15 Dad Gifts for Skiers and Snowboarders He’ll Want To Hit The Slopes With

If your old man is anything like me, he loves to ski. I learned how to ski in Colorado when I was 8-years-old over a three day weekend. I took lessons the first day and a half, and by the time it was time to drive back to Kansas I was Skiing blues with my dad.

It might be tough to think of the ideal present for your dad who is always wanting to go skiing with you and your family. Especially since skiing gear is expensive, size-dependent, and for people who don’t ski it’s difficult to understand what makes a great skiing gift for dad. Don’t worry, we’ve got your back – this comprehensive guide has outstanding presents for your ski bum dad that they’ll use on the slopes for years.

1) Turbine Planet Jacket

Sometimes it’s nice to upgrade something dad already has. For your skiing dad, a new jacket for the slopes just might be your answer. A warm, waterproof jacket will keep dad comfortable all day long while he’s ripping it — or cruising down the greens.

2) Burton Gore-Tex Gloves

If you’ve never gone skiing, insulated gloves are a skier’s best friend. Chilly chairlift rides up to the top and whipping winds and he’s skiing down are more enjoyable with a new pair of ski gloves. These Gore-Tex gloves from Burton have a removeable liner that works on touchscreens, so dad can text you on the lift without freezing his hands.
