The new year has been blessed with record-breaking snow storms in nearly every western U.S. mountain town, resulting in powder days a plenty. Kick those post-holiday blues with these must-haves for the ski and snow board obsessed.
THE HARD GOODS
Icelantic Skis: The Grand Teton National Park Collection | Headquartered in Colorado and launched by athletes, Icelantic quickly made a name for itself with its “Return to Nature” mantra. The second annual installment of the Special Edition National Park Collection Skis + Gear is the Grand Teton National Park Collection, which features the Grand Teton Nomad 105 and Grand Teton Maiden 101 skis. Artwork is by Co-Founder Travis Parr and features the iconic peaks of the Grand Tetons. What’s more, Icelantic is donating 10 percent of all sales to help protect the beauty of the park.
Burton: Family Tree Hometown Hero Camber Splitboard | Want to earn your snowboard turns? Try this go-getter from Burton to combine a killer uphill workout, summit vistas, and then a fast downhill ascent on a snowboard designed to go both up and down the mountain.
Rossignol: Alltrack 130 GW Ski Boots | This stylish ski boot can accommodate both wide-footed and regular skiers, with a flexible shell that will satisfy fast shredders, yet still absorb dicey snow conditions. Plus, GripWalk soles make it easy to navigate the streets after toasting an epic powder day during après ski.
ALL ABOUT ACCESSORIES
POC: Freeride Helmet & Goggles | If there’s one aspect of gearing up for skiing that any mountain local will advise you to avoid, it’s the dreaded “gaper gap”—the not-so-stylish space between helmet and goggles. The solution? This sleek helmet-goggle system from POC. Designed to fit perfectly snug (and the helmet is ultra-safe), all you have to think about is perfecting your turns.
Brunello Cucinelli: Shearling Ear Muffs | Looking like a ski bunny in Deer Valley? Consider it done with this oh-so-stylish score. Headbands are so ‘80s; earmuffs are the way to go in 2022.
Hestra: Army Leather Gloves | Put simply, if your fingers are freezing, skiing is no fun. Hestra is the industry leader in warm gloves and mittens, and these colorful faves will liven up your ski outfit too, too.
Cordova OTB: Ski Suit | Yes, rock it in bright red. Not only will you be easy to spot on the slopes, but you’ll also show off a nod to vintage glam. Tres chic!
Stio: Environ Jacket | Launched in Jackson Hole, Stio is one of the most talked about U.S. ski brands. This bestseller for men (we like treeline green) will keep you dry and warm during the rowdiest of storms.
Strafe: M or W Sickbird Suit | The ultimate powder warrior, this one piece (opt for camo) is seen all over Aspen Snowmass. Designed by local Aspen athletes, Strafe is the tried-and-trending brand for those in the know.
