What to wear when skiing with the kids

Black ski wear from Poivre Blanc

There are lots of things to remember when booking a skiing holiday and as time gets closer to departure, it is wonderful to know there is a helpful team here at Winternational ready and willing to help you make the most of your time in the mountains 


Leopard print ski wear for the slopes?


Now we're not implying you are going to be roaring or shrieking at your kids, but more that a pattern can be a great friend on the slopes. 

Firstly the pattern stands out against the snow and secondly, you never know when sticky fingers will attack! A pattern can disguise a multitude of sins/things/marks!


Goldbergh Lua Leopard Print Downfilled Ski Jacket

Goldbergh's Roar ski pants are stretchy, cosy and full of great accessories. Plush with pads on the inner ankles to keep your pants as pristine as the day you bought them, insulated to keep you warm on the coldest of days. Pockets at the waist and a strong zipper means they are practical as well as lovely. 

A simple black ski jacket can last you years. The Kaja shown above is four way stretch and made from an almost totally waterproof Schoeller fabric. For the science, head to our Technical Pages where you can learn all about ski wear performance. 

Our love of animal print isn't going away with this strong trend continuing on into winter 20-21! Many brands are featuring it in their ski wear collections for winter 20-21. So thinking about it, this is an investment purchase.
