There’s a reason that “Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!” is a song lyric that pretty much everyone knows – people love snow. Whether you prefer hitting the slopes or hitting the apres-ski bars, there’s something special about snowy weather – and dressing for it.
Warmth is key, but style is never sacrificed when you’re dressing for apres-ski, which is all about layering. Hats, sweaters, coats, and scarves are all mandatory wardrobe pieces, but the one thing that you can’t underestimate the importance of is your boots. We make it easy to blend style and the comfort level required for snow wear with our Henley boots tick all the boxes. Snow and rain resistant with 3M Scotchguard technology, the smooth silhouette of this shoe lets you pull off sleek or edgy styling whilst the thick sole and sheepskin lining keep you warm and dry. The functional front zipper doubles a fashion element, so no one will ever know it also makes them super easy to get on and off when your fingers are frozen! With a soft suede upper finish, the classic style of Henley will be your perfect go to pair of boots for apres-ski.
But don’t just take our word for it! We asked Australian Arial Skier, Gaby Ash, to give us an insight into her life and apres-ski style.
How long have you been an aerial skier?
I started aerial skiing in the middle of 2016, so 5 years now!
What do you love most about it?
I’ve got to say the travel and atmosphere of the sport. Since it’s such a niche sport (winter sport in general in Australia is quite small) it has a strong community of interesting people. A large portion of my training is overseas as, until recently, we didn’t have the facilities in Australia (Brisbane only very recently got a water ramp) We often train in Switzerland or north America for summer training and then ski in the northern hemisphere winter in Europe and North America.
What’s your go to snow style?
For a casual day in the snow I’d usually wear a pair of straight mom style jeans, a turtle- neck jumper, a good pair of snow boots (like the Henley boots), a beanie and either a puffer jacket or snow jacket depending on how cold it is!
What’s your favourite place to go skiing?
Saas Fee, Switzerland. It’s a stunning glacier with a very quaint town at the bottom of the mountain.
