SMITH PRODIGY GOGGLE
PRICE: $160

Part of the Turbo Fan Series, this goggle features a silent micro-electronic fan that eliminates fog. If conditions get really extreme, turn it up to the second speed to clear your field of view in a cinch. For the savvy skier who wants to look good while launching off bumps, you can opt for the goggle in black, grey, or white. (Available at St. Bernard Sports or

GARMIN GPS- MAP 60CSX
PRICE: $499.95
This handheld GPS device comes with a standard map, but you can upload additional topographical maps for the U.S. or Canada, too. An automatic track log acts like a breadcrumb trail—it records your steps and allows you to retrace them easily. The quad-helix antenna picks up a signal quickly even in the densest foliage, and a large color display makes it easy to read in bright snow conditions. (Available at REI or

ACR TERRAFIX 406 GPS I/O PERSONAL LOCATOR BEACON
PRICE: $699

Safety comes first. Before traipsing off to conquer the snowy wilds, don’t forget this potentially lifesaving device. Stuck in an avalanche? Just set off the distress signal and it will broadcast your GPS latitude and longitude coordinates to help search and rescue crews find exactly where you are within 100 meters. Sturdy and reliable, this water-resistant beacon works at minus 20 degrees Celsius and will transmit continuously for over 24 hours. (Available at REI or

K2 APACHE OUTLAW SKIS
PRICE: $1,150
(right)
Whether you’re seeking off-piste adventures or casual carving at your favorite ski resort, these all-mountain skis have you covered. A moderately thick width and progressive sidecut contours make these versatile skis capable in powder, crud, or packed snow. The metal laminate construction offers just enough stiffness for agile movement while the wood core provides the natural flexibility needed for full contact with the snow.
