The latest must-have equipment for the slopes
With the latest Völkl Mantra skis ($699, vikingskishop.com), “you’ll float better on the snow,” says Chicago’s Viking Ski Shop owner Bob Olson. They have turned-up tips and tails, a 100-millimeter waist, and vertical sidewalls.
Burton’s new directional twin snowboard ($500, burton.com) is ideal for freestyle riding in powder. Props to the eco-friendly design, too: a wood core made from sustainable materials and a top sheet made entirely from recycled Mountain Dew products.
