When it comes to skiing on storm days– there are a few pieces of gear that have the ability to transform great days into the “all-time” one’s we tell our grand kids.
So instead of getting foggy goggles, wet hands, or something even worse– a dead phone, we’ve provided a list of the 5 must-have items for any and all powder days. Whether it’s some reggae jams for that solo chair or a microfiber cloth to the keep those lenses dry, don’t head to the ski hill without these items on your person.
5 Must Have Items For The ANY Powder Day
5) The Spanky
Leave that crappy little microfiber sunglasses pouch at home and pick up The Spanky at your local ski shop instead. The Spanky is basically an oversized microfiber cloth that comes with a built-in trail map. When it comes to snowy days, there’s no better tool with which to wipe your lenses clean. Just never let it leave your chest pocket.
