This holiday season we have you covered, from the perfect powder skis to the ultimate in tasty treats. Here are a few of our favorite things to help you check everyone off your holiday gift list.
This winter Oakley launched their Prizm Inferno, a revolutionary heated lens technology developed to combat goggle fogging and improve performance by enhancing rider vision. This new lens is compatible with Oakley’s Line Miner goggle to deliver you an unbeatable setup. The Prizm Inferno let’s you stop worrying about fogged goggles and start focusing on your line.
If goggles aren’t your thing, be sure to check out Oakley’s WindJacket 2.0, a unique goggle-like sunglass. The 2.0 offers wind protection, prizm lenses and versatility on and off the mountain. Learn more about the Prizm Inferno & WindJacket 2.0 and purchase here.
Our guides encounter the full spectrum of conditions each winter which requires rugged gear. Each of our guides rely on the Marmot La Meije Jacket and Pants to get them through multiple seasons. Both are made with 3 layer GORE-TEX, guaranteed to keep you warm. The La Meije kit integrates into everyday skiing and big mountain adventures. Both options come in a variety of colors and have burly zippers. Pair the La Meije with the Ultimate Ski Glove to deliver waterproof and windproof warmth without bulk. Learn more and purchase here.
It can be a difficult task to find one ski that delivers in powder, chop and hard pack, but the Atomic Backland FR 109 does just that. It is built for charging in the deep snow (did someone say heli-skiing?) with total confidence but is stable even on harder terrain. It’s a great one-ski quiver. Looking for something a little fatter? Check out the Backland FR 117, a popular choice among Helitrax clients. Don’t worry, Atomic didn’t forget about the ladies either. The Backland WMN FR 109 is the ladies version and performs at a high level. Your ultimate powder day awaits. Learn more and purchase here.
With safety at the forefront of our operation, we turn to Mammut to provide us with the best in snow safety. Each of our clients uses their Pulse Barryvox beacon which allows for easy single, or multiple, burial searches. The basic user profile allows for simplicity while more experienced users can activate an advanced profile to solve problems in multiple burials. No matter your skill level, the Pulse is our recommendation.
In addition to beacons, we now offer all of our clients airbag packs, free of charge. If you are on the hunt for the best packs out there, we recommend Mammut’s Ultralight Removable Airbag 3.0 or the Pro Protection Airbag 3.0. The Ultralight model is perfect companion ay time light weight is a priority while the Pro Protection offers more durability and space and is a favorite of our guides. You can’t go wrong either way. Purchase here.
Baked in our home state of Colorado, Bobo’s are the perfect go-to snack for every skier. They are not only delicious, but calorically-dense with an ingredient label you can trust. They come in two perfect sizes, bars and bites, for any length winter adventure. We love all their flavors, but especially the Almond Butter, Gingerbread and Coconut for over the holidays. The best part? Bobo’s never freeze. Purchase here.
