This is the gear any lady or ‘gent skier would love to see under the tree or topped with a bow this holiday season.
HIM | Rossignol Experience 88 HD
A longtime tester favorite got an update for 2017 and it’s about time your dad/husband/boyfriend/brother gets an updated pair of sticks too. The new HD Experience models, like Rossi’s super-popular 7 Series skis, feature a new reinforcement laminate that blends strong, snappy carbon with mellow, damp basalt fiber. The new Experience 88 still specializes—perhaps more than ever—in long, high-speed arcs, with edge grip that belies its width and a smooth, quiet ride. Any guy would be pleased to see these under the tree this year.
HER | Nordica Speedmachine 105
Top of the line all mountain performance for any woman. Even your mom will love these boots.
HIM |Smartwool Corbet 120
An athlete favorite from Smartwool, the Corbet 120 is the perfect mix of next-to-skin Merino wool and 120g Smartloft insulation to keep the guy in your life warm all day long. This piece is great for layering or as a jacket for cold weather runs, x-country skiing and all cold weather activities.
