When it is time for adventure, the Stealth Shovel converts into a packable unit that fits into every backcountry ski pack we tested.

Popsocket — Popsockets

$10

PopSocket

The PopSocket is a simple, yet amazingly helpful gizmo that adheres to the back of your phone and acts as a grip, media stand, cord wrap or whatever other function you might find useful. It’s perfect for helping you avoid dropping your phone from the chairlift while sending a quick text, or shooting pictures and video while on the slopes. They’re available in myriad colors or designs and you can even upload your own photos or logos to their site to create your own personalized PopSocket.

$59.99

polkspeaker

This waterproof, Bluetooth speaker comes with a flexible tail to hook on your backpack or belt loo. The speaker is compact, yet still packs big sound, eight hours of playback at full voume and four separate colorways, to adequately match with your style preferences.


Super Fleece Blanket — Rumpl

$149-249

rumpl_giftguide

Whether it’s in your tent, car or bedroom, Rumpl’s Super Fleece Blanket is one of the most comfortable pieces of gear a skier can own. On one side, you’ll find a DWR-coated face that repels water and stains. On the other, you’ll find anti-microbial (anti-stink) fleece that’s cozier than you could possibly imagine.


Happy Camper Belt — Arcade Belt

$26

Arcade

The belt you use on your ski pants isn’t always the belt you wear out on the town. But that notion is changing with the Arcade Happy Camper belt and the rest of the brand’s innovative offerings. These pant elevators have elastane in ’em to allow a little stretch for comfort while remaining snug enough to keep your pants above your ass. Once you go stretch, you’ll never go back.


Poleclinometer — Snowander

$12

poleclinometer

The PoleClinometer™ kit turns your ski pole into the world’s lightest and fastest slope meter. It works quicker than any phone app or pocket inclinometer for measuring slope angles “on the fly” by sighting up, down or across a slope. In addition, color coding on the sticker helps you instantly identify the angles which are most prone to avalanches. The installation kit includes three stickers to fit all standard pole shaft diameters, plus a burly clear protective sleeve that’ll shield your sticker from all the abuse you throw at it. Get one. Ski safe. Have fun.
