Some of our favorite winter stuff

1/ City Slicker
Waterproof, windproof wool has never looked as good as it does in Oregon-based designer Hillary Day’s Origami coat. Her secret? Schoeller’s c_change™ fabric. For the Origami coat, Rhode Island School of Design-trained Day (she apprenticed under Vera Wang) took inspiration from a vintage fur coat and updated it with a sculptural folded collar and wide cuffs. $625, hillaryday.com

2/ Head Case
Developed in collaboration with POC team athlete Aaron Blunck, the new, highly ventilated Auric helmet is lightweight while providing increased protection for the ears and temples. Best of all? Your beanie and goggles fit underneath it. $120,  Jackson Hole Sports, 7720 Granite Rd., Teton Village

3/ Hydro Flask
Thermoses are so twentieth century, and heavy. Hydro Flask comes in fun colors and their BPA-free, stainless steel, insulated bottles—from 12-ounce water bottles to a 64-ounce growler—are the lightest out there. It’s their food flasks, available in 12- and 18-ounce sizes, that we’re never without, though. While friends break out trail mix or a frozen bar, we’ve got hot soup. From $21.99, Skinny Skis, 65 W. Deloney

 

 

 

 

 

 

piqued_44/ Glory Be
The men’s and women’s models of Dakine’s new Heli Pro DLX 24L pack have different fits but share a smart design that carries skis (diagonally) or a snowboard (horizontally or vertically). Both come with a shovel pocket, a fleece-lined goggle pocket, and an insulated hydro sleeve. If there’s a better pack for the hike up
Mt. Glory, we have yet to find it. $110, dakine.com

5/ Classic Meets Contemporary
This season, Smith pairs its technologically advanced I/O 7 goggles—its dual-axis outrigger system and three-layer DriWix foam conform to your face without pinching, an AirEvac system interfaces with your helmet to reduce fogging, and its spherical Carbonic-X polycarbonate lens is designed using TLT optics, mirroring the shape of your eyes—with classic prints from Woolrich. $225, Jackson Hole Sports, 7720 Granite Rd., Teton Village

 

piqued_66/ A Perfect Parka
Stay warm and dry while storm skiing. Stio’s Shot 7 Insulated Jacket (available in men’s and women’s) combines 800-fill HyperDRY™ water-repellent down with a waterproof/breathable outer layer, pit zips, a removable powder skirt, and helmet-compatible hood. Tell us it’s not the ski jacket of this season. $550, 10 E. Broadway Ave.

 

 

 

 

 

 

piqued_77/ Dual Personality
Mammut’s Trea pants feature stretch, water-resistant Schoeller® and Dyneema® ski-edge protection. Combine these with integrated gaiters, articulated knees, and side ventilation and you’ve got the best backcountry ski pants around. Or maybe the best mountaineering pants around. $300, mammut.com

8/ Jackson-Tough
Winner of Powder Magazine Skier’s Choice, Backcountry Magazine Editors’ Choice, and Ski Magazine Gold Medal Gear, Dynastar’s Cham 2.0 97 seems made for Jackson Hole. Its moderate tip rocker, traditional camber, and sidecut proportions can handle most anywhere on the mountain. $800, dynastar.com

 

piqued_99/ Foot-Friendly
Designed by a former ski racer, Apex’s new ML-3 (women’s) and MC-3 (men’s) boots feature a unique two-part system—a Walkable Support Boot that locks into an Open Chassis. The boots won “2016 fitter’s favorite” and “2016 innovator” awards from the group America’s Best Bootfitters. Walking around the base area, or to the slopes, wear just the Support Boot, which has an outsole with serious traction. When it’s time to ski, lock the Support Boot into its Open Chassis, step into your bindings, tighten up the boot’s Boa® Focus Closure System, and you’ll feel more connected to your skis (and more comfortable) than ever before. $795, apexskiboots.com
