Spring Skiing to Laguna Beach: How to Pack for Your Multi-Climate Vacation

Spring Skiing to Laguna Beach: How to Pack for Your Multi-Climate Vacation

This year's ski trip is in the spring. By this time I’m thinking Caribbean or anywhere warm and near a beach. Take me anywhere besides somewhere cold! My family, being the ski lovers we are, mixed with the timing of school breaks, leaves us with spring skiing. With our daughter leaning more toward the tropical vacation versus a ski vacation we landed on a compromise; Deer Valley for 6 days and Laguna Beach for 6 days. Packing is a bit of a challenge going from cold to warm. I like a little Après Ski action, the moon boots, flashy fur coats, and all. Great pieces for coming right off the mountain or staying on the mountain for a little fun and festiveness. I love being outside any time of the year so this is perfect. Now on to how to take items to layer so we don’t over pack. From Utah skiing to Laguna beach California, here are some fashion options that will suffice for both climates.

 Transitioning from cold weather skiing in Utah to warm beach vibes in Laguna Beach requires versatile packing and outfits that can adapt to both climates and styles. Here's a guide to help you pack efficiently while maintaining your sense of fashion: 


Layering Pieces

Choose versatile items that can be layered for warmth in the mountains and easily shed for the beach. Examples include:

   - Thermal base layers

   - Lightweight sweaters or fleece pullovers

   - Packable down jacket or vest

   - Flannel shirts or cardigans

   - Convertible pants (convertible to shorts)

   - Leggings or yoga pants for both skiing and lounging

   - Scarves and beanies for the slopes, swap for sun hats and sunglasses at the beach


Invest in quality outerwear that can withstand the cold of the mountains and still look stylish at après ski, such as:

   - Ski jacket with a removable liner or shell

   - Waterproof and insulated ski pants

   - Fashionable parka or trench coat for chilly evenings



From moon boots to sandals, here are options for both settings:

   - Ski boots for the slopes

   - Apres-ski boots or stylish snow boots for après ski activities

   - Comfortable sneakers for exploring Laguna Beach

   - Open-toed sandals for beach days and casual evenings



Enhance your outfits with accessories that add flair and functionality:

   - Statement jewelry or scarves for après ski style

   - Crossbody bag or backpack for carrying essentials on the slopes and beach

   - Sunglasses with UV protection for both snow and sun

   - Moisturizing lip balm and sunscreen for outdoor protection

Versatile Clothing

Choose clothing items that can transition seamlessly from ski resort to beach town:

   - Sweater dresses that can be worn with leggings and boots in the mountains, and with sandals on warmer days

   - Oversized sweaters or hoodies for cozy evenings by the fireplace and cool beach nights

   - Denim or utility jackets that work as outerwear in the mountains and as a stylish layer at the beach



Don't forget to pack your swimsuits and cover-ups for beach days in Laguna Beach. Opt for versatile styles that can be mixed and matched with your existing wardrobe.

By selecting versatile pieces that can be mixed and matched, you can create stylish outfits that suit both the slopes of Deer Valley and the beaches of Laguna Beach without overpacking. Remember to prioritize comfort and functionality while still expressing your personal style.
