Santa’s Helper

The Season of Giving is here. Thanksgiving leftovers stuff the refrigerator and the newspaper is thick with flyers and ads. If you have skiers or riders on your gift list—and that list should most definitely include YOU—then check out Avie’s Ski / Sport for some ideas.

Sure, check out the vast display of skis, boots, boards, and bindings. If you really want to Wow! someone, a new set of skis, boots, or a snowboard would be welcome by even someone as crotchety as Ebenezer Scrooge. But there all sorts of gift possibilities  to fit anyone who likes to play in the snow. Hmmm, where to start?

SmartWool is always a good place to begin. Avie’s has a whole wall draped with SmartWool socks. Thick, light, ultra-light. Plaid, solid, patterned. Snowboard/Slopestyle and Skier. Even Everyday. SmartWool socks are the socks skiers and riders want because they are WARM!! And comfortable. SmartWool socks make a great gift or stocking stuffer.

Gloves—Kombi, SmartWool, The North Face, Level, and SWIX. Ladies, men, kids. Everyone’s hands will find warmth and style in Avie’s great selection of gloves whether the need is for driving gloves or sub-zero ski and ride gloves. Oh yeah, there are mittens too. And don’t forget a couple of hand-warmer heat packets for those days on the slopes when it’s just so good there is no way you can stomach stopping because of cold hands.

Scarves and hats. Tons of colors and styles. If you can’t find something to keep your, or that special someones head warm in a stylish way at Avie’s, then you need to move to somewhere that warm hats are never needed. Seriously. The selection is that big.

Face masks, balaclavas, and neck gaiters round out the necessities for having fun on the slopes regardless the weather conditions. These little things that often get forgotten, but make such a huge impact on cold weather comfort, make great gifts sure to be remembered.

Ski and ride pants, and ski and ride parkas, by The North Face. As well as accessory items like vests and sweaters. And not to forget that most important of all layers—SmartWool again saves the day—lightweight and warm base layers. Great stocking stuffers that are sure to be appreciated.

Kamik footwear to get you to the ski lodge and back again. The list goes on.

How about something really, really special? Something that, hands down, will bring a smile to the face of whoever gets this gift? Something they will look forward to with great excitement and much anticipation? That something would be a seat on one of Avie’s bus trips north to a ski resort in Vermont or New Hampshire. The Ski & Ride Trips are likely the biggest value at Avie’s. For under $100 you get to give someone the gift of a lift ticket AND a ride to-and-from the ski mountain. It doesn’t get much better than that. If you really want to impress, get a pair of trip tickets so a friend can come along. And would it really be so bad if perhaps you were that friend?

The holiday shopping season has officially begun. If you have skiers or riders on your gifting list, then Avie’s Ski / Sport needs to be your destination. Stop by and let us help you put a giant smile on faces this holiday season.
