I’ll be hitting ski slopes for the first time in three seasons in a month, before then, we have to contend with small strangers at the door!
Reviews of ski gear from skis to lids; where would we be without all the ski gear to go skiing
Billed as ‘the ultimate thermal sock’, the original Heat Holders socks offer a 2.3 tog rating and are available for both Men and Women.
Smith I/O Recon Ski Goggles. Fantastic gadget – but is it going too far? The price would make your eyes water; even if you were wearing the googles.
I have been sent some P-20 sun tan lotion to try. Now, to be honest, when I’m skiing there isn’t much flesh on show, so I don’t have to worry about sunburn.
I’ve been building up my leg strength, it isn’t 100% and I’m more nervous on slopes than I was. Hence investigating and then getting a Ski Mojo.
Time to invest in good ski goggles after trying on several pairs from Smith, as well as others from Bolle, Oakley and Sinner, I opted for Smith Vice.
You have probably owned a ski helmet for between 10 and 20 years. If you are still wearing your first one, isn’t it about time you got a new one?
I read reviews and opted for the Dynastar Intense 10. They hold edges like I’m on rails. They turn when I want them too. They deal with lumps and bumps with ease. If I had one niggle it would be the weight; not noticeable when in use, but they are heavier than my other skis when carrying them from bus to lift to piste.
Looking around, reading reviews and already being a fan of Thule, I came across their RoundTrip Ski Roller Bag. I knew it would be well made. I knew its features would be well thought through. The bag could accommodate two pairs of skis and a fair bit of kit quite easily. So, that’s what we bought.
After record breaking snowfall in our part of Austria and the magnificent job of the piste-teams to make the mountains safe, those off-piste activities can now begin. With shovel, probe, extra clothes, food, drink, camera and other essential back-country skiing kit packed, we ventured out. He’s the Thule Upslope Review update.
