Favorite piece of gear this season: Hestra Heli Mitten

What you use it for: To keep my hands nice and toasty. I always have cold hands and these are the only mittens that have truly solved that problem for me.

What you love most about it: The fit, durability of the mitten with the leather palm and the fact that they are waterproof and breathable. I’m always cold and cold hands suck. These mittens keep me outside longer.

Other winter gear favorites:

Hotronic Boot Heaters – For obvious reasons. I’m always cold and everyone knows cold feet on a ski day is the worst. I literally go all day with these heaters.

My SmartWool base layers, top and bottom – Warm, yet thin, no chafing, no bulk, just simply some of the best base layers I’ve worn. Washes well too.

Favorite piece of gear this season: Rossignol Track 130 Ski Boots

What you use it for: Charging around the mountain

What you love most about it: I’m always on the quest for the perfect fitting boot for a wide foot, tall instep and powerful flex, and the Rossignol Track 130 fits the bill. I found this to have the perfect combination of flex and rebound to match my style of skiing: Big, fast and aggressive.

Other winter gear favorites:

Salomon Warden 13 Bindings and Blizzard Rustler 10 LTD Skis – Some of the best equipment out there. This stuff is built for the serious skier who puts his gear to the test.

Giro Onset Goggles – The new Vivid Lens provides a hyper-clear, enhanced view of the mountain.

Favorite piece of gear this season: Elan Delight Supreme Women’s Skis with ELW 10.0 Bindings

What you use it for: Skiing the groomers

What you love most about it: They’re well-built to enhance skills. They grip, hold and carve securely as you turn, then they respond quickly to your next move. They generate and boost activity. Lightweight to wear and carry, along with its visual “POP- color” appeal, this ski is a real treat to ride on.

Other winter gear favorites:

Smith Valence Women’s Helmet and the Smith Virtue Women’s Goggles – a perfect pairing.

Name: Justin Sienkowski

Title: Copywriter

Favorite piece of gear this season: Rossignol Jibsaw Snowboard

What you use it for: Park play and all-mountain shredding

What you love most about it: It’s one of the few park boards that I feel confident going anywhere on the mountain with speed. The Magne-Traction gives constant control, and it’s still super playful; just like a park board should be.

Other winter gear favorites:

Burton Weekend 2-Pack Snowboard Socks – My feet tend to get a bit sweaty, but these bad boys keep them fresh and cool by wicking away moisture.

Giro Union MIPS Helmet – The MIPS tech is stellar, and everything is fully adjustable. It gives me the confidence to take risks and push myself.

Ride Rook Boa Snowboard Boots – A great all-around boot at a budget-friendly price.
