Packing clothing is one area where some people tend to go overboard. Remember, there is no reason to bring your whole wardrobe for a week long vacation! To cut down on overpacking, keep the following tips in mind:

  • Our cabins come with washers and dryers, so you can bring fewer clothes and do a load of laundry during your vacation
  • Bring versatile clothing that you can explore nature in but dress up for a night in town.
  • Roll your clothes and arrange them vertically in your suitcase, like a filing cabinet to fit them easily.
  • Check the weather before packing so you know whether to prepare for rain, snow, or warm weather.
  • Always bring a light jacket our sweater regardless of the season for the cool mountain evenings.
