Our gear guides continue with Tahoe Mountain Sports owners Dave and Pam, who’ve shared what’s on their wish lists. Peek back at Kevin’s wish list for more holiday gear gift ideas, and look for more favorites from TMS’s core staff and contributors in the coming weeks.
On Dave’s Wish List:
This is the just the coolest bottle ever; it’s that simple. It insulates, comes with 3 different caps depending on what you are drinking with it and a beer can will fit inside for easy traveling. $159.95
It’s not cool and it’s not exciting, but it is a pair of socks under $20. I always need new socks, especially ski socks. These are the thinnest, most comfortable ski socks going and everybody should have at least 1 pair of socks in their stocking….. and I’m even Jewish! $14.95
I’m always on the hunt for the best lightweight glove that I can backcountry ski in, skate in and wear around for driving or shoveling as need be and these gloves fit the bill. Hestra is a new brand for us at TMS and I picked these out for the store because I like them so much. So simple, affordable, Hestra comfort and durability round out my reasons for wanting this glove this holiday season. $49.95
On Pam’s Wish List…
So soft and fuzzy plus it’s lightweight, compressible and warm. I think I could live in this. It looks great on and I like the magenta color. $179
I really want an outfit for the holidays like the Isis Fundamental Cowl Neck ($68.95) and Isis Strike a Cord Skirt ($68.95). This outfit is the perfect mountain lifestyle dress outfit that can be dressed up or down, looks great and is comfortable. It will look great with my Smartwool tights and Keen Bern Baby Bern Boots.
I’m a 6-year Tahoe resident. Yep, I live the life, with a lake view from my desk, lunch breaks on the beach with my dog, and morning powder runs when the snow’s good. I ski, snowboard, skate ski, and cross-country ski in winter, and hike, mountain bike, backpack, and lay around on Tahoe’s beaches in summer.
