Let's be honest, after last winter none of us can afford another bad snow season. So do your snow dances and stock up for this season with these eight great deals, which are happening at evo through 9/4.
Giro Axis Goggles ($113; 37 percent off)
With sleek design aesthetics, this fully-featured goggle is loaded with updates. The Zeiss lens has Vivid technology that cuts “bad” or “flat” light (the kind that dulls contrast) out of the spectrum to boost definition and expose nuances in snowpack and terrain. We also love Giro’s quick-action swappable lens system, which relies on four magnets to help align the four corresponding pins that anchor the lens to the largely rimless frame.
Smith Quantum MIPS Helmet ($171: 40 percent off)
Smith subtly integrated a remarkable number of features into this helmet. With its extremely intuitive magnetic strap connector that closes easily with one hand and its supremely well-fitting Boa tightening system, the Quantum works with you as you ski, not just sit on top of your head like a lifeless husk. The liner is made from an airy honeycomb material, called Koroyd, that breathes well; coupled with the 22 vents, it's comfortable even on sweaty backcountry tours.
Black Crows Atris Birdie Women's Skis ($630; 18 percent off)
At 108 millimeter in the waist, the Atris Birdie is a damn fine powder ski, but classic camber underfoot provides excellent edge hold as well. A lively, poppy poplar wood core make it fun in virtually any terrain and it's a great all-mountain platform for any soft snow loving skier.
Ridgetop Merino Wool Pullover Hoodie ($64; 20 percent off)
Made from a blend of super soft merino wool and Tencel, the Ridgetop Merino Wool Pullover hoodie offers incredible comfort during long, exerting days in the mountains.
Black Crows Ventus Gore-Tex Light Jacket (From $335; 42 percent off)
Bag new peaks and explore new terrain with utmost efficiency this season with the Black Crows Ventus Light 3L jacket. Built for the fast and light crowd, it features a slim, but burly 70-denier shell with Gore-Tex's award-winning C-Knit backer for soft and breathable next to skin comfort. Two internal mesh skin pockets, underarm vents, and large outer chest pockets complete the ensemble.
Smith Lowdown Sunglasses ($56; 56 percent off)
For springtime park laps or a trip down the coast, the bold Smith Lowdown polarized sunglasses sport a scaled-down silhouette, signature nose-bridge detail, and a lightweight frame. Impact-resistant ChromaPop polarized lenses with anti-reflective and hydrophobic coatings provide a high level of enhanced color and clarity.
Trew Trewth Bibs ($239; 40 percent off)
This touring bib checks all the backcountry boxes. Its trim fit, superb ventilation, and free range of motion keep you cool and quick on the skin track. Reinforced Dermizax NX fabric and creative storage solutions—including a dedicated beacon pocket—keep you shredding hard on the way down.
2017 K2 Spyne 130 Ski Boots ($248; 62 percent off)
The Spyne 130 is K2's most hard-charging offering with a stiff 130 flex, progressive fore and aft flex, and lasted Intuition Precisionfit liner. The boot incorporates much of the same technologies you'd expect to find on a high-end boot including four micro-adjustable buckles, a cinchable power strap, adjustable canting, and an adjustable forward lean.
