Packing Tips from Julia Kern: US Ski Team-er and World Champs Medalist
Lumi Experiences is excited to support athletes on the US Ski Team like Julia Kern. Julia won a bronze medal in the Team Sprint at the World Championships last winter, and she is also a great representative off the race course.
Like several of the top-US racers who hold dual-citizenship (Jessie Diggins: US/Canadian, Sophia Laukli: US/Norwegian), Julia Kern holds US/German citizenship and speaks fluent German. Kern's parents are both from Germany, though Kern grew up around Boston. Since childhood, cross cross-country ski treks in Europe have been a favorite past family tradition, including this year where the Kern family spent the week together skiing in snowy Toblach, Italy before the Tour de Ski.
This is the 9th consecutive winter that Julia is traveling the World Cup circuit for 4 months straight and she has her packing dialed in. As Lumi guests are starting to pack for their trips this winter, we asked Julia for recommendations on packing for ski trips. Check out Julia’s top 5 unique packing tips in this short video and see which 3 passports she carries with her!
Hopefully Julia’s packing hacks are helpful for your upcoming skiing adventures. If you want to take a ski trip to some of Julia's (and our!) favorite destinations across Europe next winter, we’re offering an early booking discount on all 2025 Lumi trips.
