On The Slopes- Technical Wear

With skiing thought to have been ‘practiced’ as early as 600 BC, the winter sport is as popular now as it has ever been. Groomed pistes, fresh air, bright blue skies along with sport/ exercise and guilt free aprés-ski, it’s easy to see why a trip to the slopes is so attractive.

With it, comes an inevitable need for style- to keep up to date with the crowd at La Folie Douce in Val d’Isere or the MooserWirt and the Krazy Kanguruh in St Anton. Naturally, warmth, technical ability and comfort are essential too- and today, all can be combined in to one hell of an outfit. Look great, feel great- here’s how.
