Spring Break Skiing: Time to hit the slopes
A rugged Bluetooth speaker perfect for skiing- it’s about the size of a racquet ball and delivers powerful audio for those in search of something ultra-portable for their snow and water sport adventures. The Swimmer Jr ensures you’ll have the perfect soundtrack to your skiing, wakeboarding, and snowboarding adventures.
Don’t be misled that a drop in temperature means you can skip the sunscreen—the snow can reflect and intensify the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays directly onto your skin. Here’s a sunscreen designed specifically for active use, even in extreme outdoor conditions. It won’t clog pores and protects the skin in and out of water and while exposed to harsh sun and heat. Be sure to apply sunscreen at least 15 minutes before you head outside.
Ski safe with FlipBelt’s new Zipper Edition. A wider pocket allows slope essentials like ID, cash, credit cards, phone, and other valuables to be comfortably stored. The zipper sealing ensures that they will not fall out when you wipe out. The belt fits snuggly around your waist making it easy to hide away.
No one wants cold hands. This could be your saving grace. Slide the Zippo 6-Hour Hand Warmer into your pocket and enjoy the outdoors! Zippo's 6-Hour Hand Warmer has a thin design that easily fits into pockets. It’s virtually odorless, offering users gentle, consistent heat. It’s also refillable, so you can use it for years to come – no more waste associated with disposable warmers.
These colorful leggings are a must-have after a long day of skiing--you want to put on something comfy. These leggings can be used for anything - from a warm base-layer in your skiing outfit, or alone for a cute outing for dinner. Pick a design that matches your fave team or just one that is fun and funky.
If it’s not snowing, you might not need goggles and you might choose to wear sunglasses instead. These are a revolutionary line of premium fit-over sunglasses whose superior sun protection, and advanced lens and frame technology are just what your eyes need. The frames are durable and fashionable, too. The sun is just as strong in the winter months, especially when enjoying winter sports like skiing and sun glare is maximized by the snow.
GetOutfitted.com is the Texas skier’s solution to all things gear. Who wouldn’t rather rent gear online and simply have it delivered to the destination with a postage-paid return box to ship it all back when done? Simply choose your items (from the bottom layer of long johns, to mid and top layers, and even accessories like gloves and goggles) from the website and look for it at your destination when you arrive.
