For Show-Offs

Want to rock the powder old-school style? You'll be in the zone all winter with these all-wooden skis. Available for the first time in North America, the Austrian-made Heidiskis are 100 percent tip-to-tail wood cores with a backbone of mature Swiss white ash, which lends both flexibility and strength. They've got extra-wide steel edges, ABS sidewalls, and carbon-reinforced mounts. But let's be honest: They also look awesome, with custom designs like this Red Dragon pattern. In fact, they're so hot you will need to don a pair of Spy Optic Bias snow goggles (at center of skis), preferably with camo Masquerade fronts. Like all Spy Optic goggles, Bias has a quick-release custom strap buckle, 100 percent UV protection, and a patented ventilation system that eliminates "I can't see where I'm going" fogging.
