Dec 07, 2012

It's the coldest year ever and the mountains are full of snow! Are you ready to schwoop on down with your skis or snowboard? What?! You're still shopping for one and you don't know which to get... you're in luck because Kidzworld has the inside edge for you. Here is the best snowboarding and skiing gear of the 2012-13 snow season!

The Burton Nug - Top Snowboard for Guys

Burton is the best snowboarding company... EVAAAR!!! They are constantly coming out with smaller, lighter, high performance snowboards that have all the PROs drooling for the latest model. "The Nug" is this year's gem. It features:

  • V-Rocker reverse camber
  • Jumper Cable suspension
  • Frostbite edges
  • Core: Super Fly® with Dualzone® EGD
  • MSRP:  $399.95

“I charged, straight-lined it, and tried to go super-fast. I hit some jumps and boxes and it was super-fun everywhere. I rode a 138, but it didn’t feel any shorter than a 150. It was better than any other reverse-camber board I tried; really fun and really poppy."

K2 Eco Pop - Top Snowboard for Gals

The whole idea of the Eco Popis to reduce weight and material so while it makes snowboarding easier, it's also better for Mother Nature. Well, it might not save the environment just because they shaved off some fibreglass, it still looks pretty and the girly PROs are backing up the Eco Pop as the top performing board of the year. It features:

  • Reverse camber
  • Shock absorbing synthetic polymer
  • Rhythm WH4 Core
  • MSRP:  $499.95

Bonafide's Blizzard

The Blizzard is for an aggressive skiier that attacks the mountain with speed. It's a wood-core, sandwich-constructed, hard-charging, rip-roaring stallion of an all-mountain ski. The 98 mm waist gives you ample girth to plow through crud. The bamboo and titanium guts combine for a ride so stable and smooth that one tester said they’d “go a million MPH,” if you could. Drop in a little tip and tail rocker for added fun and you’ve got yourself a heck of a do-it-all ski. 

Nordica's Belle to Belle

Part of an all-new women’s lineup from Nordica is the Belle to Belle, an ambitious, turny and fun ski for the frontside. The Belle to Belle is at home slicing up groomers or thrashing through the crud. The early rise gives the ski a playful feel and easier turn initiation for those less-than-perfect days. The directional nature of the ski, combined with traditional camber through two-thirds of the length, gives the ski stability at high speed.
