2- DRYGUY BOOT GLOVE
Keep your feet warm with the BootGlove. The BootGlove provides a protecting layer of insulating neoprene for your ski boots to reduce wind chill and prevent loss of body heat in extreme winter conditions. Overall, the BootGlove retains an average of +20°F/7°C in your boot’s toe box, conserving heat loss where it’s most important…YOUR FEET!
3- JONES SOLUTION SPLITBOARD
Bolt-less Bridge and no T-nut Holes (no more digging out wax!) The Bolt-less Bridge eliminates split clip attachment hardware from the base of the board by re-profiling the wood core at the clips. The wood core under the clips is thicker , providing better torsional stiffness and a more powerful connection at the split clips. The 2019 lighter Solutions Master Core, added Web Fused Carbon Stringers.
4- GIRO’S EMERGE HELMET
Originally designed for Giro’s FreeStyle Team, this helmet pairs two densities of foam to manage both high and low energy impacts. The EPP foam is a crushable foam that retains its shape and some of it’s protective qualities after MULTIPLE impacts. MIPS Spherical (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System); also featured on Giro’s high end racing helmets, the two layers of dual density EPP foam act as a ball-and-socket allowing for movement of several millimeters in any direction for the effective reduction of rotational energy during certain impacts.
5- JACK WOLFSKIN
We love Jack Wolfskin’s Soft Shell Jacket with Hardshell capabilites. It’s soft to the touch, with stretch elements that make moving in the mountains a true delight. Get the set, jacket and pants for guys and gals. Geek out on the specs: Texapore fabric is 30k, waterproof, 35k Breathability (generally speaking Gore Tex is 28k, waterproof with 15k Breathability). PFC free; no harmful C8 or other perfluorinated compounds are used to make this item waterproof.

Another way to enjoy the snow with Tubbs Day Hiking Snow Shoe. It has a heel strap that’s incorporated right into the bindings, allowing you to adjust your fit with ease.
