Luggage and bags: Usually I'm only up there for a night or two, so an overnight bag is all I need.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Snow boots, ski clothing, parka, warm socks, long underwear... you know -- what do you wear in the snow? That's what to pack and wear!

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Remember that you're going to a higher altitude, so you should pack your gooey stuff in sealed baggies in case they pop open with the change of pressure. Don't forget sunscreen, lip balm and skin lotion.

Miscellaneous: For that long drive, you might want to bring along an XM stereo so you can hear some good tunes, a GPS unit for finding ways around traffic jams and your cell phone to let your friends know where you are and that you're safe when the roads are treacherous.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
