Hitting the slopes – skiing with the littlies

If you have plans to get away to the slopes this winter with your little ones then you might want to consider kitting out the famille through Ski de Rouge.  Based in Clapham and set up by a mum and her daughter in law, Ski de Rouge is a one stop shop for all apparel, accessories and bits required to keep everyone toasty whilst skiing.  Far cheaper than hitting the high street, they also stock lots of second hand gear which they sell for other mums whose kids have outgrown their kit.  Sadly we are not brave enough to take Little A on the white stuff yet but to be honest Christmas in Cumbria may well call out for a snowsuit!

Also for a great stocking filler or reading fodder pre-trip, take a look at Monty Goes Skiing.  Written by qualified ski instructor Richard Liddle, the book follows the achievements of Monty the Marmot and his new friend Mortimer as they conquer the slopes on their first skiing holiday.  A great read for any first time skier, it also features the sort of ski award structure that any learner would follow at ski school.

All in the detail:

Ski De Rouge is based in Clapham and to book an appointment call 020 7720 4871 or email libbyderouge@hotmail.co.uk
They stock everything from jackets, saloppetttes, children’s snowsuits, thermal undewear, hats, goggles helmets to sunscreen. Also if you have up-do-date but outgrown skiwear they will sell your items for 40% commission.
