"Packing List" Switzerland Packing List Tip by kathyceo

Switzerland What to Pack: 41 reviews and 29 photos

Luggage and bags: We chose to rent skiis, so we had to pack ski boots and clothing, as well as formal clothing for a five star hotel. (Jacket and tie required for dinner). We had several bags, but booked them to be delivered straight to the hotel rather than dealing with them in Zurich. There was an additional charge of $15US per bag for this leaving Boston, but it was worth it.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you are going to St Moritz, and you have a fur, be sure to wear it. Animal rights activists should avoid this small enclave of privledge. Every color, shape, size and style is everywhere, and men sport fur collers as well. We were so warm in our layered ski gear on the slopes that we stripped after every run to the point that we had no long underwear, no gloves, hat and jacket left open!

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen a must.

Photo Equipment: Dont go to Switzerland without a camera. We brought our digital because every glance at the alps required a new photo.
