It is that time of year; the temperature has dropped, the snow has started to fall and the holidays are upon us. Perhaps it is time to start considering what you will buy for the skier in your life. Fear not, the Chalet at 11˚ has rounded up the top ski gifts to make your holiday shopping that much easier!
Hand and Foot Warmers
You can never have too many of these on-hand! For those cold days and nights on the mountain, the skier in your life will appreciate a supply of hand or foot warmers regardless of the brand.
Pocket Size Ski Wax
For quick and easy application on the mountain, mini ski-wax is a great thing to have on hand. Just dampen the end, rub it on your ski bases and off you go. Try the brand Zardoz (£11-13).
Hand-knitted caps are a lovely gift that will come in handy for all winter activities. You can find a colourful assortment to choose from at the local Christmas markets in the area.
Made from soft breathable cotton and an inner layer of fleece, the hoodies from www.mountainwarehouse.com are perfect for wearing underneath your ski/snowboard jacket or for apres ski.
A high performance base layer is essential for the warmth and comfort of any skier. Check out the merino base layers from www.mountainwarehouse.com for high-quality, breathable layers that last.
The Solomon Quest 23 backpack is great for any off-piste skiers. This backpack provides quick access and a soft, comfortable fit. You can buy it from www.solomon.co.uk.
A good pair of goggles will make a huge difference to the performance of any skier. Try Solomon’s Cosmis AFS Photo Goggles for optic clarity and lenses that never fog. Find them here: www.solomon.co.uk.
