Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Cheers @albob, not a huge selection at the moment. No helmets, Baselayers etc. I assume these will all get added later.

Not to diss anyone buying on a budget, but you can get far better quality stuff for extremely low cost on eBay.

@Roguevfr, it's different strokes for different folks I guess - the kids love the baselayers, to a point that they wear them as pjs most of the year! Prefer Decathlon for a lot of value based purchases for the kids.

@Roguevfr, I think the Aldi merino baselayers are better quality than other brands that I have used.

For kids baselayers and trousers, I find the Aldi stuff brilliant value - we usually get 2 seasons out of them size wise and then hand them down so they last well.

Youngest got set of planks bibs & he is asking if he can get new Aldi trousers as well as he loves his current ones (bit small now). So ignore the price, they are quality stuff

Did Aldi do merino silk baselayers previously or do you mean socks ?

I have seen the merino silk socks in Innsbruck family stores they have all sorts in Austria ..

Some Aldi merino base layers do seem better in certain years .

 You know it makes sense.

@Tirol 164, They used to do both . . .I have 8 pairs of the merino silk socks that are still going strong and are pretty much Falke copies. . .change them daily for ultimate sockage indulgence

In previous years Aldi has had two ski gear events. The first had basic gear and the more luxury items came later on. May, or may not be the same this time.

Yep, two pairs of kids goggles, salopettes for 5 year old, snow boots for 7 year old, ski pants for 45 year old. 57 quid for the lot I think..will see, but look like they'll be fine for our needs!

I didn't bother as they were queueing for the car park in our local one. Like @Belch, said above, I'm a bit disappointed in the quality of socks as I too have the merino and silk ones. Hoping there may be higher quality to come. If the merino and silk socks make a re-appearance I would buy as many as I could!!!

I noticed plenty of merino/silk socks were in Innsbruck a few years ago unlike in the uk
Was walking around the stores in town both expensive and otherwise... they had a far greater range than uk .
