The latest ski gear on the block inspired us to hit the slopes

Winter is here, and just like that, so is Outdoor Retailer’s Snow Show, taking place this week in Denver, Colorado. But like so much in the pandemic era, the show is laced with a sense of caution that was not felt the last time the event took place, on sunny January 2020.

Whether brands are sharing their products virtually or in person, however, the rise of Omicron isn’t stopping the outdoor world from showcasing the best and brightest items available now, soon or for the upcoming winter season. 22-23.

We see a selection of ski-centric gear, apparel and accessories that truly pushes the boundaries when it comes to sustainability, innovation and inclusiveness. If this little roundup of highlights is any indication, next winter is already a bright spot on the horizon.
