Perfect For: The Ski Rock Star

It can be a pain to haul ski gear on the plane, but the value of having the best equipment on the slope is pretty compelling. From right: These Head Monster skis are geared to aggressive riders who like to break off the groomed trails and head for deep powder. The reinforced sidewalls and shape mean you'll be fine in East Coast ice, too. If you're looking to up your game, these are among the best skis on the market. The Roxy gal hits the slopes in mad style with these twin tips designed for those who want big airs and don't mind landing hard. Bouncy, light, and killer cute. Lastly, no matter your skill level, you'd best protect your noggin. The Smith Sports Holt Helmet is made out of supertough ABS plastic, and the design maximizes the flow of air so your goggles won't fog. See, cooler heads do prevail.
