The Dark Secret Behind Your Ski Jacket

Soggy pow days, grey rainy mornings, aggressive afternoon slush. What do these three things have in common?  You get wet and very few of us enjoy being damp, let alone wet through. I hate it, it’s uncomfortable, cold and the word moist makes me cringe. It’s why I’ve always invested in a high-quality durable ski jacket.

An update for the One Tree cabin

Gav and I went for a meeting a few nights ago. Well I say meeting, it was more of a jog in the dark. Anyone lurking in the bushes would have seen two guys, jogging along, head torches bobbing, One Tree dog Alfie in tow, discussing what has been happening in the six weeks or so.
