2015 Trends in Women’s Skis

Every year trends in the ski industry seem to point in the same direction, toward women. Women are undoubtedly a focus for many ski and outdoor gear companies as they make up nearly half of the participants. Brands like Head, Rossignol, Atomic and K2 have all released lines of women’s skis with engineering changes that lighten the ski but do not compromise ski stability. The heavier metal that sandwiched the wood core in the ski construction of yesteryear has been replaced with lighter synthetic materials and new concepts.

Comfortable Ski Boots Solved with Intuition Liners

Find the best skis for you

Our unique ski finder program allows you to find the best skis for you. If you are new to the sport or a seasoned shredder the choices can be daunting, with so many options, people often refer to ski shops as a “sea of top sheets”. Graphics are cool, but it is what’s inside that counts. Too many skiers are often trapped by what people recommend but that is not necessarily the best option for you. It is important to consider where you will be skiing, your experience level and what type of skiing you do.

Best Men’s Ski Gloves and Mittens Top Reviews 2013-14

A selection of the best men’s ski gloves available this season. We’ve gathered feedback on this years stock and found that there are some good options. In general, people still prefer the leather glove as the softer fabric provides more dexterity and is softer when wiping the powder shots off your face. Quality is important as a good glove can last more than a few seasons if they don’t fall apart. Expect to pay over $100 for the perfect pair and slightly less if you can find some on sale.

Best Mens Ski Helmets Reviews 2013-2014

A selection of the top Men’s helmets for this year. Listen, helmets aren’t the most exciting piece of equipment to buy. Unlike skis they will not make you ski better, but you need one and it certainly will allow you to go faster (and be safer). A good helmet can be found for under $100 but like anything in this sport you can easily spend upwards of a few hundred dollars on aerospace materials and audio systems. So for helmets, there is no one size fits all but buyers should focus on fit, style, safety records and warmth. For helmets, I prefer to buy from name brands who have the R&D budgets to properly design and test the materials.
