Stocking Stuffers for Skiers?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

What do you give as stocking stuffers for the skiers on your list? Please give me some (last-minute) ideas for my sweetie and kids!

Goggles, gloves, socks, neck up, can of wax with built in applicator, coupon for a tune up, hand warmers, smallish multi tool for the pocket or bag, boot driers, diamond stone, magazine subscription, book on the history of your favorite mtn., cool zipper pulls, DVD's, .....these are a few of my favorite things smile.gif

Platypuss, wax, p-tex,  scrapers, misc tuning supplies, neck gators, etc..

Nice suggestions! Much better than my usual gift of an oversupply of Chapstick from Costco. I know my hubby would love some GPS goggles, how much would those set me back? (An idle question, b/c I'm not providing him any more reasons to run into a tree!)

The zippo handwarmer is pretty sweet. It's about 20 bucks and much cooler than those grit bags.

 

The Zeal Transcend GPS goggles are $500. This year they also have "Recon Ready" goggles that should be much cheaper. You could buy the goggles and then add the GPS later. I know Uvex and a couple other brands make them. I think the "Mod" GPS unit is $300.

 

Frankly, I think for the money, you'd be better off getting a cam with built in GPS (Contour GPS looks particularly good). $500 for goggles is way overpriced, imo.

A thin, synthetic skullcap or tuque. Covers the ears, works alone or as a helmet liner, fits easily in a shirt pocket or inner jacket pocket, and doesn't cost much.

Let's scale back -- how about stocking stuffers $30 and less?

How about an Epicski vest?  smile.gif

 

Goggle squeegie, easily accessible/clip on.   

 

Under Armour Headliner/baclava.  I tried a bunch of them, like this the best, about $25-30

 

Can't go wrong with Smartwool socks.

I'm going to shamelessly self promote here - but I do think The Powder Bible is a great (and hassle-free) Xmas gift for the ski lover. http://powderbible.com

I come in under nolo's $30, plus enter the code 'epic' at checkout for a $5 Barking Bear discount.

A SkiSling? comes in under the $30 cap if converted. http://www.skisling.com
