Backcountry Cardiac Gore-Tex Pro Jacket | $329 (40 percent off)
Designed for backcountry adventures and resort powder hounds, the Cardiac Gore-Tex Pro jacket boasts all the features you need to stay dry and comfortable in any conditions. Gore-Tex Pro offers a waterproof to breathability ratio that locks out snow but prevents overheating as you earn your turns and will put up with serious abuse.
Backcountry Cardiac Gore-Tex Pro Bibs | $299 (40 percent off)
Like their partner jacket, the Cardiac Gore-Tex Pro bibs provide plenty of protection when snorkeling in deep powder as well as enough stretch to move with you through every turn. The side zips open from knee to chest for additional ventilation. Plus, the lower legs are reinforced with ripstop to take abuse from branches in tight tree lines.
Black Diamond Dawn Patrol 32L Backpack | $144 (15 percent off)
This backcountry pack features tons of thoughtful design elements, from the separate compartment for avalanche gear, to the stowable helmet system, and to the insulated hydration sleeve and port that protects water from freezing. Carry skis diagonally or in the A-frame position; snowboards can be carried vertically, all without limiting access to the main pack compartment. For a smaller day pack, check out the 25 liter version.
Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer 2 Down Jacket | $244-$276 (15-25 percent off)
This is one of the lightest down jackets out there, thanks to the 800-fill goose down and Whisper Ripstop nylon outer (made entirely from recycled materials), all of which adds warmth without bulk. The DWR coating protects the down from light weather.
Stoic Corduroy Overshirt | $39-$45 (50 percent off)
Throw on this relaxed-fit corduroy shirt over your base layer for instant fashion points at après. The super soft cotton includes a hint of stretch for added mobility. The fun colors mean there’s one to fit any personal style.
Backcountry Lightweight Merino Baselayer Crew | $47-$55 (30-40 percent off)
Designed for a long day of rigorous activity, this lightweight baselayer features 84 percent merino wool, 12 percent nylon, and 4 percent spandex for a solid combination of temperature regulation, moisture wicking, and mobility. It’s a great layering piece that doesn’t add bulk.
Outdoor Research Tundra Aerogel Booties | $71 (20 percent off)
Nothing beats the relief that comes with taking off stiff ski boots and sliding your feet into a pair of comfy slippers after a long day on the slopes. These insulated booties are stuffed with PrimaLoft for extra warmth and have an Aerogel sole insert for maximum comfort—they’re warm enough that you can stand directly on the snow and still have happy toes.
Cotopaxi Teca Fleece Pullover | $54-$63 (30-40 percent off)
This super soft fleece is made with 100 percent recycled polyester, which is good for you and the planet. The retro-inspired style comes in many fun limited-edition colors that will spice up your ski kit or errands outfit.
