Outfits 11 months ago Our Ski Gear
We’re in heaven spending Christmas week in Aspen.
It’s been years since Grant and I have gotten consecutive ski days on the books. We couldn’t be happier to be spending the holiday at the Leavitt’s ski house with my parent’s and both of our kid’s. This was June’s first year of doing ski school and she loved it. Our little champ went all by herself at only 3.5 years old and stood up on her first try. We were so proud. Baby Hugh has spent most of his time indoors (ha!), but there were a few key items that I’d suggest you take with you if traveling to snow with an infant.
My warmest, most slimming ski jacket is by Frauenschuh. I purchased it a few years ago from Gorsuch in Aspen, so I’m linking to the newest version. I also have the Frauenschuh pants in black which have really stood the test of time and warmth. I love this set! If you’re looking for a more affordable ski jacket, I swear by this Helly Hansen jacket and you guys have raved about it too. I ordered one and did a full try on video on Instagram and fully stand behind the quality and warmth of this ski jacket.
For June, her ski jacket is from Zara and we got her suspender pants from Zara as well. Her base layer sets include a thermal onesie which is just adorable from Amazon plus this top and bottom set from Amazon. Her gloves were pretty perfect because of the long wrist piece that prevents snow from getting in. She had the same hat last year and this year which is really nice and warm. Her snow boots are by Hunter. She insisted on getting a unicorn jumpsuit to ski in and how could I say no to this cute onesie!
While Hugh isn’t ready to hit the slopes quite yet, all we really needed for him was a bunting outfit. This Obermeyer one is absolutely perfect and was recommended by Aspen locals to me. It has little hand and foot covers to keep his limbs warm. I also got the Doona Winter Cover which was perfect for the few dinners we took him to town for. That’s all we really needed for Hugh.
Ski’s & Gear
Grant and I were both overdue for a new set of skis so we spent our days in Aspen demo’ing different types.
I ended up loving the K2 Mindbender 89 Ti Skis. I’m in the 164 size which are a strong size for intermediate to advanced skiers. They’re very forgiving and hold a really strong edge. K2’s were my very first ski that I got over 10 years ago. I guess I’m a K2 gal!
Grant demo’d a few different skis and fell in love with the Fischer 102 skis. He says they are his favorite ski of all time.
Are you heading on any snow trips this year? Where are you off to?
