Fresh Gear for Spring Snow


Ladies Edition

It’s not too late to outfit yourself with the latest ski or snowboarding gear. In fact, if you love to shop on the cheap, now’s the best time to upgrade! Steep discounts will save a bundle, and you’ll start off next season right with stylish new duds.

Ride Farah Board

Ride Farah Board Advanced ladies will take on the whole mountain with this stable, responsive snowboard. With a womens-specific design, the Farah has a narrower waist width and rocker in the nose with camber throughout the rest. The side slimewalls help you ride smoothly on snow or rails. On sale for $347

G-Form Knee Pads

G-Gorm Knee Pads If you are a beginner, or prone to taking hard spills on your knees, these pads are worth buying! Just slip them on underneath snow pants and have a worry-free day of riding. The RPT™ –Reactive Protection Technology–makes the pads flexible and soft during normal wear, but they harden upon impact to absorb shock. $59

Snow Angel Chami Baselayers

Feminine and functional, these baselayers are my new favorite. The fabric is smooth on the face and fleecy inside for ultimate warmth. The top makes a great second layer over a fitted, wicking baselayer like Helly Hansen, whereas the leggings are best worn on their own. Plus, they’re cute enough to go from slopes to supper without a wardrobe change. Half-zip Top $78, Leggings $55

Kombi Minx Gloves

Kombi Cute and toasty, this glove’s low-profile cuff fits under jackets to keep snow out and help you stay dry. A Waterguard insert lets sweat evaporate while preventing snow from getting in. And the luxuriously soft furry fleece lining makes these gloves a treat to put on. (And it really helps keep your digits thawed!) On sale for $42 at

Bye bye frozen fingers! Hello happiness. These leather, goose-down filled mitts are warm and wonderful on cold days. The snug wrist cuff keeps snow out and the easy-to-use integrated safety system works with Trigger S poles for added security. $150

Cloudveil Down Patrol Coat

Cloudveil Down Patrol Coat

When the mercury reading drops below zero, pull out this seriously warm, 650-fill down jacket. The windproof shell keeps weather out and mesh-lined pit vents help you cool off if you overheat. The powder skirt snaps to pants, but can be removed when you sport the jacket around town. The great price makes it worth adding to your gear stash. $187.50

Spyder Hillary Jacket
