THE ULTIMATE ALL TERRAIN PREDATOR
The Lib Tech Orca - send it on a hardpack rail or float pillows like a dream all season long.
"It's probably one of the most recognizable boards out there, but it's not all hype - the Orca just feels great to ride, especially in Tahoe where it can get pretty icy. Plus, all the LibTech boards are made up in Seattle, so they're about as local as it gets for snowboards."

THE BEST SELLING WOMEN'S SKI, REINVENTED
The Blizzard Black Pearl 88 - designed not just for the best days on the mountain, but for every day.
"The Black Pearl has been a top selling women's ski for years, but that's kinda common knowledge. So why are we still going on about it? It was redesigned in partnership with Blizzard's Women to Women panel and has their new W.S.D. (Women Specific Design) tech. This isn't a slightly smaller men's ski, it's really, truly made for women, by women, and it feels like it when you actually ride it."

GET DOWN WITH COTOPAXI
The Cotopaxi Fuego Down Jacket - lightweight & water-resistant down gives you fall through spring versatility.
"I don't know of a single Sports Basement staffer who's not stoked on these jackets. We all love Cotopaxi bags, I mean what's not to love, and the jackets are all that and more - all that color and brightness, plus they actually fit incredibly well, they're water resistant, and they're made with responsibly-sourced down. Basically perfect."

YOU ONLY GET ONE BRAIN
The Anon Merak WaveCel features the newest safety technology out there - even more futuristic than MIPS!
"This is crazy awesome tech - I'm honestly more excited about this helmet than I am about any skis or boards. WaveCel is a material that replaces the polystyrene in most helmets, so instead of shattering on impact it shifts and deflects momentum away from your skull. It's also waaay more sustainable than polystyrene. Safer for your face, safer for the Earth."
- Philip H., Director of Buying
GET A LITTLE TIPSY
Tipsy Elves is a new brand for Sports Basement, but if you've ever seen someone on the slopes and thought "What are they wearing?! That is the wildest snowsuit ever and I NEED it!" then you're probably familiar with them already.
"Why do I even need to write anything? This is the coolest thing Sports Basement has ever sold. Aaand it's technically pretty legitimate, too. The biggest issue is I have no idea which one to buy."
- Anne M., Softgoods Manager
