Are you dreaming of a cozy winter getaway in front of a crackling fire? Or maybe you have dreams of flying down a pristine ski slope or tubing with your kids down a snow-covered hill. Whatever your family enjoys, there is nothing more exhilarating than escaping the monotony of winter and taking advantage of all this glittering season has to offer. Your cold-weather vacation is calling, and it’s never too early to start thinking about what you’ll need and how to pack.
Packing for icy destinations doesn’t have to be a chore. Forget the heavy, overstuffed suitcases and unnecessary extras. This winter vacation checklist from Annapolis Propane & Fuels will help you streamline your luggage and sled right into the fun. From essential layers to accessories and entertainment, here is everything you need for a toasty, joyful and memorable winter vacation.
Think in Layers with Accessories
With the bulkiness of warm clothing, your suitcase will fill up faster than you think. The trick to winter packing is to keep warm without running out of luggage space. The solution is to think in layers. With the proper layers, you will be prepared for a snuggly morning eating pancakes and drinking coffee as well as an icy evening on uncrowded slopes. Stay comfortable as you pad around your lodge and when you venture outdoors with these cold-weather essentials. The best part? They will fit perfectly in your suitcase. Be sure to pack:
– Thin, insulating thermals or long underwear
– A cozy sweater or thick fleece instead of 3-4 tops
– Jeans or cargo pants that you can wear over thermal leggings
– A down jacket
– Waterproof gloves and mittens
– Wool hats or beanies that cover your ears and the base of your neck
– Wool socks
– Sturdy, waterproof boots
AP&F Tip: Wear your heaviest layer in the car or on the plane to keep warm and save space in your suitcase.
Indoor Heating Essentials
Snuggling next to a cozy fire is a great way to spend relaxing evenings at home during the winter. Using a propane fireplace is a great way to warm any room in your house. We offer a fantastic selection of manufacturers — White Mountain by Empire, Mendota Health, and Peterson. Our product lineup includes varying log set sizes – 18″, 24″, and 30″ – for convenient efficiency. This winter, enjoy many great family moments while surrounded by the warmth of your propane fireplace.
During the worst weather systems in the winter, your heating system remains an essential part of your family’s indoor comfort. Propane provides crucial reliability for an extremely reasonable price. The security is long-lasting with propane-fueled furnaces averaging about a five- to 10-year longer lifecycle than electric heat pumps.
Propane not only helps make your heating system better, but it also helps with your home’s water heater. A Rinnai® Tankless Water Heater is mounted to a wall, saving critical space in your house. A busy home can use a lot of water for meals and showers, but the tankless technology provides unlimited hot water. The back-up battery system is a pivotal feature if bad weather hits and power goes out.
Winter is a fantastic time to creating incredible moments with your family. We at Annapolis Propane & Fuels want you to know that the outdoor elements don’t have to hold you back from experiencing these great days. Always remember to pack sensibly, equip your home, and enjoy the winter’s bliss.
