Getting winter ready with Simply Hike (ad)

If, like me you feel the cold, then this might be your least favourite time of year.  My hands and feet get very cold, very quickly so I really do need to prepare for biting wind and freezing temperatures.  I’ve been getting winter ready with Simply Hike and planning ahead for possible future adventures.

The online retailer is the perfect place to prepare for outdoor adventures at any time of year, and especially as the colder weather approaches.  Whether you’re looking for ski goggles for the slopes,  a warm beanie hat for apres-ski, or walking boots for a winter hike, Simply Hike have every base covered.

 

I’ve only been skiing in an indoor snow dome before, but with my niece now living in New Zealand, and sharing stories of her snowboarding adventures, it’s something we might consider trying with my son in the future.

We would certainly need to look at appropriate clothing and accessories for any skiing trip we might make.  For me that would definitely include a thermal base layer as well as a nice warm mid layer jumper.  With my love of all things blue there’s really no surprise that I’d pick blue as the colour for my ski pants and ski jacket, to keep me warm and dry on the slopes.

Knowing that I could get everything in one place for the whole family with Simply Hike is great, and makes any preparation for a future snowy adventure so much easier.  They’ll be no missing my son on the slopes either, whilst I’ll be all in blue, he’ll be sticking with his own signature colour, red, even down to his ski goggles! We’d both be novices on the ski slops, so if you’ve got any advice for what we should be looking for when it comes to ski gear, please let me know.

I’ll be getting winter ready with Simply Hike and ticking off the list of items I’m going to need for our winter adventures.  Whether we’re hitting the slopes like my niece, with ski goggles at the ready.

Or preparing for some apres-ski with some sturdy, warm boots, bobble hat and handy insulated gloves, we’ll certainly be having some fun this winter.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum with an 8 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.
