We are now entering the peak season for winter sports.
Alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, and freestyle skiing are highly popular in many regions with snowy landscapes during this time of year. Snowboarding is also more popular than ever and has a huge following all over the world.
Perhaps you prefer ice skating, sledding or tobogganing. Winter sports are not only great fun, they’re brilliant for blowing away those January blues. Whatever your choice of sport, travelling to the alps can be stressful without the luggage.
If you’re a winter sports enthusiast, the best bags are those which are durable, practical and have specialised compartments that serve your needs.
If you love skiing and snowboarding, backpacks are particularly useful. Many people like to look for those which have straps to carry skis or snowboards externally, along with compartments for goggles, avalanche safety gear and hydration sleeves.
Duffel bags are utterly brilliant if you love winter sports. These are often large, cylindrical bags that are ideal for a wide range of activities.
For those hauling larger gear like snowshoes or bulkier equipment, a sturdy, weather-resistant duffel with reinforced straps can be ideal. It’s particularly good to pick bags with separate compartments or pockets for organisation.
They often have a top closure and are carried by hand or slung over the shoulder. Duffle bags come in various sizes, materials and designs, offering plenty of space for packing clothes, gear and other essentials for trips or workouts. They're versatile and popular due to their spaciousness and easy-to-carry design.
Technical backpacks made of durable materials with padded straps, and multiple pockets for organising gear are also great.
Waterproofing or water-resistant features are obviously a massive plus for those who love winter sports.
For those venturing into the backcountry, backpacks with dedicated space for safety gear (such as a shovel, probe and beacon), along with additional compartments for food, extra layers, and emergency supplies, are essential. The Samsonite Ecodiver backpack range has it all for adventure seekers.
Valise Luggage can help you enjoy winter sports to the fullest this season.
We have a massive choice of bags which are suitable for travelling to ski resorts anywhere in the world. Whether you’re travelling solo or with your family, we can help make the process more enjoyable.
