Ski Essentials: The Ultimate Snow Guide
The driest inhabited continent on Earth with 10 barren deserts spread over our arid land.
That’s why it’s surprising that when you go deep into the nation’s high country, you’ll find another kind of extreme - icy mountains and snow-covered peaks.
The list goes on...
Us Aussies don’t have much experience in an alpine environment, so we’ve put together the ultimate gear guide for those fortunate enough to be on their way to the slopes this year!
The first thing you’re going to need is a super warm pair of gloves. Without a pair of snow-proof gloves it’ll be near impossible to enjoy your time on the slopes. Our top pick is the Squad Ski-Snow gloves by Black Diamond. They’re made of 100% waterproof Gore-Tex and are ultra durable - ready for whatever the mountain throws your way.
Whether you’re a pro or a first-timer, a sturdy pair of goggles are an absolute necessity. Believe it or not, glare can be a real problem up in the snow. The sun reflects brightly on the snow, making it almost impossible to see on super sunny days. Thats where ski goggles come in. Having clear visibility is going to allow you to enjoy your time up on the slopes heaps more.
These Ski Goggles by Trespass provide total protection - coming equipped with double lens, anti fog technology and helmet grips, so they stay secure no matter what!
Complete your look with the Unisex Waterproof Packaway Ski Pants by Trespass. Waterproof pants are a must - the last thing you want is to be stuck in wet, soggy pants all day! Not only are these pants super affordable but they’re also machine washable and space-saving, packing easily into a handy little pouch.
Unless you’re actively trying to get a radical slope scar, a helmet should be high on the priority list. This Matte Black noggin-protector by Trespass is not only going to save your life, but it’s also going to look real good with all your other Trespass gear.
The Furillo Helmet comes with an adjustable fit strap, goggle clip and consists of a high density EPS foam inner with a high impact ABS shell for those high impact crashes.
Last but definitely not least, a snow jacket to tie the outfit together! For the fellas we’ve got a super warm option from Quiksilver. Styled in a camo print, this waterproof ski jacket features Dryflight and Warmflight technology and comes with a jacket-to-pant attachment system to stop snow getting all up in your business.
For the ladies we’ve found a cute stripey number from Trespass. This Indigo coloured jacket is waterproof to 3,000mm, has taped seams, elasticated cuffs and a handy sleeve pocket to keep your lift pass in.
