Winter is here. And with it comes the start of ski season.
To make the cold weather more bearable, I’ve recruited a new ski bunny to join me on the slopes and she asked me to make her a list of what to wear on and off the hill when we go away for a week in March.
The thing with skiing in the Maritimes is the weather is very unpredictable and usually pretty wet. Our winters are windy with high precipitation and it gets cold! Not a dry cold like other parts of Canada but an under-your-skin damp cold.
Fun right? Not always, which is why if you’re going to face this climate, you best be prepared and bundle up.
I’ve had the same ski jacket for more than ten years so I’m on the hunt for something which will keep me warm but look good and I have been eying the winter jackets from Fjällräven Canada.
I love wearing a light padded jacket with a shell on the slopes. The shell keeps the wind away and I stay toasty with the padded jacket underneath. If the sun comes out and the day warms up, off goes a layer! The Iceland Anorak is a great choice for every day wear – plus, I love the side zips and the big front pocket.
So with my new jackets picked, here are my On The Slopes and Après Ski essentials for our ski holiday:
I have Christmas on my mind… specifically cute matching pajamas.
My niece and nephew are coming up from New York for the holidays and we love dressing the kids in matching PJs. There is nothing more adorable than letting them each open ONE present on Christmas eve and then watching their disappointment when it’s just PJs. We take some photos and send them to bed.
