Events for women and men
The ski brand Kästle invites to the 'Skitest-Tour 2009/10' at 13 prominent locations like Lech/AT, St. Moritz/CH, or Courmayeur Mt. Blanc/IT from 20 Nov 2009 to 7 March 2010 into the Austrian, Swiss, German and Italian Alps. Ski specialists will guide the tours kaestle-ski.com.
The outdoor sports fashion brand Vaude invites to the opening 2010 skiing tours that will be guided by certified skiing instructors and mountain specialists from 15 to 17 January 2010 in the town of Hirschegg located in Kleinwalsertal, Austria.
"The summit ascent kicks off early in the morning: with snow crunching under the skis – the approach is made step by step. One merges into the surrounding nature, with the summit lying before one’s eyes. The rewards are many: amazing views and untouched deep powder slopes. The evening is then spent relaxing after a hard day’s work in the Walserhaus in Hirschegg, listening to extreme mountaineer Stephan Keck’s lecture – this is what the VAUDE Skitouren Opening is all about,"
states Vaude about its event vaude.com.

One part of the body is stressed by the cold weather the most: the face. Good skin care can help against ice and wind. After some years of research, La Roche-Posay has released in 2006 the creme 'Nutritic' that was tested before by the polar explorer Nicolas Vanier in Ojmjakon in Siberia. This place is known for -50 until -67,7 Celsius! Apply the creme in the morning.
Winter wonderland can burn the skin much easier with the help of all the shimmering reflections of the snow diamonds. Advice: protect your skin with 50+ (UVA/UVB) delivered by 'Anthelios XL' from La Roche-Posay. This creme is small enough for your pocket and protects the skin even from the cold weather. For the eyes and the lips you can use easily the stick.
