Many resorts opened over the weekend marking the official start of snowsports season. There is so much great new gear this holiday for the skier or snowboarder on your list that it was hard to narrow it down. Similar to our climbing gift guide, we have thrown up some of our favorite gift ideas over on our #snowgifts Pinterest board.
Instead of squirreling away your bike, skis, boards, and other gear in the garage or basement, Grassracks offers you a unique way to not only store, but display your gear when not in use.
