Shotzski DIY kit   

Normally, we tend to only give awards to innovative gear you actually use in the field. But because celebrating a day on the slopes can be just as fun as the actual skiing, we had to give Sandpoint, Idaho-based Shotzski props. The company's DIY kits come with 4 plastic boots, four bindings, and the necessary screws and instructions to turn one of your old GS boards into everyone's favorite communal shot-delivery device.

Gradations on the boot—the circle symbol equals one ounce, the double-diamond denotes 3 ounces—make for easy measuring. Don't have any old skis to repurpose? Shotzski also sells new and used premade shot skis (from $195) of almost every stripe, from old-school Olins to Atomic's Bent Chetlers.

More breakthrough gear from SIA 2014.
