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.
