Perfect Gifts for the Boarder, Skier or Budding Snow Babe

[/mk_fancy_title][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″]There is nothing like being kitted out with the latest and greatest gear when you hit the slopes for the holidays.  And just as skis have gone from narrow wooden planks to cambered and rockered fiberglass marvels of science, slope-specific accessories have evolved from barely practical to luxurious.  So why not get stocking stuffers your loved ones will love and use on your winter getaway?

To get choice selections of the sweetest gear, we asked staff at The Banff Ski Hub – your one-stop-shop for everything from rental gear to accessories of all sorts – for their top stocking stuffer picks.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column border_color=”” visibility=”” width=”1/6″][mk_social_networks size=”medium” style=”rounded” margin=”4″ border_color=”#cccccc” bg_color=”” bg_hover_color=”#232323″ icon_color=”#3399cc” icon_hover_color=”#eeeeee” align=”right” facebook=”https://www.facebook.com/SkiBig3″ twitter=”http://twitter.com/skibig3″ rss=”” dribbble=”” digg=”” pinterest=”” flickr=”” google_plus=”” skype=”” instagram=”https://instagram.com/skibig3″ linkedin=”” blogger=”” youtube=”” last_fm=”” stumble_upon=”” soundcloud=”” tumblr=”” vimeo=”” wordpress=”” yelp=”” reddit=”” xing=”” imdb=”” qzone=”” renren=”” vk=”” wechat=”” weibo=”” whatsapp=”” el_class=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row fullwidth=”false” attached=”false” padding=”0″ visibility=”” animation=””][vc_column border_color=”” visibility=”” width=”1/1″][mk_fancy_title tag_name=”h2″ style=”false” color=”#393836″ size=”25″ font_weight=”inherit” font_style=”inhert” letter_spacing=”0″ margin_top=”15″ margin_bottom=”18″ font_family=”none” align=”left”]

Smith has come out with helmet speakers so sleek every boarder who is into tunes or tech (so basically everyone) will want one!  Two small disks that slide over the ears and are activated by a single tap – the Universal Wireless Helmet Audio Chips are a big ticket item at $150.  If the price tag is too steep, pick up the wired version for just $50.

The RC boot bag

[/mk_fancy_title][mk_circle_image src=”https://www.skibig3.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/BootBag_C4A5015.jpg” image_diameter=”500″][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″]

Let’s face it: ski boots are uncomfortable.  This means skiers generally wait until the last possible moment to strap them on which involves awkwardly carrying them around while juggling poles, skis, gloves, goggles…  So make their arrival on the slopes smoother:  give them a boot bag.  It will help contain the chaos.

These helmets come in such sweet colors – they are as much fashion statement as they are safety equipment.  Pick one up for $85 in our favorite shades: ultraviolet or opal (above).

These face covers protect every inch of your little one’s faces that isn’t under their googles.

(Price $20)
