Father's Day is the perfect time to get dad something that appeals to who he is as a person—not just a skier. Since next season's ski gear isn't available until September, we've compiled a list of gadgets and toys and even some of last season's ski gear that dads can enjoy during the summer months and keep them occupied until lifts start spinning again. 

For the Outdoor Entertainer 

Yeti Hondo Base Camp Chair, Big Green Egg, and United by Blue Cast Iron and Trivet Set

Must-haves for the guy who loves company. 

1. Yeti Hondo Base Camp Chair

No respectable host rolls out flimsy chairs for their guests to relax in. Make sure he’s got seating he can count on when friends come calling with these sturdy, comfortable, and durable chairs from cooler king Yeti. The Hondo Base Camp Chair is made with a breathable yet strong mesh fiber that can support up to 500 pounds without losing its shape (the double-barrel frame is reinforced with age-hardened aluminum alloy). Add in a handle for easy hauling and a generous cupholder, and this chair sets the standard. [$300, yeti.com]

2. Big Green Egg, Large

If he loves to grill out all summer, thinks “smoked” is the only respectable way to eat Thanksgiving turkey, and is the kind of guy who’d bake a loaf bread on the back patio if he could, then he needs a Big Green Egg. This versatile cooker is at once a grill, smoker, and oven, meaning the options are endless—all year long. The large size is a fit for most families, with 262 square inches of cooking surface that can handle a 20-pound turkey, 12 hamburgers, and eight steaks—though not all at once. [$899, biggreenegg.com]

3. United By Blue Barebones Cast Iron + Trivet Set

This handy three-piece set is just as much at home by the campfire as it is in the backyard, and it has so many uses at each location. The set consists of a cast-iron skillet, crockpot, interchangeable lid, plus thick wood trivet, cleaning mesh, and seasoning oil. The 10-inch skillet and crockpot are oven-, grill-, and campfire-safe, plus the set is handsome as heck and a must-have for any serious cook. [$150, unitedbyblue.com]

For the Skier

[$800, goldwin-sports.com]

2. Leki Spitfire Vario Adjustable Ski Poles

The Spitfire Vario poles will make dad’s life easier whether in the resort or backcountry. Featuring Leki’s Trigger S system, the poles are made to release from their glove attachments under a certain amount of pressure, adding safety while removing pole straps for a clean look. If your father hasn’t upgraded his poles in years, he doesn’t know what he’s missing out on. [$149, leki.com]

The cases fit iPhone and Galaxy devices, and are drop-proof up to six and a half feet. [$40, lifeproof.com]
