2016 Gift Guides for Those that Love to Play in the SnowDec 14th, 2016
With the holidays quickly approaching, you may be feeling like you’re running out of time to get all of your errands and shopping done! Don’t worry — FFUN is here to help! If you have someone on your list that loves to play in the snow on big sleds and snowmobiles, here’s a handy gift guide to take the guesswork out of your shopping chores.
It may seem boring, but a good quality helmet is worth its weight in gold. Not only will a helmet that has been approved by a standards organization help keep someone safe, but it will also help keep your noggin warm. Make sure to get one that has a good anti-fogging visor so visibility isn’t compromised.
A well-insulated and protective suit can be a real lifesaver while out riding. It will help keep you toasty warm, and keep the wind and moisture at bay while you’re ripping through the trees.
Moisture Wicking Base Layers
Smartwool or a similar fabric is great for base layers because it will help remove excess sweat and moisture. This means that the base layer not only helps to keep the rider extra warm but it will also help avoid any uncomfortable chafing.
This little contraption is the rider’s best friend when stuck in the snow. The Snowbunje is available in two forms: The Rattler, which is designed with a hook, and the Cobra, which is designed with a handle. Both are designed to ensure that getting unstuck is as easy as can be so the rider can get back to having a blast.
Proper Gloves for Snowmobiling
If the snowmobiler in your life is using the same gloves they use for skiing, they need a new pair. The key is to have a pair of gloves that will keep your hands warm but are supple enough to allow the rider to feel sled feedback and respond appropriately.
