Picking what to ride/wear to go up the mountain is always difficult, so we’ve made a gear guide for you. Wanna know what’s new and good for this season? Our Holiday gear guide includes some of our personal top picks from the best to ride to the best to wear, with features from Yeti, ThirtyTwo, SGV and more.
Thirty Two – Light Anorak
With the new 2023 Light Anorak JP took his decade plus experience of wearing ThirtyTwo outerwear and focused all his wisdom and passion into designing the perfect all terrain anorak. With 32 REPEL 15K fabrication, streamlined modern styling, and a Team Level Lining System JP’s light and lean design benchmarks a new approach in anorak design.
TM Pant (ThirtyTwo)
For 2023 the new TM Pant is made with 100% recycled polyester. Featuring our exclusive Reactor Mesh Thermo Responsive Lining and 3D Fleece Zonal Warming Panels the TM Pant with its Loose Fit sets the new benchmark for cold weather tech blended with modern mountain style.
Beaver Wax tuning kit
If you’d like to be self sufficient when it comes to waxing and tuning up your skis or snowboard, the Beaver Tune Kit has got everything you’ll need to hit the snow.
Fubuki NISEKO 2.0
Niseko 2.0 is the updated version of the original Niseko. This incredibly warm, incredibly durable, and incredibly lightweight snow boot will make you fall in love the second you open up the box. The strong EVA outer shell, in combination with the soft polyester liner, makes the boot difficult to compete with in terms of both comfort and isolation. Design-wise, the boot has been inspired by traditional, northern Japanese road worker/commercial fishing boots. In other words, although worn all year round by some people, this is definitely a boot made for harsh, snowy weather conditions.
Icebreaker mid layers
Midweight base layers are perfect for skiing, winter hiking, or cold-weather layering, the 260 Tech Leggings With Fly are a warmer version of our best-selling Oasis Leggings, made with 100% merino wool.
KM4K – HIZUME Glove
The HIZUME Glove, is inspired by the shape of the KAMSHIKA’s foot, which is the iconic symbol of our brand. You’ve probably seen gloves with separated index fingers before, right? But I think this glove with such a shape is the first of its kind in the world. Wondering what it’s good for? You can make the “vulcan salute” with it (dead language).
JIMMY CHIN X STANCE RISING SNOW OTC SOCKS
We created these socks alongside certified mountain man, Jimmy Chin. Knit with an ultralight Merino wool blend, these OTCs are destined for epic snow explorations.
WU TANG X STANCE PERFORMANCE WOOL SNOW OTC SOCKS
Enter Wu World with ski socks that are reinforced with Infiknit™ fibers in high-wear areas. Made with merino wool and our FEEL360™ tech, these OTCs wick away sweat and keep you heated, all day long.
Vans – HI-STANDARD PRO JILL PERKINS
Being the high-level member of the Hi-Standard family, the Hi-Standard Pro carries significant expectations. As the most iconic franchise in the Vans collection, it bears the responsibility of not only showcasing high performance but also delivering unmatched style. This latest embodiment of the legacy excels in both aspects. Enhanced with a complete suite of V2 components, advanced features such as PleasureCuff™ and PowerCuff Strap, and an aesthetic that exudes a rich heritage with a modern twist, the Hi-Standard Pro unquestionably stands as the most professional iteration of the Hi-Standard ever crafted.
Volcom Guide Jacket
Through rigorous field testing with the guide staff at Baldface Lodge, we developed a jacket with every detail crafted for use in the mountains. Purpose-built for touring missions, our GPT Guide-Proven Technology joins forces with the durability of the waterproof, windproof and breathable protection of a GORE-TEX 3-layer construction to avoid soak throughs and keep you riding for longer. The Volcom Guide GORE-TEX jacket is the go-to when you’re heading deep into the backcountry with fully-taped seams and a breathable tricot backing, its shell comes loaded with guide-approved tech features like radio and map pockets, Face Tech™ removable integrated mask and Recco® Advanced Rescue sensors. Pair with the GORE-TEX pant and layer with the Puff Puff Utility Jacket and Iguchi Slack Vest for gear you can put to the ultimate test. Snowcat not included.
Volcom 3L Gore-Tex bib
Our trusted 3L Gore-Tex bib gets an overhaul that builds upon its legacy as a highly functional and tactical brawler for big days in the backcountry, sidecountry, or resort. This piece is packed with features we’ve refined over decades of developing outerwear for winter missions, mini to mega, like the Zip Tech® jacket-to-pant interface, YKK® AquaGuard® water-repellent zippers, neoprene jersey at side waits, triple-reinforced rise, rugged black-flax reinforced hem and kick panels, and more.

Kangaroo pockets offer storage for phones, wallets, keys, or a little hot sauce so you have easy access for your must-haves.
