Salomon Sick Stick

Zinger 4 of 15

The Sick Stick is a hot item around the TransWorld office. We have one board and four editors trying to call dibs on it. That kind of tells you something. It's a classic tapered shape for pow flotation.

Gnu Park Pickle!

Zinger 5 of 15

The mouthwatering new Park Pickle is a true-twin shaped board with a centered stance and Banana Technology. Based on the idea that heelside turns require more leverage than toeside turns, the Park Pickle has deeper sidecut on the heelside. This limited early release is only available in a 156 lenth—the entire size range will be available next winter (hopefully with a couple alternate graphic options).
$489

$239

Burton AK 2L Jussi Anorak Jacket

Zinger 11 of 15

Hell yes! Bring back the classic half-zip jacket. This jacket pops! And it's part of the Burton Gore-Tex AK line, so it's actually super functional, too. There's something to be said for being visible on the slopes—the Europeans had that figured out years ago.

Ortovox S1 Avalanche Transceiver

Zinger 12 of 15

Therm-ic Footwarmer Supermax+

Zinger 13 of 15

Kind of pricey yes, but so are lift tickets. If you're one of those guys or gals who's got icecubes for toes, then it's worth the one-time investment to keep you out on the slopes … and trying to get your 80-dollars worth of riding in for the day.
$250
