays this weekend will no doubt already be aware that snow is forecast across the Alps and beyond.
