    A holiday in the Alps

    by leanne_pearc Written Mar 19, 2011

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Thermal socks keep your feet warm when you are constantly treading snow

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: One of the best things that i bought on the trip was a thermal flask and we used it everyday filling it with tea or soup. It kept us warm and stomachs full.

    Miscellaneous: A small backpack to put basics supplies for a day of skiing or going up the mountains.

    Luggage and bags: A small backpack for daytrips in the mountains or a larger backpack for longer trips.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Hiking boots and trekking poles.
    Foresee also winter clothes in Summer. The weather is unpredictable.

    Miscellaneous: You can buy all the gear you need in Chamonix. But your credit card might get overheated!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Be prepared for any weather conditions. The picture above was taken in July and the weather can change really quick when you're up on 4000 meters. One minute it's beautiful and sunny and the next thing you notice is a snow storm. So, you better take some warm clothing.
