The Anon Greta has everything you could wish for in a helmet and lots more – good venting, inbuilt channels to prevent your goggles from fogging up, detachable ear pads and liner, a removable goggle clip and insane durability. It is also really comfortable on.

5. Women’s Loveland Omni Heat Boots

RRP: €117


Columbia Loveland Boots


These boots are toasty warm and waterproof too making them the ideal choice for any ski resort. We also love the faux fur finish meaning they look as good with a pair of skinny jeans in a bar as they do around town with your ski gear.

6. Barts Janna Beanie

RRP: €29.99


Barts Janna Beanie Hat


A nice beanie is an essential item in your backpack. Firstly it will cover up dreaded helmet hair when you take your helmet off and head for après and secondly it will keep you cosy as you make your way around the resort. Barts do a great range of cosy beanies for both men and women. Made from a soft wool, with a fleece lining around the forehead and ears you can avoid the dreaded itchiness of a traditional woolly hat!

7. Smartwool PhD Ski Socks

RRP: €26


Smartwool Ski Socks


When choosing ski socks you want them to be warm, comfortable and tall – there is nothing worse than a pair of socks that doesn’t manage to come above your boot. The PHD sock from Smartwool ticks all of these essential boxes. They also benefit from the fact that they are made from merino wool making them not only super warm but very breathable too.
