There is something magical about this time a year. And I am not talking about the upcoming holiday season or the fact that one might get something off that list one sent to Santa (also known as mom in my case). No, I am talking about winter and the very specific activity that comes with that and only that. Skiing.
I love skiing not only because I love being in nature but because of everything that comes with it. The cold crispy weather, the bright snow, the good parties (pre-pandemic, that is*), the aperol spritzes and the hot chocolate. I could go on forever. But there is one thing I like almost as much as the actual skiing (oh well) and that is the equipment. To get super nerdy about ski boots, goggles and overalls is a lifestyle I easily adapt to. The Gore-Tex part of the ski industry isn’t really my scene though, I am totally stuck in nostalgia village. Nothing beats the 80s in Verbier or Chamonix, am I not right? (the questionmark is accurately placed since I was born mid 90s).

If you are looking to spice your ski outfit up a bit, add a silk scarf. If can work double shifts as guardian of the neck-area when the winter winds blow hard and saviour of even the worst cases of helmet hair situations.
