Six Accessories for Your Ski Chalet
The kit you need for enjoying the simple life
Long winter nights spent by fire are the perfect antidote to a busy life. These products will encourage you to pour a dram, crack open a good book, and unplug.
Country Gentleman Pipe Set ($20)
Save the cigars for your backyard barbecue. With a deep bowl and a hardwood insert, this traditional corncob pipe gives an even, cool smoke you can savor all night long.
Mollyjogger Bear and Son Knife and Scrimshaw Kit ($80)
Scrimshaw—the engraving of whale or buffalo bone—was the hobby of the high seas and western frontier in the nineteenth century and it’s not a bad way to while away a night by the fire. This kit comes with everything you need to get started, including a bone-handled folding Bear and Son knife, tracing and scribing tools and a vial of India ink.
Whiskey Peaks Rocks Glass Set ($70)
Put the “rocks” back in your rocks glasses with this foursome that shows your love of the mountains. Each hand-blown glass features a topographic impression of one of four iconic American peaks: Denali, Half Dome, Rainier, and Whitney. These mountains rise from the bottom of the glasses, submerged in your favorite malt until you drink it down.
“Stronger Than Steel” Zippo Lighter ($40)
Whether you’re starting the fire in the cabin stove or lighting up your pipe, this tried-and-true Zippo has got you covered, with a strong, windproof flame and all-steel construction that is guaranteed for life. Huckberry has customized this one with a well-known aphorism and given it a “grey dusk” translucent finish.
Glerups Camp Sole Boot ($155)
Leave your snow-covered boots on the porch and slip into these 100-percent wool camp boots for padding around the cabin. The double-layered insole is luxuriously comfortable and the rubber outsoles are secure on slippery wooden floors. Just don’t call them slippers.
