Next to ski boots I reckon the most important items of snow gear are your baselayers.
If you don’t know by now, a cotton t-shirt and some footy socks won’t cut it.
You need to go quality, you need to go Merino Wool and you need to go Le Bent.
Just lucky we’ve got a kit including baselayer crew, socks and balaclava to give away this week eh?
It’s usually just outside Canberra on the way back from a two or three day trip to the snow that I ask myself the question: why didn’t I fly?
While I have done more than my share of road trips to both the NSW Snowy Mountains and Victorian Alps from Sydney there is something about flying that sits rather nicely with me.
It’s something to do with not feeling exhausted (there or on the way back), cutting a good chunk out of your travel time and not having to deal with thousands of people in their cars who have exactly the same idea of having a cheeky few days down the snow.
In celebration of such things our good friends at Regional Expresss (REX) have ponied up with four return airfares – two each from Sydney to Cooma and another two from Melbourne to Albury!
With the arrival of spring we’ve got the perfect crossover package this week as the final prize in our three months of giveaways.
A great supportive underlay for late season riding and for many other sports, we have two pairs of CW-X conditioning compression shorts (his and hers) up for grabs.
And after a long spring session on the slopes we also have some insanely comfortable OOFOS impact absorbing thongs to get around the chalet in.
We’ve had some great giveaways over the past two and a bit months but this week we really do have a beauty.
It’s a sweet Tom Tom Bandit action camera – perfect for capturing video and stills at the snow.
It’s a serious unit – but also seriously easy to use. So subscribe this week for you chance to win and read a little more about the Bandit …
This week’s prize is an absolute ripper.
While The Snow Gauge is a skier he dips his lid to the snowboarding brethren out there and has managed to get hold of a TechNine T-Money Tie Dye snowboard through our good friends at Wilderness Sea N’ Ski, Liverpool. The RRP is a lazy $549.
More on the board in a minute but I want to tell you a quick story about why you should be supporting Wilderness Sea N’ Ski if you live in Sydney’s west, south or anywhere else for that matter.
We’ve had the flights, punched out a bit of technical gear over the last month so- now for something completely different.
This week our good friends at Rossignol have provided us with a travel pack that includes a brief case boot bag and wheelie bag.
It’s as simple as subscribing to win at The Snow Gauge.
