Passion; a strong and barely controllable emotion

There are a lot of businesses created out of a passion for skiing or snowboarding, small brands producing quality technical outer wear and under wear.

Here are some quality brands that will have you looking cool while staying warm and dry on the hill this winter.  Brands born out of a love of the mountains and the snow, people following their passion and creating a life doing what they love.  These are my favourites.

Anakie Outerwear



Bright and colourful women’s specific Australian outerwear company providing style on the slopes, born from a love of snowboarding.  I love these denim look women’s pants.  Check out my blog on Anakie here

I love the rustic mountain style of Homely to Handsome’s hand crocheted beanies and scarves.  Stylish beanies made to suit the outdoorsy type who want both fashion and function.  Growing up in Canada, Holly now lives in Sydney.

These are all great quality products from small brands, either individuals or small teams making a living doing what they love.  Show them some love and support their brands and passions and look great on the hill this winter.
