Skiing in Organic Cotton
Being based in Munich has its perks. You can just throw your skis into the car and drive south to the Austrian Alps in less than two hours. Which is exactly what we did this weekend. We also took one of our favorite sustainable brands with us.
During the day, we went skiing together and, in the evenings, we snuggled up indoors.
VATTER's garments are the true definition of sustainable fashion. They are right to say that it is not enough to merely use organic cotton for their products - the entire production cycle must be sustainable. This goes all the way to 100% recycled packaging material and carbon neutral shipping with DHL GoGreen.
This is Tender Ted in XL for men. Worn as an undergarment with regular ski wear on the slopes. The strong fabric provided warmth on cold days in the mountains.
This is Cozy Carla in XS for women. Worn as a pyjama shirt thanks to the soft, comfortable fabric. Also available in white.
Destination Quick Tips: Kitzbühel - Austrian Alps
Arrive: Fly into Salzburg (80km), Innsbruck (95km) or Munich (170 km) - don’t forget to carbon offset your flight!
Stay: We haven’t had the chance to test any hotels in the area since we tend to stay in private homes. Yet we have experienced the world-class spa at the Grand Tirola and trust that the spa area reflects the service quality and amenities in the rooms and the rest of the hotel as well.
Eat: Wirtshaus zum Rehkitz – this traditional restaurant sources tasty regional ingredients.
Experience: KitzSki – Kitzbühel and Kirchberg’s slopes, hiking routes and ski huts.
Disclaimer: We are very aware that skiing in itself isn’t sustainable. But we are not here to stop you from experiencing the beauty of travel and outdoor adventure. We are simply here to inspire you to be a little more conscious about the products you buy for the trips you take.
