Snow is coming, and all of you ski bums know what that means! Not only is it time to make your reservations for some of that fresh powder, but it’s also time to check out the latest equipment for this season. Come on…it’s time to face it, to look good on the slopes these days it takes a little bit more than being able to pull off a 360º off axis mute grab. Ok, maybe it doesn’t but you still need to look good back in the lodge when you’re not airborne.

This season, 66º North has a variety of outerwear for you in order to look your Nordic best. The Thà³rsmörk Parka from 66º North is sure to keep you toasty warm even in the harshest white out conditions. Not only will you be nice and warm but you’ll look great dog sledding through the back country.


Founded in 1926 and the national clothing brand of Iceland 66º, North knows a thing or two about keeping warm.

Also don’t forget you’re going to need to dress the part for a little Apres Ski! Ibex has just what you’ll need for the post downhill party. The Norgie crew really shows a little bit of modern fashion mixed in with the rugged outdoors functionality.


Ibex also has hats and base layers all made from the finest Merino wool from New Zealand. The Woolies baselayer is sure to keep you warm even on the most brutal days that skiing in the Northeast has to offer. Made from Merino wool Ibex gear is antimicrobal which helps to prevent that sweat soaked smell your clothes used to get after a long day on the slopes.

No matter what your experience level is grab some gear and get out there this Winter! See you at the bottom of the slopes!
