Skier's Christmas list 2012

Whether you are writing a list of presents to buy or writing your own Christmas list, we thought a little inspiration might help. We asked our Ski team what they were hoping to find in their oversized stockings on 25 December. This is what they said...

Portaski – a neat, lightweight & compact device allows skis to be effortlessly transported. Particularly good for transporting skis with children in tow. More >>

Columbia Electro Amp Glove – say goodbye to numb hands with these revolutionary heated gloves, which claim to be 20% warmer thanks to the thermal reflective lining. Charge up the battery pack and they get hotter still, pumping out heat for up to four hours. New for this year is the ‘drying’ setting which gently dries them whilst they charge overnight, making for toasty warm hands as soon as you put them on in the morning. More >>

The Go Go Bag from Merino Kids - a 100% natural sleep bag made from pure merino wool inside with the finest cotton outer. Great for travel to keep little ones snug during flights and transfers and then ideal for keeping them warm in the mountains. More >>

GoPro Hero3™ black edition - from the brand that brought us the 'World's Most Versatile Camera', the Hero3™ is smaller, lighter and more powerful than its predecessors; with built-in Wi-Fi making it more versatile than ever. More >>

Sorel Kids Super Trooper Boots – cozy toes are key for little ones when playing in the snow, as is good grip on slippery slopes. These toasty boots have a drawstring cord at the top to prevent snow falling in and are equally good stomping through mud at home. Available in blue, red and pink. More >> 

Rossignol Attraxion 1 Xelium Skis – designed specifically for women who are well beyond the nursery slopes, but have no desire to tackle powder-filled wildernesses. They are fast, stable, technically excellent and a great value ski for intermediates. More >> 

Bespoke Piste Markers – for something completely different, how about having your very own piste marker on display? These handmade piste markers can be for any resort and any run and come in two different sizes: 30 cm and the full size 46 cm. The signs are handmade and hand painted here in the UK and you can add whatever text you like, making it a great gift for the skier who has everything. More >>

Recon Mod Live - the ultimate gadget, worthy of James Bond status. If you want to know how fast you are going, the temperature and distance traveled you can view it all through a widescreen LCD display in your goggles. Comes with a bluetooth remote that looks sleek and is easy to use with your gloves on. It can link to your smartphone so you can read texts and access music. Requires compatible goggles. More >>

Manbi UFO slider - this lightweight UFO slider sledge is the modern version of the bin lid. The UFO slider can get up to amazing speeds, so luckily the sledge has side handles built in for safety, hold on tight! Rated in the top 5 sleds on Channel 5's The Gadget Show and fun for both big and little kids. More >>

Bjorn Borg Long Johns - gloves. Check. Socks. Check. Ski jacket. Check. Don’t forget the long johns! Available in suitably radical designs, these snug cotton long johns have more edge than a recently serviced snowboard. More >>

Beardski - we couldn't resist putting this one in! A crazy new ski mask that is practical and well-designed, but basically we love it because it looks like a big shaggy beard. It's fun and it keeps you warm. More >>

Happy Christmas!
