Whether it was heli-skiing in British Columbia, shredding steeps in Alaska, dropping into new terrain in Jackson Hole, exploring the expansive acreage of Park City or frequenting the many resorts and backcountry objectives in our beautiful backyard of Colorado, the FREESKIER squadron spent the entire winter of ’16 playing with “next season’s” products. Perks of the job… We flexed boots, torqued bindings, thrashed skis, tore through outerwear, dirtied up goggles and dinged helmets until we arrived here—the 2017 Buyer’s Guide.
Welcome, fellow shredder. Our gear guide is filled with 357 extraordinary products for 2017. (And counting…) We’ve provided rankings, reviews and informational guides to assist you in your purchase of new toys and tools for your skiing excursions. All of the goods featured in the Buyer’s Guide are available now at a ski shop near you, or at your favorite online retailer. Read up, buy up, then boogie on down.
