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 spring gear guide includes some of our personal top picks from the best to ride to the best to wear, with features from Salmon Arms, POW Mitts, Trinsic Optics, Sims Snowboards and more.

Sims – Solo

There’s nothing fishy about the Sims Solo Snowboard, it’s based on a proven shape from 1985 (the FE) but built with the best of modern materials and production techniques to produce one of the finest powder boards on planet Earth. The long tapered nose and V-Tail Directional tail are an unmistakable sign of this board’s intent to surf the deepest snow, and while it may not be the board to use day-in and day-out, the rush of riding it on those bottomless days will be hard to match.

Sims – NUB

Can you see it? The way the nose of the Sims Nub Snowboard splits the difference between blunt and pointy, between pow and park, between smooth and smoother? This long-nosed twin just begs to be launched, buttered, and ridden with eyes closed (and soul open). There’s just something about it, it’s impossible to overlook. The Nub levitates in deep snow, that perfect nose leading the way towards natural hits and creative lines. The inserts are centered in the camber, though, so you’re never at a loss for power or switch riding. There’s a reason the Sims team is so hyped on this thing: Nub!
