Tis the ski-son for ski gifts

Updated: Jun 2, 2023

There are those that hibernate all winter and there are those who come alive when the corduroy is laid. Snow lovers are a unique group with traditions and lingo all their own, which can make them hard to buy for. Fortunately, we’ve found some great gifts that will put you inside the trust circle of any powder hound. But first, here’s a quick bit of wisdom on what NOT to buy: We recommend shying away from anything that has to be custom-fitted; specifically boots, boards, skis, and poles to name a few.

All products featured on Yayday are independently selected by our editors. However, when you buy something through our Amazon Associate links, we may earn an affiliate commission.

And now, the fresh(ies) list:

The Anon Men's M4 Perceive Goggle Toric and MFI Face Mask is one of the best on the market. The quick swap magnetic attachment of different lenses depending on conditions is a game changer. Our only unanswered question is how hard do you have to crash to yardsale the lens? So far we can’t find anyone who’s done it. $309:
