Topic - Winter/Ski kit

NottsRich on 02 Oct 2012
Hi all, I'm after a bit of advice... I'm planning on my first ever ski trip in Feb 2013 and will probably need to get some kit for it. It's to the French Alps somewhere, and I don't really know what I'll need in terms of warmth etc. Also, I'm looking to get more into Scottish winter climbing this season (moving up there at last) and need some cold weather gear for that.

I'm currently on the lookout for a belay jacket (ME Fitzroy, RAB Photon etc) and some decent winter climbing trousers. And gloves. I have enough very basic kit to make do at the moment but would like to be a little less uncomfortable in the cold this winter.

Anyway, my question is, is there an overlap of kit between an Alpine ski adventure and a Scottish winter. It would be great if there is because then I only have to buy one set of kit! Any advice very much appreciated.
