If you know someone who loves to hop on their snowboard (or skis) as often as they can, then hear are some gift ideas for that person! Chances are, anything that improves their trip to the slopes will leave them feeling grateful!
Some people own. Others rent. The problem with renting is that you usually have to wait in line, which eats into the amount of time you get to spend on the hill. You also can’t guarantee a perfect fit, as most rentals only come in standard sizes. Not to mention, do you really want to stick your feet into boots that have been on hundreds of other feet? Probably not. This is where a great friend like you steps in and buys some boots as a gift. Ditch the lines and the smells and get that person you love some snow boots!
While boots help keep a person attached to the snowboard, slippers are meant to keep their feet warm during all the other moments. Back at the lodge or cabin, it’s important to stay comfy and cozy. Not only do slippers make a practical gift, they also convey that you care for a person deep down, simply by saying without words, “I don’t want you to catch a cold.” Awe. Wasn’t that sweet? It’s kind of like giving their feet a nice big hug (without actually touching them).
Ski (or snowboard) helmet
Nothing makes a good ski trip like not having to go to the ER to get stitches on your melon. And, you can provide that nice gift to someone you love by buying them a ski helmet (assuming you want them to return in on piece). This is one way to say “Hey, I love you. I don’t want you to get a concussion or a subdural hematoma.” There are few other ways to say the same thing with such finesse.
The right gear is just as essential as the right clothing. Start with a snowboard (if you’ve got the budget). If you know your friend’s preferred skiing style well, you can choose among several snowboard variants, including freestyle, freeride, all-mountain, and slip boards. An all mountain freestyle snowboard might be a little more than what your friend had expected—it’ll totally wow them.
To make things easier, we recommend getting your friend a Telos Snowboards gift card, so they shop for themselves and buy premium skiing gear online. Here is the entire snowboard collection to choose from.
