You probably own an iPhone. And we’re fine with that, really. Next time we’re on the lift together, we can pull up YouTube and watch a cat with its head stuck in a Pringles can. Or we could use these ski-specific apps. Including a brand new one from The North Face.
Checking, shipping or driving, the Sportube Series 1 is the best, most dependable ski case on the market. They can hold one pair of Alpine skis and poles or two pair of XC skis and poles. Adjustable up to 212 cm long and 140mm wide, it can handle the biggest skis you can find.
Every local has their favorite watering hole and every ski town has some great ones. While we can’t guarantee that a visit to one of these bars will give you that warm fuzzy, “I’m home, mom” feeling, we can say that if you’re looking for a warm place with cold beer to end up when your day is finished, these fine establishments should be at the top of your list. And if your favorite isn’t here, don’t be shy, let us know by posting your recommendations in the “comments” section below. —Tom Winter
