Families with a week’s ski holiday in the diary over the coming months will be thrilled to hear that winter has finally arrived in the Alps with heavy snow forecast to fall all this week.
Even more pleasing is our discovery of Ski de Rouge, a little-known outlet for affordable second-hand and discount ski-wear that saves families hundreds of pounds on expensive ski-suits, jackets, salopettes, goggles, snowboots, hats and more from brands including Dare2b and Trespass as well as North Face, Roxy, Spyder, Brugi and Poivre Blanc.
Set up Libby de Rougemon in 1998 and recently joined by her daughter-in-law Caroline de Rougement, Ski de Rouge is a skiwear business for children and adults that operates from Libby’s home in Clapham, South West London (a much less stressful shopping environment than a high street shop!)
Not only an excellent place to snap up bargains on ski clothing and accessories, it offers families an excellent way to re-sell outgrown children’s skiwear (Ski de Rouge takes a 40% commission) and is on our must-visit list this month. To visit, simply call 020 7720 4871 or 07939 051 020 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. www.skiderouge.com
