So you're sick of paying for health care and looking to make some extra cash in beer league or NASTAR racing. We get it.
Or maybe you just want to leave your friends with dust in their mouths. We also get that. And while we at Powder7 predominantly chase powder rather than charge groomers, we can appreciate a good frontside ripper like anyone else. Because "slow" signs are meant to be sprayed, right?

You love him. He loves skiing.
Whether or not you also ski, finding a gear gift for him can quickly prove intimidating. There’s just so much stuff. He’s just so particular. Or maybe he just never coherently communicates what he needs or wants.
Whether he errs on the wild side or religiously sticks with that jacket you got him 20 years ago or blows you off to chase powder, we’ve got you covered.
And because you’re reading this gift guide, we know he loves you too.
For: The Trendsetter
He’s the personable one, the one cracking jokes and grabbing you a beer and laughing at himself. Those bright colors and that distinctive style mean you never lose him on the mountain. Get him a gift that keeps his party rolling.

Check out our preview of 2020 Kastle skis.
Highlights from the 2019 Kastle skis lineup:
Premium Brand, Premium Skis

Each model incorporates carbon with white copper wires into the classic elegant, sleek Limited topsheet look. At 93mm underfoot with wood and carbon in the core and early rise in the tips, the Supra profiles as the most all-mountain/off-piste-oriented ski in the line, and Kastle even bills it as a lightweight, worthy backcountry option.

2020 Kastle MX84 Description:
Kastle's prized MX84 returns, of course, for 2020 stronger than ever. Kastle keeps it rolling with the same construction from 2019.

The day Kastle stops making the MX84 will likely be the day the sun burns out...and speed-loving frontside rippers rejoice. A nice size run means that men, women, and the raddest youngsters all get to enjoy arguably the best frontside on-piste ski in skiing.
