Learn what's trending across POPSUGAR. Heading to the mountains? Don't forget to pack for snow and safety! Aside from cute snow gear, we believe that safety essentials are just as important. Here is our go-to packing list that includes everything from skin protection to padding to keep you on the slopes all day long! Ski Goggles Protect your eyes from the sun and glare with a pair of Bolle Mojo Snow Goggles ($40). Unlike sunglasses, they stay put and offer protection from the harsh Winter elements, like wind. Bolle Mojo Snow Goggles $40 from amazon.com Buy Now Safe (and Stylish) Helmet Although you may not want to wear a helmet, you really should. The Smith Optics Allure Helmet ($76-$100) will protect you just in case something happens. It is also lightweight, stylish, and can be connected to your iPod. Smith Optics Allure Helmet $76 from amazon.com Buy Now Plenty of Water Because it can sometimes be hard to access water on the slopes, ensure you stay hydrated with this CamelBak Hydration Pack ($68). We love how convenient it is to carry water (compared to a water bottle) and how it has room for snacks and essentials. CamelBak Hydration Pack $68 from rei.com Buy Now Trail Map It's always important to keep a map handy. Ensure you won't get lost with iTrailMap (free). Use it to get high-resolution maps of over 750 ski resorts. Best part? You can access the app without cell-phone service, because the maps are predownloaded. Extra Padding If you're new to skiing or snowboarding or just want to protect your knees, then wear a pair of ProTec Double Down Knee Guards ($30). These will reduce bruising during falls and offer better support for your knees. ProTec Double Down Knee Guards $30 from xsportsprotective.com Buy Now Sunscreen Although the Winter cold can have us forgetting about sunburns, wearing SPF on the slopes is a must. Since Mission Skincare creates products with athletes in mind, the SPF-packed sunscreen ($4) and tinted lip balm ($3) are sure to keep you protected on the slopes — just don't forget to reapply!
