If your ski accessories have seen several trips to the snow or you haven’t been skiing before, this guide will serve you well by helping you discover the best products on the market.

Advanced Abom Goggles

Clear vision is not only essential for your safety but also ensures you make the most of the glorious views as you whizz down the slopes. If you’re looking for the best ski goggles money can buy, try the Abom One Goggles which are considered some of the most advanced.

The goggles aim to clear the fog that builds up in the vision with just a click of a button, utilising their latest design advancement, known as the Abom Klair Technology. The goggle features a transparent film that sits between two Polycarbonate lens and works to regulate the temperature inside the goggles and works to dissipate any fog build-up. And with two modes: Active and Boost, you can dispel even the most stubborn fog to ensure enjoyment and safety.

Sometimes travelling with your skis can be a little stressful because they are big and awkward to carry. However, with the Thule Roundtrip Ski Roller Bag is a convenient and versatile way to transport your skis from home to resort. The bag has multiple carrying options, including wheels, so getting through the airport is a breeze.

Able to carry two pairs of skis at 192cm long, you and your partner can easily pack your skis into the same bag. And with the internal and external compression straps and ski dividers, you can rest assured that your precious skis will travel safely to our holiday retreat.

Hotronic Feet Warmers

No one likes to get cold feet, especially when skiing, so get your toes toasty with the Hotronic’s Footwarmer S4 Custom. This nifty device keeps your ski boots the perfect temperature from the moment you put them on in the morning up until the time you kick them off.

For 2019, the Hotronic Footwarmer has been updated with rechargeable battery packs that will allow for eighteen consecutive heating hours (when used on the lowest setting), so they’ll last more than enough throughout the day. It’s not just warmth that these little babies offer, but they also help to improve your balance and therefore better your performance.

Go Pro Hero 7

Immortalise your memories with the latest and toughest GoPro camera. With several attachments, you can mount the camera to your helmet to capture all the views you may miss on your way down the mountainside.

Once wrapped up nice and warm in the chalet, edit your footage down into a cool holiday video everyone at home will be jealous to watch.
