With an astonishing wonderland of snow lining California’s mountains this season, it’s no surprise that many manufacturers of ski technology are taking advantage of the new developments in winter sports equipment that makes your trip to the slopes safer and more fun.
For those who will brave the chilly conditions that aren’t usually found on the sunny beaches of Southern California, a number of new products will warm and protect you from the immensely fun yet bone-chillingly cold conditions it takes to have a truly awesome winter vacation. If you’re heading out this season, check out these great products before you go:
- Instant Adjust Goggles by Zeal: These goggles rapidly adjust to the time of day or night you’re on the slopes based on available light, allowing light transfer from 33 percent to 18 percent, depending on conditions. The polarized lens reduces glare and keeps the colors of the environment bright and vivid. Starting at $240.
- Graphene Skis: Graphene is one of the most exciting new materials developed in the past decade, as this extremely light carbon fiber is stronger than steel and lighter than aluminum. And now manufactures are starting to apply graphene to the planks on your feet, giving them the strength to tackle any slope and the confidence to face them. Starting at $800.
- Osprey Ozone Carry-On: This sleek and stylish yet compact and durable bag packs a punch in the way it manages to pack in your gear for the slopes, and have enough portability to get through even the most discriminating security checkpoints and carry-on standards.
