It’s time to gear up for the impending snowstorms of winter. With the right gear, you can make the most of the fluffy white stuff and get out there on the slopes. Having a few key quality items means the difference between being comfortable regardless of conditions and spending the majority of your day in the lodge. The items below will keep you going from first chair to last call.
Aether Alpine Shell
Aether’s Alpine Shell is the perfect impenetrable layer to protect you from impending blizzards this winter. As a ski shell, the Alpine is cut more athletically than most ski jackets, but still allows enough room and stretch to send it off cliffs and through birch forests. It also comes equipped with RECCO, which, in a worst-case scenario, can help rescue crews find you more quickly.
Merino Wool Buff
A merino wool Buff is the perfect companion, whether you’re a skier or snowboarder. It can be worn in a variety of ways, and the merino wool breathes well, keeps your face warm and dries quickly when wet.
Celtek Gore-Tex El Nino Glove
Celtek’s El Nino gloves not only come with badass graphics, but they also come with a Gore-Tex liner that will keep your hands bone dry. Celtek rates them 9/10 on a scale of warmth, thanks in part to the sherpa fleece that lines the back.
Farm to Feet Boise Socks
Merino wool socks are key in the outdoors, and no one does merino ski socks better than Farm to Feet. They’re made from US-sourced and US-knit merino wool, featuring targeted cushion zones to help with circulation down to your feet.
