Phew, it’s pretty warm out in the Alps at the moment! Spring has well and truly set in and it’s time to enjoy riding slush and extended après sessions on the sun decks.
It’s also time to swap the down jacket for something a bit more lightweight. We’ve just received a message from one of our followers, Colin (pictured), who’s just returned from a week in Meribel, thanking us for giving him a heads up on the Westbeach 60% off sale. He picked up a bargain soft shell jacket (among other items!) and said it was perfect for the spring conditions. They’ve actually been so popular that the Westbeach site has now sold out of them, but we’ve managed to find them at Boardwise with 50% off (reduced from £99.95 to £49.98!), so get yourself one before they sell out too!
I picked up one of the women’s ones in the Westbeach sale and have had great use out of it, both in the Alps and back here in the UK. Westbeach still have the ladies’ version available in their 50% off sale (reduced from £100 to £50), along with loads of other great jackets, hoodies and tee shirts, so grab yourself some bargains to see you through to the end of the season and into the next…!
However, if you’re lucky enough to be heading across the Atlantic for an end of season shred, then you’re going to want to kit yourself out for pow, and lots of it! It’s been absolutely dumping in certain parts of North America, particularly Canada and California. Whistler has had so much snow (they had over 13 feet in March and 124cm in the past 7 days alone!) that they’ve decided to extend the season. So, if you can stretch to the extra air fare, it’s definitely your best bet!Kit yourself out for spring... come snow or shine!,
