Obviously, the #1 holiday gift is an Orsden Ski Jacket. Once you have yours though, you'll need some items to go with it. Below are our 5 picks for the best complements for your Orsden jacket.
Parlor Skis, from $950
Boston-based Parlor Skis are customized for you. From the flex and camber to the graphics. Even more awesome, you can sign your skier up for one of their ski building classes. We have a pair of custom Orsden-designed skis waiting for us under our tree and can't wait to hit the slopes with them.
Swany, X-Cell II Gloves, $140
The leather shell, tri-plex insulation, and waterproof/breathable insert keep fingers warm and dry regardless of the conditions. These gloves hold up incredibly well too, so will last for many winters to come.
APRÈS & FIRESIDE
Eisbär Hat, from $54.99
These fine-quality hats made for the Austrian Ski Team for decades will keep you warm and in style after your helmet comes off. Choose your look from fur pompoms to traditional stripes. Plus, we always love a good bear logo.
Tecnica Moon Boot, $120
A personal favorite of our founder, these water-resistant boots will not only keep your feet toasty, but it's also hard not to smile when you put them on. Fun note about them, there's no right or left. They're both the same, which allows for a super quick transition from ski boot to Moon Boot.
Von Trapp Farms Oma Cheese, $14/8 oz + Prohibition Pig Beer, Mini Crowler, $8
For the foodie skier, this Vermont combo (Stowe-area to be exact) makes the perfect après snack. The Oma is described by Von Trapp Farms as original and distinctive. We just call it delicious. Prohibition Pig makes great local brews and you can pick up a Crowler (can/growler hybrid) or 2 or check out any of their other wares.
Why aren't there any ski pants you ask? Good question. Because Orsden Ski Pants are in the works for next season, so you should hold onto your old pants until then. Stay tuned for more...
