    The Trace Activity Monitor is the ideal gadget for any budding or professional sports enthusiast. The monitor records all stats from action sports such as skiing, snowboarding, surfing etc. Using advanced GPS tracking and sensors, this device will capture every movement, flip and jump you make whilst recording speed, height, distance and rotation so you can look back on the app on your smartphone.

  • Peepsnake Smartphone Scarf
    Trying to access your phone whilst on the slopes can be a bit of a nightmare.

  • Celestron Elements Firecel+
    There's not many things that annoy us more than being out on the slopes for a couple of hours to find our phone battery has died. Keep yours charged up with the Celestron Elements Firecel+. Not only will it charge your phone but it also includes a hand warmer as well as a little torch to help find your way in the dark. The high quality aluminium shell provides the required durability to withstand rough falls and impact.

    This top of the range sports watch has up to 200 hours battery life, something no other GPS watch on the market can compete with. As well as providing you the time, this watch can monitor your heart rate and connects to a host of apps which can map your location, track calories burned and link up to other sports and fitness enthusiasts. 

A Helpful Tip Before Your Trip:
  • Protective Cases: The slopes aren't always the safest place for your gadgets and this can mean that there is always a risk! Most products also do their own range of protective equipment or cases to keep everything safe from moisture and rough landings.
