While a chilly winter in the UK is no fun for anyone, there's a silver lining to the icy weather - the colder months mean a chance to hit the slopes, and look fabulous while you're at it. Whether you're a seasoned skier, off to the bunny slopes or just focused on the fondue (or the mulled wine), we've got your ski style covered.
