As winter approaches, skiers and snowboarders will inevitably dive into plastic storage containers with the hopes of finding long-lost boots, beanies, and whatever else ski season requires.

It’s in this moment, that we realize how ill prepared our gear is for winter. However, that doesn’t mean you need to fill up the trash can with three year-old outerwear. Instead, bring your old gear (and education) back to life with these 5 low-budget items.

Who knows– one of these might even save your life.

Nikwax TX.Direct Spray-On Waterproofing


The only thing worse than getting wet on the chairlift is buying a new outerwear kit for $600. So prior to ski season, break out those old ski pants and jacket and give them a fresh coat of NikWax TX.Direct Spray-On waterproofing. Unofficial tests found that the spray on provides a longer lasting waterproofing than the wash-in formula.

DEMON Skis snowboards tune up kit



For less than $20 you can get yourself a nice starter kit that will allow you to take your first steps to becoming your very own ski tech. However, we recommend you spring a few extra bucks and get Dakine’s compact, cheap, and user-friendly tuning kit. So forget that $55 dollar full tune and do it yourself before the season gets going.

Sno-Seal Wax


Bring your leather Kinco’s back to life with a fresh coat of SNO-SEAL prior to getting out on the hill. The wax will keep your hands warm and dry all winter. Also, you won’t have to buy gloves made in China for $100+ bucks.

NOSO Puffy Patches

The video says it all. Patch up that puffy or shell and never have to replace that half-assed duct tape job ever again.

Snow Sense


Snow Sense is the perfect refresher for anyone who has completed an Avalanche 1 Course. That said, it’s not a proper substitute for an AIARE certified avalanche class. #KBYG
