DC Judge Step on Snowboard Boots (21/22 season) 30% off $293.93

If you have upgraded or are planning to upgrade your snowboard to step-on bindings, these are the boots for you. With a Flex of 8, they provide just enough stiffness to enable the best carving on piste but enough flexibility to be soft in the powder. I know not everyone is a fan of the step-on technology, but if you’re tired of your skier buddies zooming off and leaving you to strap back in your boot, most folks I have spoken to have found this revolutionary.

Don’t let the 1-star review on the Backcountry website deter you, they are reviewed on Google by 3,805 people who give the Dragon X2 a 4.7-star rating. The Dragon X2 comes with two lenses and in various designs, although personally, I love the one pictured below.

Osprey Soelden Pro 32 Airbag Avalanche backpack 40% off

I know it still sounds expensive at $839.93 but the RRP is $1,400 and these backpacks don’t come up for sale often as they are not subject to ‘fashion changes’. The Osprey Soelden Pro32 has the Alpride E1 system which is the lightest system in the market as it is fully electronic and does not use heavy Li-ion batteries.

Icebreaker Quantum III Long Sleeve Zip Hoodie for $109.95

New Zealand company Icebreaker is a staple in my family’s closet. You might think “oh no, not wool” but forget everything you know about wool. Icebreaker’s Merino wool is soft as a kitten and washes well in the machine. The material is naturally moisture-wicking and odor-resistant. My husband and I have about 4-5 of these each, as they are one of the most versatile, high-functioning pieces of ski clothing. They work for skiing, hiking and even apres. At 50% off, I suggest you stock up too! Get the socks too, while you’re at it. No more smelly post-ski socks, they are honestly amazing.

Völkl Touring Skis, Rise Beyond 96

This versatile German-made backcountry ski is not just a winner in the backcountry but handles well on piste as well. The 88 and the 96 are both best-selling skis, but the 96 is a bit wider underfoot, offering more buoyancy in the powder. The 96 is the 2022 model and at $489.97 (30% off) how can you go wrong?
