Skiing is a popular winter sport, and between Christmas to as far as April is the best time to hit the slopes. Whether you're a beginner on the snow and want to work on your snowplough, a more seasoned skier hitting the black runs, or just there for the fondue feasts and Après Ski, having insulating, durable yet comfortable ski wear is a must.

Columbia is a popular sportswear brand you can rely on to kit you out for all sports; from winter sports to summer activities, skiing and snowboarding to hiking. When hitting the slopes, or tucking into the fondue and drinks at Après Ski, a thermal jacket is a must, plus you can also wear it on its own when the winter chill really hits.
Our top pick: Women's Abbott Peak Insulated Ski Jacket, £147, Columbia
Our top pick: Avalanche High-Waisted Slim Fit Ski Pants, £69.99, Mountain Warehouse
Heading outdoors on a ski trip, winter walk, or other outdoor activity, Mountain Warehouse has all the essentials you could desire, for men, women and children, so you can provide the whole family with the must-have gear.
While some prefer salopettes in the style of dungarees to stay up when you’re skiing or snowboarding, others prefer pants, and our favourite are these with their high waisted slim fit design.
Marks & Spencer
Our top pick: Heatgen Plus™ Fleece Thermal Turtle Neck Top, £16, M&S
M&S may not be the first retailer you think of when getting all your equipment for your next ski session, however, under layers and thermals are an essential for any winter sport, which M&S do exceedingly well.
M&S’ Heatgen garments are top quality garments that deliver on keeping you warm, and also looking stylish, so nobody even knows you’re wearing thermals. For those who want extra warmth, Heatgen+ is another M&S technology that guarantees extra warmth - and we can vouch for it keeping you warm in a New York snowstorm.
The North Face
Our top pick: Women's Cirque Down Jacket, £390, The North Face
The North Face takes pride in creating insulating, practical and durable outerwear, for all sports, activities and needs, which is why it is our go-to for almost everything.
While the Nuptse puffer jacket is all the craze and is ideal to protect against the elements, The North Face also has a designated ski and snowboard section worth shopping.
Our top pick: Women's Warm Waterproof Snow Hiking Boots, £34.99, Decathlon
From under layers, leggings, trousers, ski jackets, and everything in between.
One essential skiers will find particularly useful on their next ski trip is a pair of snow boots, so you can get from A to B, or any location, before putting your ski boots and skis on.
Our top pick: All Prepped Colorblock Bibb, £398, Free People
Who knew Free People did skiwear? They do, and it’s so stylish but also comfortable and practical.
Our top pick: Matterhorn Ski Parka, £295, Sweaty Betty
Sweaty Betty is best known for stylish gym gear, signature Super Sculpt leggings, yoga accessories, and much more. However, they do also stock the must-haves for skiers too. A ski jacket is a basic essential when hitting the slopes, but also one you can wear when you are back home and the cold weather truly hits.
Our top pick: Columbia Women's Bindo II Insulated Jacket, £172.50, Cotswold Outdoors
Cotswold Outdoors caters for every customer’s needs, and they have a vast selection of ski and snowboarding buys to suit all ages.
Plus, the mindful shopper out there will be pleased to know they also have sustainable skiwear too.
Our top pick: Snow Luxe Puffer Jacket, £249.99, Superdry
Superdry is another fan favourite for those shopping for long-lasting jackets, sportswear, basics, as well as jeans, and other fashionable garments.
Our top pick: Leather shearling-trimmed snow boots, £391, MyTheresa
Looking for stylish yet practical snow boots? You need to check out INUIKII. Designer Cinzia Maag launched the brand in 2012, and the name derives from the Eskimo-Aleut language, meaning 'beauty' and 'cold.'
We can't get enough of these bold boots. They're lined with sumptuous shearling, so your feet will stay toasty, too.
Our top pick: Clear xE2 goggles, £112.60, Messy Weekend
Snow goggles are a must on the slopes and they don't come more stylish than this stunning pair from Messy Weekend. We love the funky cylindrical shape and frameless design, and more importantly, the Dual-layered Grade 1 optical-quality polycarbonate lens, that will give you the best vision when you're snow ploughing through the runs.
