Last Easter, I embarked on a skiing holiday to Andorra; this was only my third skiing trip. I am now a more experienced skier, so wanted more technical ski wear than I had on previous trips. With this in mind, the Helly Hansen W Whitestar Jacket certainly did not disappoint
Before heading out to the mountains for the first time in years, consider having a ski lesson in the UK first!
I was interested in reviewing the Dainese AWA Gloves because arguably ski gloves are the most important purchase out of all ski wear. It is not a purchase that you want to skimp on as the quality of ski gloves can make the difference with staying out on the mountain or heading back early with cold or wet hands.
This review of the Dainese Flexagon Waistcoat back protector was carried out in Les Menuire, The 3 Valleys. Hexagons are known in science at the building block shape of life. Dainese have cleverly used their versatility for the design of the Flexagon back protector pads embedded in the waistcoat.
Snow.Guide Ski Editor Rob Stewart travels north by rail and road to reach Scotland’s ski slopes during the February half-term week and discovers that a Highland winter holiday is a breath of fresh air and despite the appeal of a cosy cabin, there’s no reason to hang around when there’s snow to be skied.
So, why review the Dainese Hector Wristguard 13? Anyone who has ever had a go at snowboarding will know the virtues of wrist guards. After all, the most common injuries sustained whilst snowboarding are wrist injuries.
Sports Journalist and Ski Instructor Bruce Pope explores the vast terrain of the Monterosa region and experiences heliskiing for the very first time.
I reviewed the Dainese Trailknit Pro-Armour Pants Winter on end of season trips to Les Menuires in the Three Valleys, and Soldeu in Andorra. As a snowboarder, I can certainly see the virtues of having knee protection.
Here’s some information on the car parking facilities, at Heathrow, Gatwick and Birmingham airport that I used last winter when flying out of the UK.
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.
