As we were pulling together the annual WildSnow holiday gift list, we realized the same items were coming to the table: Darn Tough socks, Ski Journal, Spot Messenger, Dynafit Radicals, tickets for two to a far away chalet…
But here at WildSnow we strive to give you more. Instead of lackluster ideas, we want to inspire you to reach new heights — on mountains and in the largest robotic shipping centers on the planet.
As we rushed around getting ready for our Thanksgiving ski trip to Canada, no new ideas came. The pressure intensified like a shrieking espresso machine. Black Friday loomed.
Then this morning we stumbled out of bed. At 4:00 a.m. we rushed to the airport, only to sit on the runway for three hours waiting out the weather. As the mist cleared, so did our minds. The ideas streamed in. Thanks to SkyMall here is the 2013 WildSnow list of best gifts ever for the beloved backcountry traveler in your life.
While most of the WildSnow backcountry skiing blog posts are best attributed to a single author, some work well as done by the group.
