What to Pack for Spring Break in the Mountains

Happy Monday!

Spring break is going to be a much-needed respite from the craziness of this semester. Between school, work, and an internship I feel like I have been working non-stop since week one. I’ll be going to a small town in the mountains with my family so I plan to leave all my textbooks at home and just soak in the fresh air and beautiful views.

I love winter hiking, and this will be my last chance this winter so I definitely plan to spend a couple of days on the local trails, but I also can’t wait to explore the town because mountain towns in Colorado are always filled with adorable restaurants, coffee shops, and hopefully a bookstore!

Colorado weather is totally unpredictable so it can be hard to know what to pack especially in the spring so today I’m going to share what I’d pack for a week in the mountains.


For Hiking

The key to staying comfortable and safe while hiking is to dress in layers. Wear breathable pants that you can move around in like a pair of workout pants or hiking pants like these. Layer a lightweight but warm jacket over a short sleeve top. Finish with sturdy shoes and a hat and you’ll be ready to go!

For Exploring the Town

If you’ve ever been to a mountain town you know that parking is usually a disaster. For that reason, it’s always a good idea to pack shoes you can walk around a lot in. This hoodie from Everlane adds a street style edge to the basic black hoodie and pairs well with a pair of boyfriend or maybe some raw hem jeans.

Last but not least there is nothing more fun than relaxing in a hot tub surrounded by snow so don’t forget to pack a swimsuit. Just make sure you also bring a towel for the dash back inside!
