With fresh snow on the ground and the holidays approaching, things are picking up in the shop and we are excited to see the new season getting under way. Finding time to shop for gifts and go skiing can be difficult. So here’s a list of 5 recommended gifts for a skier to make gift giving easier.
1. Dale of Norway
Everybody knows about Dale of Norway but not everybody owns a Dale of Norway yet. These timeless hand-crafted sweaters bring a touch of old ski style to a modern-day winter look. Two shop favorites are the Women’s Geilo Sweater and the Men’s Geilo Sweater. This is one of those special holiday gifts for a skier that has always wanted one but have not have bought for themselves.
2. Sweet Protection Igniter II MIPS Helmet
The Boot Pro has carried Sweet Protection for two years now and cannot be more pleased with their fit and performance. The Igniter II MIPS is their lightest helmet with awesome ventilation. Sweet is a Norwegian based company with a mission to create the best helmet in the industry. We sell this helmet in both male and female colors. Give the gift of protection this holiday with a sweet new lid!
3. Arc’teryx’s Mens Rush Jacket
There’s no need to introduce a brand like Arc’teryx, even if you only know it by its bird-like skeleton logo. It is a brand that lasts well beyond the rest and lives up to expectation. The Men’s Rush Jacket is a gift for the true skier who wishes to have versatility and reliability in a jacket that will be forever in style.
4. Lenz Heated Socks 5.0 Toe Cap
Packs of toe warmers are for stockings; a heated sock is for under the tree. The Lenz Heated 5.0 Toe Cap Sock is not just a skier’s gift but for anyone who enjoys getting outside in the winter. Built with a small heating element that wraps around the toes, these will keep toes from becoming unbearably cold.
5. Kulkea Thermal Trekker Boot Bag
That’s right it’s a heated boot bag! The Thermal Trekker is a little warming oven for your boots, plug it into a wall outlet or your car. With additional space for gloves, goggles and a helmet. A gift that keeps on giving – a warm pair of boots will start any skier off on the right foot.
