Not sure if I am in the correct forum, but my 13 year old daughter is going to Serre Chevalier in feb half term and I have no idea what clothes etc to supply or where to get them.
Lots of the families are 'Skiing families' unlike us. I'm sure I'll get a list a week before, when its too late to budget and plan properly. I would like to get her some of whats needed as Xmas present's.
This may be a one off for her so I want to get it right, but not break the bank. I think they will ski for 4 hours per day for 6 days, but will stay on the mountain for lunch and go out in the evenings
Has anyone else dealt with this dilemma, successfully?
the only stuff i would worry about buying is the clothes she'll need for skiing. off piste i stuck to jeans, jumpers, fleece - regards footwear it was a pair of hiking boots but cat boots or timberland type boots are a good idea as i found the paths icy (so no high heels!). it would be best to check with the school about equipment hire - i went to courchevel 1650 and i hired ski's, boots and poles pretty cheaply. to buy salopettes and a jacket, try asda - good stuff and it won't break the bank! for ski gloves, hat, scarf - decathlon are great for reasonable sportswear (look for the quechua range) and she'll be able to use them if we get the winter thats been threatened. if you don't live near either of these stores - try their websites:
don't forget a good, high factor sunscreen for her face and a pair of sunglasses that cuts out the glare of the snow!
good luck, claire
I didn't know Asda did skiwear so will definately try to take her to one of their shops as really it all needs to be tried on. Should be a good price at Asda. I looked at some other specialist sites from the first thread that Pippy gave me the link too and the prices were scarry.
Gill, Not heard of Aldi, but will try there website, there must be one somewhere near me.
I had forgotten about suncream, I will try to get the new once a day stuff, so that at least if she remembers it once, it should last along time. I know there is a thread on here somewhere about suncreams. Hope you can get them in the winter without having to go to some kind of specialist shop.
