Holiday Gift guide for Snow Fanatics

Winter has arrived and, as evidenced by the post-Thanksgiving Christmas lights strung up all over town, so has the holiday season. To help you spend less time shopping and more time shredding, we've compiled some of our favorite gift ideas for the skiers and snowboarders on your list. Whether you're shopping for your 7-year-old nephew (see K2's Grom Pack), your girlfriend (see Pistil's wrist warmers), or your best friend (see Quiksilver's mustache hat), we have you covered.

Sorel 1964 Premium ($100 - $130)

This is the first year Sorel's 1964 Premium Canvas boots have been available for women. They look like old-timey Sorels, but they're stacked with the latest features: seam-sealed, waterproof construction and a removable felt lining.

Boot dryers - Peet/DryGuy ($40)

Because the only thing worse than soggy boots is the smell of your stinky wet ones over by the heater apres-shred. The Peet dryer might not be fancy, but it does the trick -- for boots OR gloves. For portability grab a DryGuy Circulator HDT.

Petzl Pixa headlamp ($37-75)

New this year, the Pixa was originally designed for emergency workers and contractors, but it also makes a perfect tool for backcountry missions. The Pixa 3 features three lighting modes, is 100 percent waterproof and can be set up like a lantern.

Monarch 'One Planet' Pass ($439)

For $439, you get unlimited skiing at Colorado's Monarch Mountain as well as five resorts in Europe, three days at Revelstoke, two days at Telluride, one day at Silverton and half-price tickets at Taos and Alta.

K2 Grom Pack ($300-335)

Kids outgrow clothes faster than you can say sasquatch, so why not get them goods that grow when they do? The Grom Pack includes an easy on/off pint-sized snowboard and adjustable boots and bindings in boys' and girls' colorways. Cool mom not included.

Dakine Tuning Kits ($30-100)

Say you don't want to pay $30 for every edge-n-wax. Or say you enjoy taking care of your own equipment. You need a tuning kit, something basic like Dakine's Quick Tune package or, if you don't own an iron, splurge for the Super Tune. Wax included.

Pistil Jax Wristlet ($26)

For the women in your life who were born with cold hands, heat them up with Pistil Design's Jax Wristlet, an around-the-town wrist warmer that will keep her fingers free for texting.

Heat Bags, 10 pack - Poler ($20)

Yeah, you can put them in your gloves, but on those really frigid days, throw one of these in your jacket pocket with your cellphone. You'll be able to ride all day without your battery getting zorched by sub-zero temps. The best part? They're reusable.

Voile ski strap (from $3.50)

A perfect stocking stuffer for skiers, a Voile ski strap has countless uses: strapping your skis (obviously), clamping down unsticky skins, repairing broken gear or wrapping up your leftover burritos.

Airblaster Ninja Suit ($110)

One-piece, hooded long underwear that's styled like a tuxedo. Need we say more?

11"x14" Art of Flight photos ($60)

Say you'd like a photo of Scotty Lago, Travis Rice, John Jackson, Nico Mueller or a pretty AK mountainscape on your wall, but you can't afford any of the "Art of Flight" prints. Well now, just for the holidays, you can buy smaller-sized ones for cheap!

Laptop Skins - Asymbol ($3.0)

Mini computer-bling versions of some of the large-scale prints featured in Travis Rice's online gallery, Asymbol. Choose from Scott Lenhardt's Craig Kelly mural, Jamie Lynn and Mike Parillo art pieces, beautiful wave photography and more.

Ski USA playing cards ($8)

Perfect for stocking stuffers and hut trips, this deck of cards features 52 ski areas around the U.S. Challenge your friends to see who's ridden at the most resorts.

Eric Pollard print ($40)

This 11-x-17-inch print was designed by pro skier Eric Pollard. A limited number of signed prints are available on now...

Quiksilver Stavi Hat ($20)

This foam front trucker hat from Quiksilver comes with a removable/wearable mustache on it. What skier or snowboarder doesn't want that? Napsack - Poler ($130)

It's a sleeping bag with arm holes and a cinch at the bottom so you can walk around in it. Wear it inside when you're freezing because your cheap roommates won't turn up the heat, or use it to warm up after a super cold session. It's the best thing ever.

Skullcandy iPhone case ($25)

The perfect gift for your friend who can't hit the park without his or her iPhone: a protective hard-shell case for an iPhone 4 or 4S from your favorite headphone maker, Skullcandy.

BCA Snow Study Kit ($85)

Your friends who backcountry ski already have a beacon, shovel and probe. But do they have a snow study kit, complete with a slope meter, thermometer, crystal card and more? Yeah, we didn't think so. Weight: 11 ounces.

Stoic Merino Bliss 150 ($55)

The Merino Bliss 150 from Stoic, the in-house brand of gear retailer, costs less than many of its big-name competitors, and it keeps you from smelling like a dead cat after a few days away from a washing machine.
