The Ultimate Ski Setup: $2,045

Dream Ski Gear

Nothing makes a powder hound happy like a slick set of skis, boots, and bindings. With a twin rocker and hook-free taper, the Salomon QST 106 Ski ($700) is one of the best all-around big mountain skis out there. The Scarpa Maestrale RS Alpine Touring Ski Boots ($795) have a responsive flex for backcountry fun, and the carbon-infused Grilamid web-frame shells provide plenty of support during adventurous alpine tours.

And to round it out, we have the Salomon S/Lab Shift MNC Bindings ($550). As our editor noted during testing, “It gives skiers the benefit of downhill bindings (safety, convenience, and performance) and pin-tech bindings (smooth pivot, light on feet) for uphill touring.”

REI Everest Base Camp Trek: $4,299

REI Everest Basecamp Trip

Anyone who’s ever dreamed of visiting Mount Everest but doesn’t want to risk life and limb getting to the top will love this travel adventure. Spend several days hiking to surrounding villages and see the fabled Khumbu Ice Fall and its towering seracs from a distance. Then hike to the summit of Kala Patar for an unobstructed view of Everest’s windblown summit. It’s truly a bucket-list experience.

Alpackalypse Packraft

Packable, portable, and outrageously fun, the Alpackalypse pairs the maneuverability of a hard kayak with the portable fold-down package of a packraft. The 400-denier Vectran is built to stand up to the gnarliest whitewater, and the rockered hull design makes for a playful ride. And if you think packrafts are just for floating down calm water, check out the video below. It will have you dreaming of charging holes and surfing waves.
