‘Tis the Season for New Skiing and Snowboarding Gear 

As we get closer and closer to winter, we are looking forward to hitting the slopes and getting back out into the cold air at our favorite lodge. After a few years of use and a long, hot summer in storage, though, some of your gear might be looking less than ideal. If you need something new to enhance your trip down the mountain, check out some of these items to round out your ski (and snowboard) gear before the season officially starts.

Skis and Ski Gear

You can’t go skiing without skis (or the right ski clothes for that matter). Make sure that you have a pair that offers stability and agility for an excellent day on the slopes. These skis from Salomon have excellent reviews and are best for downhill skiing in groomed and powdered snow conditions. Of course, be sure to get the best skis for the type of skiing you’re looking to do. Don’t forget your boots, as well as binding brakes to ensure a smooth and safe ride, poles, or how to wash a ski jacket.

Make safety a top priority by adding a helmet to your gear that’s ready for intense activity and has a slick, minimalist style. Be sure to have a pair of goggles ready to protect your eyes from the sun and the snow when you’re out on the slopes. This pair from Smith is great for skiers with smaller faces and offers a dual lens that disperses moisture to prevent fogging. 

Winter Apparel and Layers

Stay warm on the slopes with moisture-wicking base layers and a cozy, warm ski suit. You’ll also want to make sure you have a cozy pair of gloves and socks. When you’re not skiing, you’ll want to make sure you have a comfortable pair of snow boots for good traction when you’re walking around.

Snowboarding

Skiing isn’t your thing? No worries, you can still get out on the slopes. If you’d rather snowboard than ski, make sure your gear is ready for the season. If you’ve been in the market for a new board, check out this one by Arbor Ethos, currently on sale on REI. Designed for women, this board is great for all-mountain snowboarding. It’s tough, highly durable, and incredibly user-friendly—great for beginners. Don’t forget boots and bindings for a comfortable ride down the mountain.
