uggs uk sale online What to pack
5. HatWe love a hat that’s fleece lined to avoid an itchy head and long enough to cover your ears. Our top tip is to take a few you’ll be happy of a spare if yours gets wet.
We love Bonfire, Snow + Rock, O’Neil.
6. SunglassesGreat for blue sky days and competent skiers (big tumbles plus sunnies are not a good match). UV protection, and shatterproof lenses and frames are crucial.
We love Oakley, Electric, Bolle.
7. GogglesA good pair of goggles will see you through sunny skies or falling snow.
The lenses are the most important thing, so make sure yours give you crystal clear vision, are anti fog and offer UV protection. It’s worth splurging on these.
We love adidas, Oakley, Electric.
8. Apres jacketDefinitely pack a second jacket or gilet it will come in useful in the evenings when jacket number one is drying, or you simply don’t trust yourself not to misplace it.
We love Tommy Hilfiger, Uniqlo, Juicy Couture.
9. Ski jacketMake sure you have the right jacket for the temperature. If it’s the middle of winter, go for a thicker jacket with a down lining or a jacket with an extra layer.
If you’re a spring skier you’ll be OK with a shell and some clever layering to keep you warm on the chairlift.
We love Bonfire, Roxy,
10. Neck warmerA secret weapon on long, cold chairlifts; fleecy ones are great to snuggle into and keep out whipping winds.
We love Snow + Rock.
11. SPFSuper strong sun and bright white pistes mean your skin needs serious protection.
Choose an SPF of at least 30 for your face and lips.
We love Dermalogica, ZO1.
12. Blister plastersA total lifesaver for sore, blistered feet, especially if you’re wearing rental boots.
We love Compeed.
13. Apres ski shoesAvoid Ugg style boots as their slippy soles are useless on icy streets.
Instead, go for a boot with good grip to help you stay upright.
We love adidas by Stella McCartney.
14. Snowboard or ski pantsThe most important thing is to make sure they’re waterproof.
You might expect that they all would be, but it’s not always the case.
We love The North Face, Bonfire.
15. HelmetIt’s worth remembering that wearing a helmet reduces your chance of brain injury on the slopes by 60 per cent, so if you’re doing some serious off piste or are a nervous skier, then we say a helmet is an absolute must.
We love Smith, RED.
16. Wrist guardsThese strap around your wrist to help prevent breaks, and in our opinion are vital for any snowboarder, particularly learners.
