- Snowboarding in Val Gardena
Aesthetically, the Chatham Maguire II brown boots are rich in colour and look sophisticated. They are good for walking around a ski resort in snow during the day, but look great when wearing out to the bars in the evening. In other words, the brown boots look more ‘out, out’ than the tan suede ones do.
I was interested in reviewing the Forcefield Slam 1 protection shorts as I reviewed the original Forcefield Slam impact shorts last season and was mightily impressed. So what is different about the Forcefield Slam 1 shorts apart from a new royal blue colour? Read the review and find out why these are even better!
Designed for those harsh winter days, this is a review of the DC Peary winter boots. When travelling on a ski or snowboard trip, footwear to wear around the resort is hardly ever taken into consideration. You need boots that will keep you warm, comfortable and dry, as well as look good.
The Helly Hansen Balder Glove is as quality as it looks. The merino wool kept my hands warm at all times and the soft goat skin leather is beautiful to touch.
The last time I visited Val Gardena was during the summer where flowers of all colours decorated the lush green grass that carpeted much of the landscape. This time I was returning during the peak of the ski season and the Dolomites were covered with a thick snow blanket.
It is funny, I have never considered snowboarding in Innsbruck before. I have been to Innsbruck many times but only passing through and never making it past the airport. I have always considered Innsbruck merely as a gateway to Austrian resorts such as Ischgl. How wrong I have been!
Snowboard editor Mark Barber spent a few days at the Elevation Alps self-catering luxury Chalet Kapa in Morzine. Read the review…
Snow.Guide decided to test a range of Dainese ski clothing – the Italian company, founded in 1972 is known for its motorsports protective clothing.
Their clothing range is now extensive, with a focus on high end, technical gear that looks stylish and smart.
Decathlon Wed’ze ski socks are only £3.99! But how good are they? In this review Mark Barber finds out. Budget ski socks used to mean ill-fitting tube socks that were neither comfortable or practical. I have also had some truly awful but expensive ski socks in the past with the heels badly designed and itchy.
New for 2018, the Panda Optics Cobalt goggles have an 8 way magnetic lens changing system and is claimed to be the fastest and most robust changing system on the market. These are big claims and I was eager to carry out the review.
