Bergans Myrkdalen Shell
The Myrkdalen is soft and supple weather-proofing for the coldest resort days, but it also features backcountry-friendly diagonal pit zips and articulated elbows. Matching pants zip into the jacket.
Giro Strata MIPS Helmet
The Strata fits courtesy of a one-hand vertical adjustment system. It also features MIPS, the Multi-Directional Impact Protection System, which, in a crash, lets the helmet slide relative to your head, lessening impact. Plus: salmon.
Giro Facet Goggles
Wear the Facets when you want to see what’s beside you as well as what’s in front. Their Expansion View Technology wraps comfortably around your eyes, and their Carl Zeiss lens enhances your bump-finding ability.
Stio Basis Power Dry Tight
These long undies made of a 75 poly/25 wool blend are soft, stretchy, and toasty warm.
Darn Tough Women’s Yeti Ski Socks
The seamless Yetis have just enough cushioning on the bottom for comfort, plus super soft, wicking, antimicrobial Merino wool that refuses to stink or stretch out.
Arc’teryx Satoro Zip Neck LS
This zip neck, made with a wool-nylon blend, is so soft you’ll want to sleep in it. But it’s a tech piece: Merino wool wraps nylon filaments, wicking moisture and boosting durability.
Trew Chariot Bibs
The Chariot Bibs offer a slightly slender fit, repel elements with a Dermizax membrane (2-plus times more breathable than Gore-Tex Performance Shell according to Trew), and never show your long underwear.
Marmot Furiosa 1/2 Zip
The Furiosa is a layering piece that doubles as stand-alone jacket. Jersey stretch fleece in the core insulates, and ripstop insulation across the chest and shoulders fights wear and weather.
