The Ultimate Winter Gear

by noronaadmin


I am a lucky boy and I get to try so many amazing pieces of gear each year! The best part is that companies and engineers are always trying to invent and improve on ideas so the gear these days is just amazing.


Here are a few items you need to check out this year!

If you a skier then you have to check out Genuine Guide Gear’s new ski the Zest. Yes this is a womens ski but the size and shape is just right for me. The Zest’s 130-102-120 shape is perfect for those deep powder days, but it also rips on the groomers. Check it out at one of the many on snow demo’s this year. For all things G3 click here.


To keep the elements out this winter check out Columbia’s St. Pierre Shell. I love this piece and the color and will be rocking it all season. It has a ton of pockets, is build with bomber construction and has amazing waterproof/breathability!

For Sledding, Backcountry Touring or just hanging outside Mountain Hardwear’s Refugium Jacket is the bomb this year. It has an Ardica Heating System within the jacket that will keep you toasty all day and it will keep your ipod or phone charged ¬†all day!

Looking for the ultimate ski socks this winter then look no further than these Smartwool PH D Ski Racer Socks. They fit like a glove, are toasty warm and wick the moisture away from your skin. Awesome!

Keeping your feet warm can be a challenge in very cold conditions especially snowmobiling or if your just outside for a long period of time. That is until you put on a pair of these rad Buga Thermo Boots from Columbia. They are heated!! That’s right with their 3 settings you feet will be toasty warm. I used these this morning while doing some outdoor promo on Breakfast Television, they ROCK!


Whatever your sport you will need a sweet pack to carry all your important safety gear and extra bits. Osprey’s Kode 30 is brand new and it is an awesomely light pack with tons of bells and whistles. It has space for all your essentials and special pockets for all avy gear and is build with strength in mind. It also has great clips and straps to carry skis or a snowboard.
