First Season Survival
Updated: Nov 19, 2018
Your first time can be a little daunting. You don’t want to go in too hard, get it all wrong and have to make a premature exit. So we scoured Val d’Isère for some wizened old-timers who gave us some snippets of wisdom for the new kids in the mountains.
Previous esteemed editor of The Echo. Now SkiBro’s man with a cam, Kene E-O:
“Not to be confused with a beer jacket, which is the insulating layer of booze that will keep you feeling warm and fuzzy on the way home from a night out when it's -15°C, a pub jacket is a cheap jacket that you don't mind getting lost or stolen when you're on a bender. It never has your ski pass, keys, phone, wallet, etc in it.”
For some wavy 80s outerwear, check out the Shop page on The Echo website (www.valecho.co.uk/shop), where some snazzy vintage ski jackets will be available to purchase. Particularly suitable for mono-skiing.
