With that chill in the air, it can only mean one thing. Winter is here, and with it comes an Aldi sale like no other.
After taking a pause last year amid the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in Australia, the supermarket’s annual snow sale – which often sees swarms of shoppers desperately trying to snap up a bargain – will make a return on Saturday, May 22.
Previously, people get so invested in bagging a bargain, shoppers will often try “working in teams” to get their hands on the best deals.
Each year, the German retailer rolls out everything from jackets to goggles, boots and under layers, providing Aussie shoppers with everything to keep warm and dry while hitting the slopes.
With the retailer’s Premium range designed in Austria, the snow gear – in both men’s, women’s and even children’s sizes – is said to withstand all extreme weather conditions from the Alps to the Snowy Mountains.

The retailer said this year, there will be enough gear that shoppers can dress a family of four head-to-toe for under $1000. The fill catalogue featuring all sale items will be released on Wednesday, May 12.
News.com.au received a sneak peak at some of the highlights for adults this year, including six varieties of snow jackets, ranging from a light knit jacket ($39.99) and soft shell jackets ($59.99) all the way to a superior windproof, waterproof, breathable shell jacket with a removable inner jacket ($119.99), which is suitable for all alpine conditions.
For both men and women there will be four varieties of snow pants, including the popular “In Need of a Challenge”, which boast PFC-free waterproof finish, pre-shaped knees, adjustable waist and leg cuffs with abrasion-resistant reinforcement ($99.99).

For the kids this year, there will are five varieties of snow jackets suitable for two to 14-year-olds, and two varieties of snow pants appropriate for the same age range with PFC-free water-repellent finish (for just $29.99).
The Aldi snow sale traditionally takes place each May and attracts thousands of shoppers across the country desperate to snap up a cool saving on snow gear.
In 2017, the sale created chaotic scenes in stores across the country, with some shoppers pushing and shoving their way through the aisles.
Australia’s ski and snow retail sector – estimated to be worth more than $2 billion a year – is dominated by Aldi’s annual sale.
