A little trip to the French Alps


Chloe in her Wintertrax!Everyone knows that being in a new job is demanding, there's meeting new people, learning the ropes and digesting all the necessary information. Therefore I am using these reasons to justify to myself that a short ski break was necessary, not indulgent.

Based on that, I've just returned from Morzine in the French Alps from three days of delightful skiing. As a group of friends who love travelling we often discuss the topic of 'travel essentials'. With winter holidays it's usually natural fibre thermals and fleeces, but footwear can often present a dilemma. Because this trip was all last minute and fairly expensive, I've had to put back the purchase of the EMUs I had my eye on (they'd be ideal – water resistant, sheep skin lined and comfortable), so instead I took an old pair of boots of a similar style but the soles are slightly worn.

Wintertrax in the snowObviously it's great in ski resorts when it snows heavily every night, leaving fresh snow for the morning and luckily it did just that. However, our chalet was up a very steep drive that never got cleared and therefore it was constantly coated in snow and ice.

So, whilst the driveway presented my friends with a daily dose of danger, I eased my way up and down without a single slip! How? My Wintertrax! Portable grips for bad weather you can attach to the sole of any footwear of any size.

So I can now say with some certainty that the most useful new comer to my list of winter essentials are my Wintertrax. I simply wouldn't be without them!
