Great new ski gear
If you’re in an avalanche, the last thing you want to do is fumble with your safety beacon. That’s why the simplicity of the Ortovox Zoom Beacon – there’s only two buttons – is worth noting. One dial turns it on and off, the other flips it into search mode. Triple-antenna technology sweeps the area to detect the direction and distance of people buried, while an easy-to-read LED display is legible in bright light or pitch black conditions. $265; mec.ca
When sunny days make way for snow, sleet and slush, it’s time to break out La Sportiva’s StormFighter GTX Jacket. Made from lightweight, breathable Gore-Tex fabric, it is completely waterproof and comes with an adjustable hood and fleece chin guard to protect against brisk winds. Slide the adjustable Velcro-less cuffs into your gloves for added warmth. $379 (U.S.); sportiva.com
Keep your digits extra toasty in Mountain Hardwear’s Jalapeno Mitts. Designed to fit more delicate female hands (there’s also a men’s version), the insulated goatskin leather gloves have a durable outer layer. Kevlar stitching allows for maximum dexterity when shushing down the slopes or getting your gear off and on the chair lift. $130; mountainhardwear.com
