The Best Ski and Snowboard Gear for Winter 2014

Hit the slopes in style with the best alpine accessories of the year.

A quality down jacket will run you a pretty price tag, but it’s worth every penny when you can transition from warm to cold conditions and wear the same outer layer the entire time. Burton’s 2L LZ Down Snowboard Jacket ($600, has 650-fill down that keeps you extra toasty in single-digit temps. Wear it as a ski jacket too—it’s easily the best all-mountain coat of the year. Why? The Gore-Seam Gore-Tex fabric is fully waterproof and incredibly breathable, so your skin stays warm and dry, and your body temp stays regulated. Vents prevent overheating, and the fit hugs your core so you have unrestricted movement down the slopes.
