How to make your ski day perfect

Are you soon heading out skiing? But you don’t want to feel cold?

Many people invest a lot into the top layer ski clothes, for example gore-tex ski pants and a jacket with several features. But they forget to think about the inner layers, those that are closest to the skin. How about you?

One thing which is key to staying warm and comfortable is having natural materials like merinowool or silk against the skin. During a ski day, you may sometimes develop a sweat, and at other times you may be standing and waiting. If you’re wearing cotton, you will simply stay wet and feel cold very soon. Synthetics are instead less breathable and tend to make you sweat.

The answer is natural materials like merinowool and silk, which keep you warm even when they are humid. They are breathable and optimally regulate the body temperature. We have gathered below our favorite items, which will ensure you will have a perfect ski day.

Go outside and have fun!!! Happy smiles and rosy cheeks, as well as better health and stronger immunity will be your reward!
