You know ski season is fast approaching when ALDI’s famous Snow Gear Special Buys land in your local store. This year, the snowy specials drop on Saturday 18th May and, as usual, they’re expected to sell out quick sticks.

“Our Snow Gear Special Buys event is always very popular, and this year it will be bigger and better than ever with over 50 unique items to appeal to snow and outdoor winter enthusiasts alike,” says Renata Hay, Textiles Buying Director at ALDI Australia.

The 2019 Snow Gear range includes everything from ski and snowboard jackets to kids gear, thermals, goggles and gloves, and it really delivers on quality and value.

A quick look through the range reveals a multitude of new designs and colours in quality fabrics and materials, including DuPont™Sorona® wadding and 100% Australian Merino wool to keep you nice and toasty, sealed seams to keep the damp out, and fabrics to keep the icy winds at bay.

ALDI’s snow gear also features quality zips, snow-repelling skirts and cuffs, handy storage compartments and breathable fabrics. In other words, the kind of quality you would normally pay a premium for.

“Skiing is a great time for families and friends to connect, have fun and learn new skills, but we know how quickly the costs add up when you’re planning a trip to the snow,” says Renata Hay.

“That’s why we’ve worked hard to bring shoppers the best gear at prices that will make a trip to the snow that much more affordable for families.”

So, what’s in the range? Let’s take a look.
