Ski Fun

Ski season is upon us but before you hit the slopes, make sure you’re kitted out and snow ready.

When it comes to skiing, it’s all about keeping warm but that doesn’t mean you need to look frumpy. The Mall has a great range of sports jackets that will keep you feeling toasty without restricting your movements on the slopes. Trespass have an incredible collection at great prices right now!

You can also pick up some stylish turtle necks to keep yourself covered from the cold from New Look, Next and Marks and Spencer.

Accessorize your look with some fun headwear. Whether you’re a knitted beanie baby, a faux fur fan or a sucker for string tied hats with ear flaps, there’s something to keep everyone looking good and keeping warm. Thick ski gloves are important too, so make sure you pick up a pair to stop your fingers freezing up.

Protect yourself from the snow glare with a new pair of shades. Choose from polarised, half jacket or prizm glasses and keep your eyes on the slopes. Alternatively, you can pick up a pair of ski goggles from retailers such as Sports Direct, who have a colourful collection in their Big Brand Sale.

No one enjoys that unexpected slip on the ice, so make sure you’ve got snow boots with good grip. Sports Direct have a great range of boot brands including Campri, Karrimor, Hi Tec and Helly Hanson all at brilliant prices. These won’t just keep you warm but will keep you on your feet! You can also purchase special protector sprays to keep your boots looking like new for longer.

It may be cold, but any avid skier will know it’s essential to take sunscreen with you for high altitude skiing. A sunscreen with a high SPF will help to block harmful UVB rays and prevent skin from burning. Boots and Savers both have a selection of sun lotions and after suns.

And for all of those travel miniatures, you can’t go wrong with a quick trip to Superdrug and Savers. Pick up mini shampoos, body wash and deodorants in mini sizes to fit more in your suitcase!
