Yes, we know—many of you have already gotten in a few good snow days over winter break or when storms rolled in. But now is still a great time to upgrade some of your gear, if you busted it over Christmas or if you have plans for balmy spring skiing. It’s also prime time for end-of-season sales. We trekked up to the Cascade Range outside of Portland, Oregon, with a truck full of gear to test out some of the best and brightest (literally) of this year’s crop of jackets, bibs, helmets, gloves, boots, and bindings.
