Holiday Gifts Ideas

What does a shredder want for Christmas? The answer likely goes something like “open borders, flights to Japow and some serious big snow equipment”.

Read below to see what our staff members are hoping to see under their christmas tree!

SEASON EQPT FORMA SNOWBOARD

I am really excited about this brand new company created by freeskiing legend Eric Pollard and snowboard lord Austin Sweetin. The Nexus is said to be reasonably stiff, stable, agile, and is designed to float in fresh pow. I imagine that this board will be perfect for first lifts when the pow is fresh, and once it’s tracked out it will be stable enough to carve the groomers and the rest of the mountain. I can’t wait to get on one! – Matt

SUUNTO SPARTAN SMARTWATCH

It’s great for ski touring, and I’m not going to lie, I love statistics! The stats keep me motivated to do more throughout winter, and also the navigation features will help me keep track of my adventures – Hannah

GOPRO HERO 9

From what I’ve heard the in camera stabilization is next level, and it is by far the best GoPro yet. Also I lost my GoPro Hero 7 in the Shiribetsu River over summer, so I really do need this! – Chris

MARKER KINGPIN CRAMPONS  

It’ll make summiting Mt Yotei that much easier! They clip straight into my Kingpin 13 ski touring binding and really come in handy when skinning on wind affected or icy snow, which sometimes happens on Hokkaido’s higher peaks – Robbie

ARMADA x OYUKI ARV JJ UL

After a strange coronavirus summer I am keener than ever to get out and smash pow, and these are the weapons that I want to do it on! I would be especially stoked if santa includes a pair of Salomon Shift tech point bindings and some G3 universal climbing skins too, so I can use them as my resort and ski touring set up – Jimmy

NISEKO 5 PANEL HAT

All I want for Christmas is a new hat, enough said! – Sherry
