Holiday Gifts to Give to Skiers and Snowboarders

Buying holiday gifts for skiers can be hard. Here at White Cloud Concierge we can recommend a few holiday gifts to give to skiers and snowboarders in your life that are sure to be great successes. Buying individual pieces of gear can be hard because there are so many options, but we’ve compiled a list of great holiday gifts that all skiers can appreciate. Some are big, some are small, but all will be well received!

The Man Behind The Maps

James Niehues is the man behind the signature look of ski maps. If you’ve looked at a ski map and it doesn’t feel like the rest, then James didn’t paint it. He has painted every single tree by hand over his career and put over 200 maps together in this book. It is a beautiful hardcover coffee table book and any enthusiast of skiing or snowboarding will appreciate flipping through its pages and recalling fond memories of sliding on snow down their favorite trails at their favorite mountains, or planning their next trip!


Ski tuning

Give them a gift they can actually experience and pay for them to get a ski tune with no hassle! If they are within our service area, we will pick up their skis, make them look like new with sharp edges and fast wax, and drop them back off. No loading skis into the car, no time wasted driving back and forth, and no more dull edges or having to push on the flats.

A box of snacks to keep in the car for after skiing

Nothing is better after a long day of skiing or snowboarding than a good snack. Figuring out a good combination of apres-ski snacks to put together would make any skier or snowboarder smile. Cheese, crackers, and meats are a classic combo, but sometimes chips and guacamole, or potato chips, or donuts hit the spot just right. A great snack is a great option for holiday gifts to give to skiers and snowboarders.

The time to ski together

Taking a day to dedicate to your special someone is probably the best gift you can possibly give. Make the day about them and just plain enjoy the fact that going skiing with a good friend is a gift to both of you. It’s less about the weather or the snow and more about laughing about how much darn fun it is to slide on snow and even more fun to do it with them. To make the day about them, plan to pick them up from their house and buy them lunch too.
