Go Intel: Travel Apps for Skiers
C'Mon Get Appy
Some apps make travel easier; others make it more fun. These do both.

App: Packing Pro
For: iPhone, iPad
Why: The only thing worse than spending  $200 on a pair of ugly snowpants because you left yours at home is arriving at the airport without your passport. Snuff these possibilities by creating a packing list with the Packing Pro app. Customizable lists based on destination, activity, travel buddies, and any other specifics you add will keep track of what’s in your bag and what’s not.
