Spring skiing is on its way. Here’s a pic to inspire you…
It’s not quite spring yet, however, and more snow is coming. Snow conditions in the Rockies are currently the best they’ve been this season and this weekend, in Colorado at least, a big storm will dump more.
If you’ve been waiting to ski or snowboard, now’s the time to head up to your favorite resort or backcountry slope. Still need some gear? Online retailers are already starting to offer great end-of-season deals. You can get some cool stuff for cheap.
For your snow-sports shopping, start with Skis.com, one of the premier places to find a big selection of ski and snowboard gear online at good prices. And for boarders especially, try Seshday, a great flash sale site for all things board-related and anything to do with the riding lifestyle, for ridiculously low prices.
You also might want to browse some of my posts on the best winter equipment for skiing and more. Start with my review (now a couple of years old, but some of the recommended models still shred) of top-rated all-mountain skis. And check out Soul Poles, too.
And when you head up to the slopes, make sure your girl has a bikini, just in case.
