Six things you don’t need to pack for a Hunter Chalets holiday
The combination of limited luggage allowance and bulky ski gear means that every little thing matters when it comes to packing for a ski holiday. The less is more mantra is easier said than done when you need to allow for minus 15˚ wind chill and glorious, bluebird skies.
Luckily, we can take some of the stress of packing away for you. Whether you are travelling with kids or travelling with work, we have six things you don’t need to worry about putting in your suitcase…and one thing you won’t have to worry about before you leave.
It’s almost impossible to travel anywhere now without thinking about bringing your laptop along with you. Whether it is for work purposes or for watching movies, most of us feel we need our laptops.
At Chalet 46˚ we have an iMac, printer, Wi-Fi and office desk for guests to use for work or leisure purposes as we know how important it is to stay connected, even on holiday.
Each bedroom has its own TV/DVD player and the cinema room has a plethora of DVD’s to choose from.
So that’s one less thing to pack this year!
Similarly, adults and kids alike will often travel with an IPad or notebook but with one in each of our properties there is no need to add it to your luggage allowance for this year’s ski holiday.
Our iPad’s have a collection of great apps already downloaded for your ease. From the interactive piste map, snow forecast and resort information to children’s games and news apps, there is something for everyone and every need.
Each iPad has its own Spotify music account so guests can choose and stream any music they want and make playlists…all you need to do is decide who gets to choose the music!
There is nothing better than a great powder day on the mountain than perhaps a great powder day on the mountain that you were able to catch on camera.
Each of our properties has the latest GoPro and attachments for our guests use and enjoyment. After taking in all the action you can download the footage on to the Chalet 46˚ computer to transfer and take home, upload it on to your YouTube channel or have a screening on one of the properties televisions.
Packing toiletries seems to consume half of the luggage allowance…or at least for some of us! Whilst most hotels and accommodation offer toiletries for their guests, it is the quality of the product that makes the difference as to whether you pack your own anyway.
Our chalets and apartments all come with luxurious toiletries from The White Company that really mean you don’t have to bring your own. Tried and tested, the shampoo and conditioner not only smell wonderful but they leave your hair feeling light and soft just as you would expect from your own products.
The White Company hand wash, shower gel and moisturizer are also provided so you don’t need to worry about packing any heavy toiletries.
- Hairdryers and Straighteners
Realising when you get to a hotel that the hairdryer you are supplied with is less powerful than trying to shake your hair dry is something that many of us can disappointingly relate to.
That’s why we have selected top of the range DIVA Veloce professional hairdryers for our properties. These powerful hairdryers are industry standard and used by hairstylists throughout the world meaning you can safely rely on these and leave the travel hairdryer behind.
We also provide DIVA Session Instant Heat hair straighteners in all properties. The chromatic plates heat up to 230˚ and have a variable heat dial so you can select what you need for your styling requirements.
Two less things to think about bringing on holiday!
- Movies, games and gaming devices
After a hard day on the hill it is lovely to relax in the evening whether that means curling up by the fire and watching a movie, playing board games with all the family or letting the kids spend time gaming; we provide everything you need to enjoy some down time in the chalets and apartments.
Chalet 46˚ has its own cinema room which is well stocked with a movie library, gaming console, games library and a selection of fun board games to suit all ages and preferences.
Both Copper Lodge and Apartment 6˚ also benefit from a wide selection of DVDs, games and gaming consoles for everyone to enjoy.
- And one thing you don’t need to do before you leave the house…
Set the TV recorder!
With UK Sky television in each of our properties you don’t need to worry about missing any of your favourite programmes whilst you are away. The full complement of channels is available including sport and movies to keep everyone entertained.
