Fall is here, and it’s time to start getting ready for this year’s ski and snowboard season. Before you know it, the powder will be coming down hard and you’ll be on the hunt for new gear. Much like the realms of fashion and technology, the game is constantly changing when it comes to both looking and performing your best. There are plenty of new goodies out there this season; so no matter if you’re shopping for sleek new outerwear or you’re in the market for a new board, you’ll find what you need to keep on point.
Authier’s outerwear is always impressive, and its 2016–2017 collection hits the mark again.

Canada Goose Borden Bomber
Canada Goose jackets are always a safe bet when it comes to looking stylish on the slopes, and though we’ve all seen a million of its standard black parkas, the brand makes an effort to stay on trend. Bomber jackets have been all the rage since spring, and this hybrid parka-meets-bomber brings the trend to the slopes with perfection. Although this model is available in the standard black and navy, we favor the military green. It’s not your conventional technical ski jacket; but if you’re more of a chalet bunny, this bomber is exactly what you need. $800.

This Storm Chaser board delivers huge levels of float through big, fluffy powder thanks to design features learned from Jones’ partnering with Chris Christenson, the expert surfboard shaper. $599.

The new hotel lies within the historic, nine-story Latrobe Building, a former 1912 apartment building with an early Italian Renaissance design.
