Ready, steady… SNOW!

That’s right, ALDI’s iconic Snow Gear Special Buys is sliding back into the middle aisles from Saturday 18 May! With high-quality items for the slopes (or wherever shoppers want to wear them) starting from just $4.99 and nothing over $100, prices are low enough to fit out a family of four for under $750 – meaning the snow obsessed can focus on chasing that pow pow instead of affordable prices on snow gear!

Rodney Balech, Group Director for National Buying at ALDI says: “The Snow Gear Special Buys range is back and better than ever this year. Whether you’re planning a solo ski trip or a friendly snowball fight with the family, ALDI’s Snow Gear range offers everything you need at an affordable price, without compromising on quality.”

“With families looking for ways to enjoy holidays on a budget, we’re particularly excited that our unbeatable prices and one-stop-shop means customers can head in-store and pick up snow gear essentials from as little as $4.99. We’re the also introducing more unisex options for kids, making it easier than ever for parents to hand down outfits to save on buying new sizes year after year.”

“While price and affordability are on everyone’s minds this year, we have also ensured that every item in our range meets the highest benchmarks. We work with our partners across the globe to create high quality products across every layer, and now in more sizes than ever. Each item is embedded with innovative technology that is built to provide top-of-the-line durability and comfort in all conditions, so you can feel assured that both you and your budget will feel great carving down the slopes in this year’s range.”

Why ALDI’s Snow Gear is a step above the rest
A snow holiday can be expensive, so this year ALDI has made it even easier for everyone heading to the slopes to gear up without snow ploughing through the budget – including over 70 items that cover everything needed on the slopes to après hour.

Families can fit out two adults and two kids including all outerwear, gloves, goggles, helmets, thermoboots and kids knitted accessories for less than $750. Shoppers looking for just the essentials, including jacket, pants, gloves, beanie and socks, can kit out an adult for less than $150 and get the kids ready for less than $100!

When it comes to quality, ALDI has turned the theoretical thermostat up a notch with this year’s range. The jackets are insulated with Du Pont Sorona® fill to help fight off the cold, and outer layers across the range are not only wind resistant, but breathable too. The main outerwear range is also 12,000mm waterproof while the premium range is 20,000mm, meaning it’s easy to stay warm and dry all day – whether bombing it down black runs or learning how to get back up!

That’s not all though not only does the range feel great, but ALDI’s 2024 Snow Gear also looks ice cool. Designed in partnership with experts from Europe, the range takes inspiration from the best Ski and Snowboard trends worldwide. The secure multi use pockets are big enough to fit everything from ski passes to the largest smartphones, so customers don’t have to worry about picking up a matching bumbag.

What’s fresh for the 2024 season
With a new season comes both fresh new looks, and even fresher new prices! This year, ALDI’s premium range is even more affordable, with top-of-the-range items now less than $100! This includes our Adult’s Premium Ski Jackets ($99.99) and Ski Pants ($79.99), which are made to be highly waterproof to 20,000mm, breathable to 20,000g, and have fully taped seams to ensure ultimate performance, comfort and durability. They also happen to look gnarly too. The Premium Ski jacket has been developed to have more sustainable features than ever before with the premium jacket and pants set both made using 100 per cent recycled outer polyester and plastic zips as well as 75 per cent recycled fiber padding.

For families with young ones, the Toddler’s Snow Suit ($34.99) will keep the little ones warm and protected, with unisex outfits and mix and match styles that can be easily handed down among siblings. There’s even “mini-me” designs that include matching sets for adults and kids for the ultimate winter getaway photo opp! The sizing for teens and young adults has also been extended to give more options for those growing up, and a new Adult’s Quarter Zip Snow Hoodie ($49.99) has been added to the range for less than $50,

Rodney’s top recommendations for 2024

This highly waterproof and breathable anorak is perfect for newcomers to the snow looking to set themselves up with the right gear without having to blow the budget. With fully taped seams, wind resistance, an external ski pass pocket, and zipped side ventilation, this jacket will keep you warm and comfortable in all conditions.”
  • Enjoy our most innovative and premium items, without the premium prices Rodney says: “For anyone looking for the highest possible quality snow gear, look no further than our Adult’s Premium Ski Jackets ($99.99) and Ski Pants ($79.99). Not only is this range waterproof to 20,000mm, breathable to 20,000g and wind-resistant but with prices under $100 you can enjoy the top-of-the-line in comfort, performance and savings!”
  • Keep the little ones warm and cosy – and why not all dress to match! Rodney says, “For families looking to start the kids young and enjoy a trip away to the slopes together, our new Toddler’s Snow Suit ($34.99) is perfect. The hood and warm upper body fleece lining, along with waterproof, breathability and wind resistance, means your little ones will be cosy, safe and absolutely adorable. For families with slightly older kids who are keen to hit the slopes in style, we have matching “mini-me” sets available for adults ($109.98) and Children ($69.98).”
  • Layer up with natural Merino wool to stay warm on even the coldest days Rodney says, “While your outer layers are crucial, the base and mid layers are just as important and often overlooked by first time visitors to the snow. For the best in both warmth and comfort, our Merino Thermal Underwear (Adults – $34.99, Children – $24.99) is the perfect base while also being comfortable on your skin. For both the sub-zero days and when it’s warm and you need to remove your jacket, we also have a wider range of high quality Marino wool items, from Lightweight add-ons like a Beanie, Balaclava, Neckwarmer, Headband and Glove Liners ($11.99 each), as well as Adult Tanks or Camisoles ($19.99) to warmer mid-layers like our Adult Quarter Zip Top ($39.99) and Adult Sweat Jacket, Hoodie or Pants ($39.99). All perfect for the ski trip and beyond.”
