Fancy new ski outfits

One side effect of going skiing is that it tends to give me an urge to go out and buy a fancy new ski outfit.  This would be a ridiculous thing to do because:

  • there really is nothing wrong with my ski outfit;
  • I don’t fit into most ski gear (it’s designed with a UK size 10 – about a US size 6/8 – in mind);
  • I can’t really justify afford a new ski outfit; and
  • I only go once a year.  This doesn’t make a £500+ outfit a worthwhile investment.

However, I have been looking at Snow and Rock’s website.  One thing I’ve noticed is that ski clothes have got BRIGHTER.  What I would have thought garish ten years ago I now find sensible – when you are in a whiteout or blizzard, being able to pick out your mate’s fluorescent orange trousers is a real bonus.

I like this ski jacket a lot.  It looks super with the purple ski pants.  However, it won’t fit me and I don’t need it.  It would be good for apres ski though.
