Thursday, February 8, 2018 1:04:28 PM America/Denver

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and ski season is in full swing. While you can’t give the gift of snow, you can still share the joy of skiing or snowboarding — you’re just going to have to get a little creative. Depending on what kind of relationship you’re in, you may want to start small, or perhaps it’s time to really kick things up a notch. Feeling stumped? Use this guide as a helpful starting point. Share the joy of shredding the slopes and pick out the appropriate Valentine’s Day gift for your relationship.

First Date

Sure, you don’t know him or her well (if at all) but you also never know where things could lead, so now’s the time to put your best foot forward. You don’t have to go crazy and spend a ton of money, but don’t be rude, either. Choosing Valentine’s Day for your first date requires a little romance. How about a nice pair of gloves? This is a useful winter season gift that shows you put some thought into things. It might also be a nudge towards a second date on the slopes — if things go well. If not, you’re not out too much money.

 

For Him: Swany Blackhawk Men’s Glove

These gloves are new to the line this year, serving as the perfect way to start off a possible relationship and a sure way to melt his heart. The Blackhawk features Aerodyne Palm Construction for a better grip and PrimaLoft insulation. He’ll be itching to try these out on a test run and might even invite you to join him.

 

For Her: Hestra Heli Women’s Glove

These stylish gloves are sure to win her affection. They’re made from soft leather and offer a tapered profile ideal for a women’s hands. On or off the slopes, these are likely to turn heads. Bonus? She’ll definitely think you have good taste.

 

New Couple

Things are hot and heavy early on — the perfect time to pull off your cheesiest moves. Struggling with deciding on a gift that's snow-related and yet romantic as well? Go for some matching him-and-her jackets. This sweet gesture shows you’re absolutely enamored and at the same time expresses your need to get on the powder. In addition, February is “Markdown Month” at UtahSkis — which means tons of brands start marking down their 2017-18 gear and you can get some Mammut, Sunice, and Descente apparel for 20% off. Don’t fret — just because you got 20% off doesn't mean you love her 20% less.

 

For Him: Mammut Trovat

For Her: Mammut Kira

 

These insulated jackets are ideal for strolling around town or wearing under your shell on those cold days on the mountain. They’re made from premium goose down and include a two-way zip system, side pockets, and chin protectors.

 

Engaged

You’ve reached a major milestone. Now is the time to go big or go home. Forget about an engagement ring — how about a pair of skis? There’s no better way to express your undying love than a gift that will last your lifetimes together — not to mention save thousands in gear rental costs.

 

For Him: Nordica Enforcer 110

Talk about a head turner. Whether your man is into backcountry powder, steep chutes, or terrain park tricks, these skis can do it all. The Enforcers are designed burly to handle the burliest conditions. Two Titanal layers, two carbon layers and an ultralight hybrid balsa core ensure they will get the job done right — every time.

 

For Her: Rossignol Temptation 84

The ultimate combination of power and finesse, she won't be able to resist grinning from ear to ear on her first run down the mountain on these. The Carbon Alloy Matrix provides for tons of lightweight benefits and allows you to float effortlessly on top of powder.

 

Married with Kids

Just because you're married doesn’t mean you shouldn’t spice things up for your loved one on Valentine’s Day. But college isn’t cheap, and it’s just around the corner. Worried about finances but still want to get something special for your spouse? Shop the UtahSkis outlet, where you can find a ton of products at unbeatable prices. Browse winter clearance products and ski and snowboard gear for both him and her.

 

For Him: Salomon Quest Access 70 Ski Boots

Get your husband a new pair of ski boots and plan a family ski trip. You’re not getting any younger and he’ll love this extra comfortable ski boot.

 

For Her: Atomic Hawx Prime Ski Boots

Encourage her to get back into her skiing groove with a pair of these. They’re the ideal all-mountain boot with just the right amount of flex.
