Fresh snow every week, cold temperatures to keep it on the ground and beautiful weather to enjoy the white powder. With the price drop in flights to the Alps due to the recession it is the ideal time to find some cheap deals on skiing holidays. My brother found a killer deal in Zermat, 5 guys, 1 chalet, 7 days of powder paradise, 200 Euros! Ridiculous.
In terms of fashion, you are seeing more and more of the big, flash fashion
brands such asPrada, Versace and D&G getting involved on the slopes. But if you ask me the established winter fashion brands such as Helly Hansen are still the ones to look out for when it comes to looking stylish on the white stuff. While you're checking out their gear you might a
s well have a look at a clip of their "greatest ski movie ever", CLAIM. Very cool.
Another renowned winter sport brand that regularly delivers is Chiemsee. Although their website isn't the quickest to load, they have some nice outfits.
When it comes to skis, you can't get around Atomic and Salomon. These 2 established ski brands always deliver the cutting edge technology along with some very sweet looking gear.
Unfortunately I haven't been able to sort myself out yet and enjoyed the pleasures of this fantastic winter season but I am hoping to for the end of February.
Here are some memories from February 2008 in Grimentz, Switzerland.
Yes, that is Michael Bolton...
Enjoy the snow!!
