Dressing for the 2019 Snow Season & Your Ski Tour

DRESSING FOR THE 2019 SNOW SEASON & YOUR SKIING/SNOWBOARDING TOUR If you’re planning a New Zealand ski or snowboard holiday, it’s important to stay warm, dry and comfortable for the duration of your time on the slopes.  To get you ready for your next snow adventure, we’ve got your packing list sorted (together with our friends at Kathmandu) to ensure you’re ready for the slopes this winter! LEARNING HOW TO LAYER YOUR CLOTHING FOR THE SNOW IS KEY As you’ll be active for most of the day, you need to ensure that your clothing layers work to keep you warm as well as wick away any sweat or moisture so that you can focus on your skiing/boarding and having fun. START WITH THE BASE LAYER FOR WARMTH Choose a thin, wicking, thermal or merino wool-blend that fits well and won’t rise up or feel baggy. For the top you will want a long sleeved top that fits close across your chest. The wonderful thing about merino blend clothing is that it retains 80% of its heating properties when wet, which will help regulate your body temperature, it will wick sweat away and its natural antimicrobial properties eliminates odour.

New Zealand vs Australia – How Do You Choose?

New Zealand vs Australia – How Do You Choose? You’ve narrowed it down to either Australia or New Zealand for your next holiday adventure, but you can only get three weeks off work and have a limited budget – so how do you choose? That’s easy to answer: use this guide to decide which is best for you! Cities or Scenery? Yes, yes – we know Australia and New Zealand both have cities. And they both technically have scenery too. But the countries are very (very) different. Australia (cities) If you’re looking for pumping nightlife and streets lined with hipster-laden bars, we’d probably nudge you more towards Australia. Melbourne and Sydney are world famous for their big-night-on-the-town activities. On the scenery front, Australia has some truly impressive and vast landscapes.

New Zealand (scenery) Whilst New Zealand has some solid nightlife options, what’s more impressive is it being home to the world’s largest dark sky reserve. Here, light pollution is so low you can see unrivaled views of the Milky […]
