6. 527 Sunglasses — Bollé


Supreme style, a durable nylon frame and distortion-free lenses make Bollé’s 527 sunglasses a go-to for shredding ladies. This was a top-selling model back in the ‘80s and now it’s back for another go ‘round.

7. Signature SPF 50 Sunscreen — Sun Bum


Both during and after spring skiing, forgetting sunscreen is a brutally horrible mistake. Avoid the lobster look and lather up with this all-natural goodness from Sun Bum; it’s zinc-based, sweat-repellant, unscented and small enough to fit in your pocket.

8. Stashable Tote 18L — Dakine


Don’t show up to après juggling all your belongings like a clown. Use Dakine’s Stashable Tote instead, which sports a sleek look, 18 liters of storage and packs into itself when not in use.
