Snow has a unique and magical charm, specially during the holidays. One of the best ways to help achieve a reinvigorating rest can be found in the peace and quiet of the mountains. The silent mountain tops, white snow everywhere, and good skiing equipment are all you need to get going. Whether you prefer skiing or snowboarding (or even staying at base camp drinking hot chocolate!), we have put together a list of products that will help you enjoy this special experience. All of these products can be found at our duty free stores.
Sunglasses: Latch from Oakley
Some inexperienced skiers fail to adequately protect their eyes from snow glare. Remember that not all sunglasses are designed to provide full protection for your eyes in this particular environment. The Oakley Latch Sunglasses line perfectly combine state of the art design with solutions for the specific needs of this sport. A creative collaboration with the world of skateboarding, this design is shaped with a classic keyhole bridge and the curves of rounded lens orbitals, engineered with the convenience of an interior kick-up feature that lets you clip it to your shirt. Oakley Latch Sunglasses feature HDO technology which optimises accurate vision and helps prevent visual fatigue. Additionally, they offer UV protection that blocks 100% of the most harmful sun rays.
Sun blocker Ultrasun Face 50+
Despite the fact that you are likely to be covered from head to toe, it is vitally important to wear Sun Protection when out and about on the slopes. Wrists, face, neck, and any other parts of your body that are uncovered by clothing and exposed to the sun are at risk. Ultrasun Face Very High SPF 50+ offers maximum protection. It contains antioxidants and Ectoin, making it Ideal for high-altitude conditions. Ultrasun’s Anti-Ageing Formula is free from oils, emulsifiers and perfume, reducing the risk of allergy, and making it especially suitable for sensitive skin. Ultrasun products are non-oily, water resistant, and easy to use. A must-have for travellers in the snow and at the beach alike.
Drinks: Johnnie Walker Blue Label The Cask Edition
This is a whisky to be enjoyed on special occasions such as your next holiday. Blue Label is Johnnie Walker’s most exceptional experience among their many diverse blends. Of the 7 million casks available to the Master Blender, only about 1 in 1000 are deemed to hold the exceptional flavours and properties sought for Johnnie Walker Blue Label. Taste the intense vanilla, oak, smoke, and even Dundee Cake notes blending in your mouth. We recommend serving on the rocks to avoid diluting these strong flavours. You can also serve with a separate measure of chilled water and drink it before your measure of Blue Label. This way, your palate opens up in readiness to taste the multitude of flavours hidden in this unique Walker Edition. This whisky is the definitive closing of an unforgettable experience. It should be your first purchase when arriving at one of our duty free stores.
Superdry Black Silicone Watch Dial Digital
If you are a competitive skier trying to improve your timings, it is essential to have a good watch. Superdry’s Sport Line combines precise functionality with an urban and sleek design. The Radar Watch Timepiece features a 12 digit LCD screen with daily alarm, hourly signal and snooze functions. This model’s electroluminescence back light is perfect for the strong natural light conditions you will find on the slopes. Additionally, it features 5 ATM technology, making this watch ideal for rain and snow conditions. Every model bought at our duty free stores comes with a global 2 year warranty.
Skincare: Lancôme Hydra Zen Neurocalm Day Cream SPF15 50ml
After a few days exposed to the extreme weather conditions encountered in the mountains, you will need to rehydrate your skin. We recommend Lancome’s Hydra Zen Neurocalm SPF15. Enriched with naturally-derived plant extracts, Hydra Zen relieves skin from environmental skin aggravation. Easily absorbed, this soothing face moisturiser can be used daily for long lasting hydration.
