5 Must-Have Items For Playing In the Snow

These products will keep you cozy, connected and dry. (Plus, we found the skis you're going to want this season.)


Stay connected: The Hitcase Pro iPhone case

The Hitcase Pro iPhone case is 100-per-cent waterproof and fully mountable, so you won’t miss those magic moments in the mountains. It’s also shockproof if you’re the kind of rider that takes the hits.


The just-right ski: The Rossignol Experience 88 HD



Super-fat skis seem to have had their day, with the top brands refocusing their attention this season on their mid-sized lines, which are the best pick for all-mountain skiing. The Rossignol Experience 88 HD is a perfect blend of punch and playful powder tool, with a precision carve to make the most of your slope time. 


Stay cozy: HH Dry Performance Crew

Don’t skimp on the layer next to your skin. Helly Hansen has spent a long time perfecting performance fabrics to keep ski patrol and North Sea fishermen comfy. The new HH Dry Performance Crew will do the heavy breathing for you, kicking the moisture out and keeping the warmth in, right where you want it. 


Stay dry: Outdoor Research’s Maximus Gore-Tex jacket

Powder skiers love a good dump, but to enjoy those flakes to the fullest requires protection from the storm. Outdoor Research’s Maximus Gore-Tex jacket can take anything Mother Nature throws at you.


Power up: Goal Zero Venture 30 Recharger

Your smartphone or GoPro aren’t much use with a dead battery. Take the Goal Zero Venture 30 Recharger with you and you’ll always be ready to capture the action (or just meet up with your friends for lunch). Pre-charge before you set out, or use the solar-ready feature to charge on the go. And, if a storm blows in, don’t worry, because it’s weatherproof, too.
