I woke up Sunday morning to a deluge of Peepsnake orders-- ALL from Massachusetts. How thrilling to see so many new customers visiting with us from the press article in The Boston Globe Travel Section.
Much of this season’s snow sports gear pushes boundaries and sets new norms. You’ll find some of the lightest-ever skis, boots, and bindings, full snowboard setups for the youngest-ever riders, and standard winter accessories that offer surprising twists. Here are some of our favorite picks for the upcoming season.
Wear your phone on your winter outing
If you have ever fumbled with your cellphone while on a chairlift, left it behind at an après-ski bar, or tucked it into a pocket while skiing and missed an important call, then you will instantly recognize the benefit of this ingenious piece of winter gear. The Peepsnake Smartphone Scarf has a zippered pocket with a see-through window on one end of the scarf that fits your phone, even in its case, so you have easy access to it during your snowy adventures. Answer incoming calls, send a text, snap a photo, and navigate your phone’s touchscreen without taking the device out of its protective pocket. The scarf has another small pocket on the other end for holding your hotel key and some cash. The Premium scarf, made with thick Polartec Wind Pro fleece, has a pocket that fits smaller phones, while micro 250 fleece Plush scarf fits larger phones, such as the iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S5. $39.95-$49. 404-248-2991, www.peepsnake.com
