Trends in après-ski looks, to have fun after a day on the slopes
After a day on the slopes, there is nothing better than relaxing with friends, whether it be to have a drink on a terrace, go shopping or enjoy a good dinner. That’s the spirit of après-ski (which translates from French as “after skiing”), the social activities that ski and snowboard enthusiasts can enjoy after spending the day on the slopes.
The arrival of low temperatures marks the beginning of the long-awaited winter sports season, this year marked by uncertainty. Everything seemed to indicate that it would not be possible to enjoy the snow for Christmas. But in the end, it has not been so.
The Catalan ski resorts open to the public on December 14, yes, with some rules. It will be mandatory to buy the ski passes online to avoid queues, wear a mask on the chair lifts, cable cars, and cable cars, in addition to respecting the safety distance at all times.
The tracks of Sierra Nevada will open next Dec. 18 and Astún’s in the Aragonese Pyrenees will do it on December 23rd. The Madrid community has no restrictions on the opening of its stations, which will start their season when they have enough snow. Instead, France and Andorra will not open their tracks until the month of January.
These are the last après-sky trends, for fun or to take a break after a day in the snow.
Capes and blankets
To relax, there is nothing better than covering yourself with a blanket to watch the snowfall through the window, while enjoying a cup of hot chocolate.
