We all want to maximize the hours we get to spend when we're playing outside in the snow, but how often do we keep that in mind when we're shopping for new gear? It's easy to be distracted by showroom flash and salesman hype, but we've got your back. From snacks to socks and backpacks to breathability, this gear guide is dedicated to the quality of your season. We want you ripping from the first flakes to the spring thaw to the summer laps at Timberline. People will think you're some Olympian in training. It's cool, we won't tell.
