Traction: Kahtoola microspikes, nanospikes or exospikes are great for walking around town or for hiking Mt. Hunger.

Base layers: Patagonia Cap Air sweaters keep you cozy all winter long. Outdoor Research Cirque II outerwear pants are breathable, stretchy, water-resistant, wind-proof pants that are great for outdoor exploring. Reinforced cuffs and a built-in gaiter for snowy adventures.

Skis: Whether you slide on skis, glide on a snowboard, float in snowshoes, or crunch with traction crampons over the stuff, it’s nice to have a favorite piece of gear to keep you moving over ice and powder alike. We recommend the Liberty Genesis 96 Skis because of their lightweight, flexible, all-mountain versatility.
Puffy coat: Keep your core warm this winter with an insulated coat. We like the Outdoor Research Super strand LT Jacket for this, since it’s filled with the softest, most compressible synthetic down—and it comes in mens, womens and plus size.
Warm Gloves: For many people, their hands feel the cold before the rest of them. Keep warm and dry with Flylow Unicorn Mitts.
Headlamp: Bring light to the evenings with a headlamp. Extend your adventures by an extra hour with Petzl Tikka Headlamp. It’s affordable lightweight, and bright.
