Some days are crushingly cold and sloppy. Bring the right equipment and you won’t suffer.

1 Columbia OutDry Ex Mogul Jacket

When the snow is ripping sideways, you’ll need a sturdy shield to block the freeze. Constructed from a composite material with a waterproof exterior and a wicking inner fabric, Columbia’s jacket can keep you going long after your friends have bailed.
$450

2 Line Soulmate 92

Versatile, do-it-all skis are a must if you don’t know whether the next run will involve ice, death cookies, mashed potatoes, or some combo of it all. An array of prestretched carbon-­fiber filaments inside the Soulmate’s all-­mountain planks adds strength, spring, and responsiveness to every turn.
$625

3 Snow Peak Titanium Flask

There are many moments during a crap-weather day when sipping whiskey from an expensive titanium flask improves the overall experience. Deploy this 5-ouncer while waiting for the chairlift, riding it, or growing impatient when it stalls.
$160

4 POC Auric Cut Backcountry SPIN

POC’s lid for daredevils has a series of impact-­absorbing
silicone pads embedded in the liner. They help protect your brain from the rotational forces that are unleashed when you wipe out and bounce off an icy mogul. Plus it’s super warm!
$220

5 Dakine Fillmore Trigger Mitt

Mittens are the warmer choice, but manipulating buckles and zippers while wearing them? Hard nope. Dakine’s mitts free up your index finger to maintain just enough dexterity. A conductive fingertip lets you text without dropping a glove from the chairlift.
$55
