Keep your little one extra cozy in an adorable Jupa Toddler 2-Piece Ski Suit, that offers the warmth of a one-piece with the convenience of two separate pieces. It boasts 170g of insulation and waterproof fabric, so you can be sure baby will stay warm and dry.
Coasting down a snow-covered hill is always so much more fun when it’s shared with someone else! Kids (and kids at heart) will have a blast in the Kwik Tek AIRHEAD 2-Person Figure 8 Snow Tube, especially since it’s so lightweight and easy to pull up for another go around.
How cool is this Yamaha Fx Nytro Ultimate Snow Slope-Slider? Modeled after the famous Yamaha Apex snowmobile, its bike styling, adjustable cushioned seat and sophisticated snow brakes make for one cool ride.
Cold-weather sports definitely call for the right kind of apparel, and this year, I’ve got the Schampa Coolskin Balaclava at the top of my list. This fully flat-seamed piece fits under any helmet, while the silky fabrication wicks and breathes, keeping you warm and dry during any activity.
I think the Emsco Infant Toboggan is such a great choice for fun in the snow with baby. Its extra-high backed seat ensures your little one’s comfort and support, while raised foot-support rails and seat area keep baby well above the cold snow for a secure and safe ride.
The perfect snowball CAN be yours! Just pick up the Flexible Flyer Snowball Maker, which is designed to make a precisely round snowball in roughly a second that’s compact enough to travel far, and aerodynamic enough to be thrown accurately.
Get your gear to the slopes in style with this sturdy SportRack A26395 Aero 1300 Roof Box. I love that it holds up to 110 pounds of cargo, so I can bring along everything from skis and snowboards to luggage and other snow essentials.
For little ski bunnies, I recommend the Oakley Kids Snow Goggles. The thick triple-layer of polar fleece foam wicks away moisture, while anti-fog lenses make sure they can see clearly under any conditions.
After a long day out in the snow, I like to come home and make sure all my stuff is nice and dry and ready for the next day. That’s why I’m glad I have a DryGuy Gear Tree at home. It uses an ultra-powerful (but whisper quiet) rotary blower to dry out boots, pants, jacket, gloves, and a hat, all at the same time!
I plan to race down snowy hills with a sleek Paricon Winter Lightning Sled. The secret to its speed and durability? A specially molded nose and a body that’s cold-crack treated to withstand years of use in even the chilliest winter.
It doesn't matter how good you are with a pair of skis or a hockey stick, not having the proper gloves to keep your digits warm will render your hands useless in cold conditions. This selection of DAKINE Men's Scout Gloves offers waterproof, breathable gloves that are insulated with DAKINE's non-bulky, synthetic Thermoloft. You can opt to remove the fleece liners in warmer conditions, and the non-bulky style of the gloves gives your hands... more
If, like us, your last experience with skiing involved sitting on the couch watching the Winter Olympics, then it might be a good idea to watch this helpful DVD – in addition to taking lessons – before you hit the slopes again. The Sofa Ski School DVD is geared for intermediate to expert skiers. It features Klaus Mair, a fully certified Austrian Level 3 ski instructor, who goes over the main fundamentals, including carving,... more
After a full day on the slopes or in the rink, your gloves, socks, and boots are going to be soaked. And there is nothing worse than heading out into the cold with a wet pair of gloves or socks. That's where the DryGuy Wide-Body Boot and Glove Dryer comes in handy. It blasts heated air onto your garments and can dry up to four garments in about an hour. You can also warm... more
We're not big fans of throwing ourselves down a snow-covered hill at high speeds. We prefer to spend our time out in the snow at a much slower pace that lets us enjoy the scenery. These Atlas Powderidge Snowshoes for both men and women let you wear thick winter boots or casual hikers with the easy-to-use supportive bindings that provide directional control and stability. The lightweight aluminum frame and rotating toe cord mean an... more
When picking out skis for the first time, you can't just pick out any old pair. You have to examine your particular style of skiing, as well as the terrain that you'll be covering. Not only will these G3 Jam Skis stand out in the white snow thanks to their brightly-colored design, but the mid-fat skis' early rise tip makes them easy to steer in tight situations. A wide, 95mm waist gives them a... more
We may be showing our age here, but when we grew up, sleds were made of wood, not the plastic used for today's sleds. That's why, when the time came this week for us to buy a new sled, we went with this Mountain Boy Sledworks Ultimate Flyer 52-Inch Sled. This old-school sled is made of durable birch and willow, and features a pivoting front section to make turns and stops while heading down... more
It's snowing right now as we're writing this, and we can't help but think about heading out to the slopes. These Nordica Speedmachine Men's Ski Boots are designed for skiers that like speed. Thermo-moldable precision-fit liners and power driver straps transfer energy from your boots to your skis for support and for clean and quick turns. The flex adjusters let you customize your boots to match the snow conditions to allow for greater flexibility.... more
What do you get the Guy Who Has Everything for Valentine's Day? With a waterproof, high-tech Audex jacket he can answer calls and listen to music - on his snowboard. Designed by Motorola and Burton, each Audex jacket is wired with built-in Bluetooth connectivity, as well as a control panel, hidden headphone jack, stereo speakers, hands-free mic, and rechargeable battery pack. All of which come out when it's time to do laundry.
Deep snow? No problem, with these Lightning Ascent snowshoes from MSR. Made out of aerospace-grade aluminum, they're incredibly lightweight and deliver 360-degree traction. They're designed for maximum foot stability and minimal heel drift, with a Televator heel lifter that reduces calf fatigue, and simple and secure step-on bindings that fit lots of boots. Did we mention they're also 100% waterproof?
