Juliette is ultra-excited at the moment because, on top of the usual Christmas build-up, she's extra excited about going on a class skiing trip at the end of January. Along with two teachers and two classes from her school, they'll be heading off for a whopping eleven days, staying in a big chalet in the Alps which has classrooms for their lessons every morning and a chairlift up to the ski slopes for 2 hours skiing every afternoon. We were slightly bemused by the enormous list of equipment that we have to provide though, so it was great timing for Aldi to get in touch with news of their ski gear specialbuys which hit the stores today.
They sent us through a lovely selection of items to help keep her snuggly and warm in the snow, as well as a funky red ski helmet because, as they said, nobody likes sweaty rental headgear and it’s important to wear one for safety!
The Ski/Snowboard Helmets are available for adults (£19.99) and children (£16.99). They feature a washable lining, goggle holders and a removable rear light.
At Aldi, skiers can be completely kitted out for just £59.94 - this phenomenal deal includes Adult’s Ski Trousers (£16.99) and Jackets (£19.99), Ski and Sports Base Layers (£8.99), Ski tops (£4.99) and Ski Socks (£3.99) and Technical Ski Gloves (£4.99). Children are also catered for at an incredible price with Children’s Ski Wear (£16.99) and a wide variety of socks, gloves and accessories.
For the more discerning skier, there’s the Aldi Pro range, which features an improved specification, including a 10,000mm waterproof rating, a fully breathable membrane in excess of 10,000 gr/m2/24h and a 100% windproof (wind resistance zero L/m2/sec), to rival big-brand names but without the big-brand price tag. The Pro range covers everything from a Pro Jacket (£34.99) and Salopettes (£29.99) to a Pro Padded Jacket (£19.99) and a Winter Sports Compression Base Layer (£8.99). Thrill seekers and seasonaires alike can find everything they need at Aldi, including Leather Faced Ski Gloves (£19.99) with the quality they demand without breaking the bank.
This year, Aldi is also introducing an amazing value Action Camcorder (£29.99) which will be available in stores nationwide from 3rd December. Featuring a 135° wide-angle lens, an impressive 720p resolution and recording at 30 frames per second, you’ll be able to re-live all of your adrenaline fuelled antics on and off the slopes with this fantastic device.
Check out what else is in store below but be quick because, as with all Specialbuys, once they’re gone, they’re gone. Aldi’s Ski range is in store from 3rd December and available while stocks last.
