Ski Magazine Gear Guide 2019

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! The leaves are turning and there’s a hint of snow on the top of the mountains.

The new SKI Magazine Gear Guide 2019 is fresh off the press. Time to get the scoop on what’s new, what’s different, what’s the coolest ski gear for the upcoming season.

And, once again, you can rely on the words of wisdom from Bob Gleason, founder of the Bootdoctors. As Bob tells it, he has the best job in the world as a gear tester for SKI magazine. He says,

”To ski all the next season’s skis tuned to perfection with a gang of rippers is such a thrill. I love to translate what I feel in my feet into words which clearly help folks make the best ski choices.”

Does custom bootfitting make a difference? See what the experts at SKI Magazine say below.

Here’s to a great season dancing down the slopes with the very best gear especially for you!
