Vacation planning can be stressful, planning your budget, your rental, what attractions to visit, and what to pack is often overwhelming. Which is why having a plan, a rental and a packing list of essentials can help make your vacation planning smoother. Whether you choose to come to celebrate the Holidays or you’re looking for some fantastic outdoor activities, Villa Roma has got plenty of fun activities to keep you busy on your visit to Callicoon NY.

What to Bring?

Don’t minimize the importance of layering up and packing a variety of clothes. Start by packing leggings and long-sleeve shirts, followed by fleece pants and sweatshirts. Choose a warm jacket and ski or snowboard pants, whichever you choose make sure they are waterproof. Socks are the most important item you pack, so don’t forget them! Pack a wool hat and scarf, as well as waterproof gloves or mittens. Gloves make it easier to grasp ski poles, zip-up jackets or strap your shoes. Mittens, on the other hand, are the warmest option.  

Where to Ski around Callicoon NY?

Unsurprisingly, finding the best ski slopes are an essential step to making sure your ski trip lives up to your expectations. New York State has dozens of ski resorts and infamous slopes including Holiday Valley, Gore Mountain, Whiteface Mountain, and Hunter Mountain. Search online forums, local blogs, and ask friends and family for recommendations on the best spots to hit the slopes.
