Gift Basket Ideas for Snowboarders and Skiers (Part II)

Every snowboarder and skier needs a good snow helmet.

Men’s Giro Nine MIPS Snow Helmet

Snowsports are no walk in the park. They are much more fun. Though, with downhill thrills, you have to think about safety. 

This year, gift a powder-obsessed individual in your life the redesigned Nine snow helmet from Giro. This stylish helmet has MIPS technology, which aids in reducing rotational forces if the helmet gets hit at an angle.

The Nine helmet can fit goggles and heads of various shapes thanks to its internal height adjustment. Also, the thermostat venting controls offer custom breathability to keep cool heads. Choose the color that will look best with their gear.

Men’s Patagonia Snowshot Jacket

For snowsports lovers, this jacket offers the most. Crafted for freeriding mobility, the waterproof, breathable Snowshot lets riders slip through the season’s lows and highs in total comfort.

Warm outside and in. On the outside is a sturdy water repellent finish that keeps the outer layer from becoming saturated. On the inside is a mesh lining that keeps away sweat and goes smoothly over layers.

This Snowshot jacket possesses zippered features galore: pit zips for fast venting, zippered chest pockets with media pocket, and zippered handwarmer pockets. 

Outdoor Tech Wired Chips Universal Helmet Audio System

A powder day warrants an epic soundtrack. Keep the good tunes going with the Wired Chips audio system that fits into any snowboard or ski helmet. It contains an audio liner, like Giro, Bern, Bolle, Smith, Anon, PRO-TEC and others. Nothing exalts a beautiful day on the slopes like your fav playlist.

With the Wired Chips system, glove-friendly mic and inline controls let you crank tunes, mute and answer calls without ever taking off your gloves or helmet. The housing enriches in-helmet acoustics, producing a solid hi-fi experience. It comes with a user manual, carry pouch and stickers.
