Goodr Sports Sunglasses. These glasses are comfortable, durable, polarized and don't slip or fog up when you break a sweat. They come in all colors and even have themes like Wonder Woman, Batman, marathons, and the Rolling Stones. At $25, they are perfect for spring skiing along with running, biking, tennis and more.
Smith Pinpoint Active Sunglasses. For a lightweight, flexible, durable pair of shades, it's hard to beat Smith's Pinpoints. The Smith ChromaPop™ lenses provide amplified detail and color. These perform well for spring shredding, running and biking and they also look chill enough to wear all the time. The Megol nose pads provide a non-slip grip so glasses stay put and they are so comfortable, you may not realize you are wearing them.
Stay hydrated with a Hydro Flask. Keep your wake-up beverage of choice in a 20oz Hydro Flask. The TempShield® double-wall vacuum insulation will keep your beverage hot or cold for hours. It's lightweight and easy to cary by the handle. The wide mouth is much easier to clean. This is perfect companion for all activities, you will not want to leave home without it.
Staying Organized & Capturing Memories
Echo Show 15. Alexa can now keep the whole family organized with calendars, recipes, music and the news. One of our favorite features of the Echo Show is the photo display. Now we can relive our favorite ski memories all year long with rotating images. The Photo Frame feature enables you to easily display your albums from Amazon Photos or Facebook on your Echo Show 15.
If the Echo Show seems like more than Mom needs, we're also big fans of the wifi enabled, stand-alone digital frame.
Track Your Activities
Tracking Device. The Garmin Forerunner 645 can record all the details of your skiing based on movement and will automatically pause when you’re on a chairlift or take a break. This watch is an easy way to keep track of time on the mountain, distance traveled, maximum speed, average speed, and total vertical descent including a visual record in the form of a map of your day. This watch also tracks spring/summer activities including runs, hikes, outdoor bike rides, swimming and more.
Take Care of your Feet
CEP Compression Socks. Spring and summer adventures can involve long hours on your feet and a good pair of compression socks can be the perfect antidote. CEP's socks come in different lengths, but all of them improve blood circulation and are designed to prevent injury and speed recovery.
Decker's X-SCAPE Knit Lows. The latest innovation from Deckers Lab is a super comfortable, eco-conscious, lifestyle shoe. The upper is a single piece of Sorona® yarn fabric that is easy on the eyes and eliminates all pressure points to fit like a glove. The grippy sole is made from recycled rubber with an omni-directional tread. The Decker’s team made every effort to use recycled and next-generation materials to cut waste.
OOFOS Recovery Sandals. Let mom's feet breath and recover by wearing comfortable, supportive sandals. These are especially enjoyable after a long day on the trails. These sandals are designed with OOfoam technology that OOFOS says absorbs 37% more impact that traditional footwear. The luxe treatment sandal are hand-painted and come in a variety of spring colors and styles. We've even started wearing them around the house.
Braving the Elements
Helly Hansen Lumines Light Jacket. Specially tailored for urban commuters and bikers, the Lumines Light Jacket is also one of our favorites for spring skiing and other outdoor adventures. It's waterproof, breathable, insulated and warm with a high level of visibility elements thanks to its reflective stripes.
