Best Gifts for Skiers

 

Do you have a loved one who is mad about skiing?

Would you like to buy him or her a ski related gift but not sure what to buy?

Do you worry if it’s the right make or model, or really something they will use?

Here is a handy list of super cool, super useful gift ideas that every skier would love to own.

Dynastar Cham 2.0 87

All skiers need skis so let’s start here.

There are different skis for different snow conditions however it’s not possible to take three pairs of skis on holiday so we recommend an all mountain ski that works brilliantly on all terrain.

The latest Dynastar Cham is a great all mountain ski that will tackle all snow conditions with ease. It’s flexible enough for good intermediate skiers however stiff and responsive enough for advanced skiers.

 

GoPro Hero 4

As you probably know, a GoPro is a small waterproof video camera that has been designed for extreme sports. It is unquestionably the best video camera on the market and comes with various attachments to fix onto your helmet, body or ski pole. It’s a great way for people to take video of their friends, themselves and epic ski adventures.

Avalanche backpack

If you are buying a present for someone who is an advanced skier and ventures off-piste then we highly recommend an avalanche backpack. This is a normal looking rucksack however it has a safety cord that you can pull if you are in / near an avalanche; this detonates an airbag which pops out of the rucksack and will help keep you on the surface of the avalanche.

Scott has a really stylish range with the latest airbag technology, plenty of storage space, goggle pockets and helmet carry systems.

 

Ski Socks

Almost all skiers have received ski socks for Christmas, but (not wanting to sound ungrateful) it’s better to get some decent ones rather than a basic tube sock featuring a reindeer on skis.

Ski socks are a great present but it’s worth spending a bit extra and getting a decent pair such as the Salomon Compression sock which is shaped to foot, breathable and has padding in all the right places.

 

Goggles

A good pair of ski goggles is essential and most skiers would love to own a pair of POC goggles. POC is the fastest growing brand in the ski industry over the past few year, it’s super cool and will probably catch up with Oakley as the most popular goggle brand.

 

Helmet

We recommend the Julbo Symbios Connect; this is a high end helmet with integrated visor, air venting and magnetic closing system however what makes this helmet so cool is the built-in Bluetooth technology that enables you to make phone calls and listen to music with the integrated speakers and microphone.

 

Ski lessons

Not all great presents need to be tangible and all skiers, no matter how good they are, would benefit from a lesson or off-piste guide.

A ski lesson makes a great present and will make a big difference to someone’s ski holiday. If you are skiing in Chatel we recommend Blue Chilli who have a brilliant team of young, dynamic ski instructors who offer private lessons for skiers of all abilities.

Absolutely fantastic week. The chalet was gorgeous, spacious and lovely bedrooms. Paddy was a great host. The skis were delivered to the chalet which saved so much hassle as were the ski passes. Paddy booked our restaurants before we arrived. Cannot recommend more highly!! We will come back.

Wonderful place! Large well-equipped kitchen. The chalet and rooms were bigger than appeared on website. Also a heated room for ski gear. Nine & Tenne went above and beyond to arrange all for our stay.

What a fabulous week. We've been skiing for around 40 years and Chalet Nine & Tenne was without doubt the finest place that we have stayed in. We have been coming to Chatel for around twenty years and have known Paddy and Jo for many of these - why, oh why haven't we stayed in one of their chalets before? Not only was the accommodation fantastic but, so too, was every other aspect. Paddy runs a superb business and the in-house team of Benji, Jake and Liz could not do enough for us. The food was far better than any experienced before on a ski holiday thanks to Benji's chef's skills; Liz was only too willing to take us/pick us up at any time; and Jake was the perfect house-keeper. A huge thank you to one and all.

We enjoyed a fantastic week at Nine & Tenne's Chalet Savoyard. The chalet was extremely well appointed and housed all 12 of us across 3 generations very comfortably. Paddy could not have been more accommodating and helpful (including installing a fully decorated Christmas tree!) and we can highly recommend the meal delivery service that Paddy organised for us. The chalet is in a great location, a 10 minute walk into the centre of the village and a short drive from all the skiing locations. Many thanks to Paddy and the owner for a great week.

What a fantastic week, the owners and staff at Nine and Tenne were outstanding. The food, transportation, chalet and hospitality far exceeded our expectations. We were fortunate to drop on a week that blessed us with blue skies and great skiing conditions which made the whole experience even better. Chatel is a lovely little town that has everything you need and is easily accessed with the chauffer service that Nine and Tenne provide. The skiing has more than enough slopes to cater for beginners right through to experts. If you book with Nine and Tenne I am sure you will not be disappointed. TOP CLASS!
