Top Packing List for a Winter Vacation

It is officially winter here at our Pocono’s Resort! And we have plenty of outdoor activities to keep you and your family entertained! You may be thinking, it’s cold in the Pocono’s what could I possibly want to do outside? Well, once you are here and see all the fun our other guests are having, you are going to want to partake in some of those activities. But not if you don’t have the right gear.

We compiled a list of the best cold weather items you’ll want to bring with you to enjoy the outdoors at our historic resort. And better yet, they don’t even have to take up much space in your suitcase.

The List
  • Boots (hiking or snow boots)
  • Thick Socks
  • Hat
  • Scarf
  • Gloves
  • Jacket
  • Thermal Leggings (long johns)
  • Lightweight Down Jacket
The Extras
  • Thermos
  • Hot Hands
  • Ski/Snowboard Gear

We recommend bringing/wearing layers. Especially if you plan on taking one of our daily guided hikes. You might work up a sweat, even if it’s only 30 degrees out! Layers will allow you to make yourself comfortable. Thermal leggings can double as sleeping attire as well! And luckily for you, Shawnee has a washer and dryer available (pack a laundry pod or two and a few quarters) so you can wash any items that may have been soiled during your outdoor winter adventures.

You don’t need to be an avid skier or snowboarder to enjoy the winter adventures here at Shawnee, you just need to pack the right items. Book your Pocono’s Winter Vacation today! View Poconos Resort Deals Here.
