The Best Ski Gear to Buy Now, According to Experienced Skiers (and Designers)

Hit the slopes with these designer-approved picks—from spiffy stroller-turned-ski-pulks to ultra comfy NASA–developed boots.

I’ve been skiing since I was seven, and I can honestly say my Full Tilts are by far the most comfortable ski boots I’ve owned. Until I got these boots a few years ago, I thought comfortable ski boots was an oxymoron. Plus, they have a great backstory. Their innovative shell first came out in the ’70s and ’80s under Raichle, having been created by two former NASA employees using concepts developed for spacesuits. They use Intuition liners, which form to your feet. Intuition is a Vancouver-based company and the leader in this technology. What’s not to love? They’re pretty f***ing amazing. en-ca.fulltiltboots.com

We are big cross-country skiers, as is our whole family, and the Thule Cross Country Skiing and Hiking Kit is an awesome year-round stroller that has an attachment to convert their child carrier into a cross-country ski pulk. thule.com

I think I’ll pick my new bindings, the G3 Zeds—they’re actually just coming out this fall, but I had a chance to use a pair for a while. Such a great light new touring binding. mec.ca

I ride a Jones Flagship 165 wide. I love it because the shape and edge design make shredding even easier and more fun. Plus, the top veneer is white oak, and as a woodworker, I couldn’t resist. jonessnowboards.com
