Skiing in Texas?? No—unfortunately you can’t ski the Lone Star State, but you are just a drive or short flight away from perfect snow conditions in the states that make up the Four Corners: New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, and Arizona. Each state is home to ski resorts, along with the amenities and transportation options you need to make your trip memorable and inexpensive. 

Ski Equipment—Check!

Next, what you want to consider when planning your next ski vacation is saving on winter sports equipment before you leave. Most of the airports near ski areas have a separate baggage claim carousal specially made for ski equipment, so you can check your skis and boots and know they will be well taken care of. Renting and buying ski equipment near the mountains will definitely cost you more, so take a look at the sporting equipment stores near you and find excellent deals and discounts near you.

Consider what you’ll need. One of the reasons people associate ski vacations with money is because of the additional items you need while skiing. Your base layer should be a thermal designed to keep your body heat protected, along with one wool pair of socks (never wear two socks when skiing). In addition to a great pair of ski pants and coat, you’ll most likely need hats, waterproof gloves, a helmet, ski goggles, and often a Balaclava. Use the money you save with these online deals to purchase these items once, and good quality gear will last you years to come.

Ski Clubs Near You

If you are interested, you should definitely check out local ski clubs who provide you with a connection to another person in your area who loves skiing, and also sets up group travel throughout the year to ski resorts throughout the world. You often save money on group travel and who knows, maybe someone out there has extra equipment. Some active ski clubs in Texas are Space City Ski & Adventure Club, The Texas Ski Council, the Dallas Ski Club, Texas Twisters Ski & Adventure Club, and Austin Skiers & Boarders. Trust us, there are plenty more to help you either get started on a life-long love of skiing.
