The 10 Best Gifts for Skiers and Snowboarders
Have a skier or snowboarder in your life you’d like to get a gift for but you don’t know where to start? You’re not alone—shopping for winter sports enthusiasts can be tough, especially if you’re not a skier or snowboarder yourself. To give you some ideas, we put together a list of the best gifts for skiers and snowboarders below.
Whirlibird Ski Goggles ($69)
What makes a better gift for skiers than a nice pair of goggles? Made with a high-tech anti-fog lens and a helmet-compatible design, these will keep their vision crystal clear. Not only that, they have comfy dual foam and a soft micro-fleece lining.
Peak Pursuit™ 32L Backpack ($175)
If you’re really looking to spoil that skier or snowboarder in your life, treat them to this Peak Pursuit™ day pack. Designed with a padded hip belt and comfy sternum straps, it’s one of the best backpacks for skiers. In addition to an A-frame ski carry, it features a helmet pouch, fleece-lined google pocket, vertical snowboard carry, and an avalanche tool compartment.
Is the skier or snowboarder in your life tiny-sized? If so, this set of kids' ski clothes is just the ticket. With waterproof fabric and cozy fleece liners, these snow clothes are both warm and comfy. Not only that, they feature an innovative system called Outgrown™, where the sleeves and pants can extend to grow with them.
Boasting Columbia Sportswear's brand-new Omni-Heat™ Infinity technology, this women’s ski and snowboarding jacket combines warmth and style. The stretchy fabric provides flexibility to move while the heat-reflective liner makes it extra toasty. For a similar men’s version, check out this Omni-Heat™ Infinity ski jacket.
The great thing about this men’s ski and snowboarding jacket is that it’s technical enough to keep you warm on the mountain yet stylish enough to wear around town. Plus, the interchangeable style makes it extremely versatile—wear it as an insulated jacket, a down jacket, or an outer shell. For a similar women’s version, check out these 3-in-1 ski jackets.
Toddler Double Flake™ Set ($130)
Similar to the toddler’s Frosty Slope™, the Double Flake™ is another excellent set of ski gear for kids. Like the first option, it’s designed with the Outgrown™ system to extend the cuffs and pant legs so they grow with them. The jacket and pants are both fully waterproof, with warm insulation and cozy pockets.
