Despite the heatwave hitting the East Coast, it really is winter in some places. We’ve been hard at work testing some of this year’s best ski gear to find all the best apparel and accessories for every skier on the mountain. This year’s Ski Gear Buyer’s Guide is a collection of our favorite pieces for everything from chasing deep storms, to looking like a pro even if you’re just on the bunny hill.
The Powder Hound
The powderhound lives for deep snow. Whether he’s chasing the latest storm in Jackson Hole or chatting up a snowbunny in Aspen, his gear is always on point. We love the Mountain Hardwear Hellgate Jacket for deep days due to its extra pockets, oversized cut, and voluminous hood. The FLyLow Gear Baker Bib is likewise a good stormday pick for its reinforced knees and instep – you’ll be staying dry long after your friends call it quits. Rounding out our deep days picks is theCochise Light Pro boot. With the heart of a free ride charger, interchangeable soles for alpine and AT bindings, and a generous walk mode, this boot will have you chasing powder in comfort all season.
