Skiing, although fun, can be extremely dangerous, so you’ll need to take out a high level of travel insurance that covers winter sports. You can check out some great places to purchase travel insurance right here.
You will need to check the rules of your specific airline to find this out. If you purchase a package skiing holiday, many packages include ski luggage.
Now! Skiing is a popular hobby with quite a short season so the sooner you book the better chance you have at getting the dates you want and a good room in a nice hotel.
This can vary by year and destination, but generally ski resorts start opening in mid-November.
