SimkiwinkiAvalanche stuff, small first aid kit, and sometimes skins if I wanna ski some sidecountry lines (I ski in Europe)
Guy_SkiOur home mountains lodge is prolly only a mile or two from the top of the hill so all the park guys will bring a backpack up to the top so they dont have to go inside if they need something. I know this isnt what you were asking about but I thought I would share
OnederfulPeople at my home slope that ski park bring like drinks up and sit them at the top but our main park is so tiny that it takes less then 15 seconds to go down.
DeebieSkeebiesim a coach so i roll around with mine at resorts strictly to hold other athletes lunches,extra layers, gopros, shovels to build booters, radios, competiton start sheets and info, etc. basically like a ski caddy in a way.
TrickyDick470If you are staying in bounds and aren't carrying beers or filming equipment (or a shovel) I don't really see the benefits of wearing a pack outweighing the cons. Or if you are at a very small resort. Depending on the weather (e.g. if it is cold and I am wearing a heavy jacket with lots of pockets) I can carry beers and snacks no problem in my coat. Obviously if you are hiking / going into avy terrain a pack is necessary. (edited to add shovel for kicker building)
I just can't stand it when people don't take their packs off on the lift and sit at a weird angle and crowd up my space... especially because it's always a group of two or more sitting sideways. Probably my biggest pet peeve when it comes to being on the chair.
I also think it's funny in the early season when there are a handful of runs open and people are carrying huge packs for their epic day on the groomers. To each their own I guess.

AlextheskibumIf you plan on skiing deep powder, or going into the backcountry ALWAYS bring your pack. It is essential for you to carry your avalanche gear, ten essentials, as well as any other gear that might benefit you. Also snacks. And weed :)
