Clothing for Skiing

Whether you're a first timer or an experienced skier, getting the right clothing is essential for your time on the slopes.

  • Ski jackets - with the latest designs in advanced fabrics women's jackets will be a fashion statement too.  Top brands include Arc'teryx, Burton, Columbia, Mountain harwear & North Face. 
  • Pants or trousers  are an essential part of your winter ski apparel.  Well known labels include Helly Hansen, Roxy & West beach
  • Thermal underwear - layering is the key to staying warm on the slopes.  Vests and tops made from natural fabrics, such as silk, can be light as well as help to keep you warm
  • Fleeces & warm tops - will help to keep the cold out for your apres ski adventures
  • Hats, headwear, gloves & goggles - help keep the warmth in whilst enjoying the snow covered slopes
