What does a mountain girl REALLY want for Christmas? Faye Young, STYLE ALTITUDE, writes her Christmas list. And, yes, socks are included...

1)  Union Juliet Bindings

Now I'm not saying that all girls buy things based on looks but these bindings are beautiful AND they perform even better than they look. These are the perfect all round bindings for any all mountain or freestyle setup. The ankle and toe straps are super comfortable and evenly distribute pressure across your foot providing a snug fit all day long. The EVA foam base dampens impact and smooths out any vibrations and bumps, which means they keep your legs charging the mountains and park for hours. £134.99.

2)  Superdry Clarrie Snood

Superdry have some really soft winter knits in their range and this snood is the best! It has a thick fleece lining on the inside and big chunky knit cable pattern on the outside. Perfect for cold walks around resort in the evening. £29.99. 

3) Ugg Vivienne Sheepskin Bag

This real sheepskin and leather Ugg bag is top quality and looks great worn across the body around the resort. What girl wouldn't want one? £145.

4)  Eivy Baselayer Pants 

No snowboarder or skier can be disappointed with a new pair of thermals for Christmas when they are this pretty. Eivy have some really gorgeous prints this winter, I really don't think you could choose a bad set! It's an easy winner if you are unsure of what kind of style the person is into. Soft, stretchy and quick drying fabric means these will keep you warm and comfortable on those extra cold mountain days. The great thing about Eivy base layers is that they also look great worn in the chalet. £46.99.

5)  Celtek Gore-Tex Calypso Mittens

With the addition of Gore-Tex tech this winter you know you're in good hands with Celtek. The Hunter graphics designed by Lisa Frank are sure to be a hit with the ladies, this season because, yet again, it is tech that performs just as well as it looks. The cuff on these mittens stops any snow and cold getting in and the finger inserts inside keep your hands extra warm and snug. Mittens are always the warmer choice when it comes to gloves vs mittens so go for them if the person you're buying for always complains about being too cold! £74.99

Socks are usually a pretty standard Christmas gift but Stance are at the top of the sock game. These Xmas socks are really cute and would make the perfect stocking filler gift. £18.99 two pack box.

7)  DC Riji SE Snow Jacket 

With a nice long fit this jacket is perfect for the mountains, it's waterproof to 15k and has lots of useful pockets, including a lift pass pocket on the sleeve. Streetwear inspired styling means this looks great on and off the mountain. The high neck and Lycra cuff gators will stop any cold draughts getting in. The relaxed fit means it isn't restrictive when you're riding or hiking. £185.
