Just 45 minutes from our offices in Southern Germany, the mountainous hinterland to the south of Munich offers a quieter alternative for the skier in search of untracked powder.
The Spitzingsee region, with it’s smattering of mostly private huts and modest, accessible peaks between 1500 and 2000m is a popular destination amongst hikers but in the depths of winter when the alpine meadows lie deep under a layer of snow, it is the perfect playground for an easy day tour.
A Soft Shell offers a lot of advantages over a waterproof Hard Shell in most weathers: they are softer, more comfortable to wear, and more breathable. In all but sustained horrid weather it’s what we would rather wear.
Most of the time you hope not to be forced to wear a waterproof, but when you need to wear one it’s vital you have one with you that you want to wear.
Legwear choice for skiing depends a lot on the conditions. For warm spring days Soft Shell is definitely the best choice, but if it’s really cold and windy then Hard Shell trousers are the better option. We make a big range of ski legwear for everything from midwinter blitzes to steady spring tours.
