Skiing Gear Guides

Here's everything you need to know about selecting and buying ski equipment and ski clothing, from what to buy, where to buy it, and where to find the best deals on skis, boots, and accessories.


Choosing the right skis for you depends on a number of factors, such as your age/gender, skiing ability, or location. Here's more about buying, choosing, and maintaining skis.

Ski Boots

Your ski boots need to fit you well and feel comfortable. Here's how to buy ski boots, along with reviews of the best ski boot brands for all levels and types of skiers.

Ski Clothing

There's no question that good ski goggles should be an essential on everybody's skiing checklist, especially in the cold and high wind of mid-winter. Save those cool sunglasses for a little later in the season, and make sure your goggles and lenses are clean and clear.

Ski Helmets

A ski helmet isn't just an accessory - it's a necessary part of your skiing wardrobe. Because ski helmets can save you from serious injury, there is no excuse not to wear a helmet. Also, helmets can look cool and sleek, too.

Ski Accessories

Ski accessories for men, women, and children, including ski helmets, poles, goggles, and other accessories.

Rent Ski Equipment

When you're a beginning skier or just trying out the sport to decide if it's the right one for you, it makes sense to rent ski equipment. Once you're sure that you're going to spend enough time on the slopes to justify buying ski equipment (which can be expensive) you can invest in your own ski gear.
