It doesn’t matter if you’re going with friends or family, ski holidays remain a great time, far from the daily (and boring) 9-to-5. But if you don’t want your holidays to turn into a nightmare, make sure you have the right equipment to carry your skis. We all know how bulky they can be. If bags or sleeves are an option, straps are another. They don’t replace the bags but they are a lot smaller and cheaper and can do a great job especially between the chalet and the slopes. You can keep them in your pocket during the day and take them out again when you’re done skiing. They keep the skis together and make them a lot easier to carry.
