Oh hey, win­ter. Thanks for show­ing up. Bet­ter late than nev­er though! Get geared up for all this wel­come spring snow with today’s fea­tured events:

Spy­der: If apa­thy and a pro­cliv­i­ty for the low-pres­sure mun­dane are poi­sons that lead to a seden­tary life, Spy­der is the anti­dote. The com­pa­ny designs tech­ni­cal appar­el for skiers who are uncom­pro­mis­ing in their ded­i­ca­tion to the sport and unabashed in the mantra: Risk. Speed. Per­form. Win. Today, we’re pleased to be offer­ing Men’s and Women’s Spy­der tech­ni­cal appar­el. Don’t miss out! Hes­i­ta­tion would be tox­ic on this one.

Sur­face Skis: Right now, on the moun­tains and in their lab in the heart of Utah ski coun­try, Sur­face Skis founder Mike Schnei­der and his crew are hard at work design­ing and test­ing prod­ucts that will con­tin­ue to push the bound­aries of ski­ing. Sur­face Skis pro­duces sharp-look­ing all-moun­tain per­for­mance twins fit for any ter­rain, from park to back­coun­try. What are you wait­ing for? Win­ter just got here. Free up your next moun­tain mis­sion with a pair of Sur­face Skis. Why not take the whole fam­i­ly? We’ve got Men’s, Women’s and Youth mod­els on sale today at The Clymb.

CELTEK: Pack it, roll it, and then pock­et it for the lift, because that’s where it’ll be the best. About halfway up, take that suck­er out. Palm­ing it in your glove feels good, doesn’t it? Savor the feel­ing of mis­chie­vous antic­i­pa­tion. Now throw that snow­ball as hard as you can at your begin­ner-lev­el friend, who is pulling him­self off the ground just below the lift. Stay warm while mak­ing turns or moun­tain may­hem with artis­ti­cal­ly designed CELTEK per­for­mance snow­board­ing gloves, mit­tens, bean­ies, and face­masks, on sale now. 

Did you know? Spy­der once almost got KA-POW’d by Spi­der Man. In an arti­cle cel­e­brat­ing Aus­tralian ski­er and Spy­der ath­lete Steven Lee’s 1985 Alpine World Cup win, Sports Illus­trat­ed referred to the ath­lete as “Spi­der Man.” It’s a dream for a brand to be fea­tured in such a high-pro­file mag­a­zine but for Spy­der, the hon­or soon turned into a night­mare. Mar­vel Comics sent the com­pa­ny a legal warn­ing of trade­mark infringe­ment. Before Mar­vel final­ly dropped action, Spy­der founder David Jacobs believed his busi­ness, still rel­a­tive­ly young, was doomed. Like a real Peter Park­er, Lee went on to briefly take a new iden­ti­ty, work­ing with Jack­ie Chan as a lead stunt ski­er and snow­mo­bil­er in the 1996 film, First Strike.

I spent about five min­utes debat­ing the title to this post. The Uni­ver­si­ty of Oxford Writ­ing and Style Guide recent­ly decid­ed that writ­ers should drop the Oxford Com­ma. So, accord­ing to them, the title should read, “Cushe, Coal and Nomis.” Although, using it resolves ambi­gu­i­ty so that you know Coal and Nomis aren’t togeth­er. How­ev­er, with the com­ma, today’s event sounds like a law firm.

Yes, these are the things that keep me up at night.

Well, let’s get today’s events start­ed, shall we?

Cushe (pro­nounced Cushy) designs footwear that’s unique and chal­lenges the bound­aries of footwear design. In their case, love is in the details — the lit­tle things you can and can’t see that make their prod­uct that extra bit unique and spe­cial. And speak­ing of spe­cial, our mem­bers can shop Cushe footwear for men and women, start­ing today, at up to 55% off. Check out the Cushe event here.

Coal designs head­wear that are more than acces­sories because they under­stand that your style is a part of you, your per­son­al­i­ty — and why not have head­wear that is as unique as we are from one anoth­er? Shop an array of Coal’s bean­ies and fedo­ras at up to 60% off now. And if you’re so inclined, share pho­tos of your pur­chase on our Face­book page. Per­son­al­ly, I think every­one looks great in a fedora.

Nomis offers high qual­i­ty appar­el that looks as good as it fits. No, seri­ous­ly, their designs are awe­some. Check out our Nomis event with out­er­wear, appar­el, acces­sories and swimwear at up to 55% off here.

Make sure you check us out on Face­book (espe­cial­ly lat­er today when we’ll have a cool con­test announce­ment) or Twit­ter. We’re always around, wait­ing to answer your ques­tions or hand out invi­ta­tions to join.

Today, it’s all about the acces­sories. Acces­sories that per­form and pro­tect under pres­sure, and man­age to help you look good in the process.

For the musi­cal­ly-inspired indi­vid­ual, we have a selec­tion of Vestal hats, belts and watch­es at up to 60% off. For over ten years, Vestal has allowed the indi­vid­ual on the move to express their unique style. You can shop our Vestal event here.

From moun­tain bik­ing to the ski slopes, Zeal Optics gog­gles and sun­glass­es have become syn­ony­mous with ver­sa­tile per­for­mance. Mem­bers can shop their polar­ized lens­es in a vari­ety of styles at up to 50% off in our exclu­sive event.

Stop by Face­book or Twit­ter if you need an invite, and I’ll extend one. While you’re on our Face­book page, check out our pho­to con­test where you can win a $50 gift cer­tifi­cate to The Clymb. And thanks to every­one that sup­port­ed our MiiR event last week, donat­ing $2 to One Day’s Wages for every bot­tle sold.
