Advent Post #4: Keeping warm, whatever the weather! Aldi Ski Wear Review

The start of the ski season is upon us and some of you may be lucky enough to be hitting the slopes either before Christmas or for a well-deserved New Year break.

Aldi have a new range of superb quality ski wear suitable for all levels of skiers at great value prices. We were sent a girl's ski outfit to road test this week ready in time for the range to be launched tomorrow! Sadly, we didn't get to jet off to the Alps, but we did visit a local Christmas market in the cold!

The children's ski trousers and jacket have lots of pockets including a handy ski pass pocket (or a secret, special pocket as my daughter liked to call it!), detachable trouser braces, side leg openings and snow (and cold wind breeze!) protection at the waist, leg and inner cuffs. The outfits are available in sizes 5-14 years and retail at £14.99 which in my opinion is an excellent price for a really good quality skiing coat and trouser set.

But don't be disheartened if you're not planning on embarking on any skiing this winter - this outfit is perfect for family walks in the snow, which I'm sure will hit us at some point. My daughter felt really warm wrapped up for the evening and so now there's no excuse for not wanting to walk the dog with me over the holidays when it's 'too cold'!

We have our sledges at the ready, along with our warm and cosy coats - all we need now is the snow! This is a photo from a couple of years ago... maybe we'll get a white Christmas again this year....

There's many more items in the range from just £1.99 so pop down to your local Aldi from tomorrow when the full range is available in store!

We were sent a two-piece children's ski suit for the purpose of review on behalf of Aldi.
