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).

As I am a skiing veteran I am gonna give you two great tips to follow this winter season. Number one is bend your knees. Number two is colorblocking.

Not to go too fast is usually a good beginner’s tips, but try not to with these glasses. It will be hard.

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.

But if you only buy one thing this winter season, make sure it’s a balaclava.
