One thing that will probably have changed since you last skied is the number of people who wear helmets now. From my small racing background, I developed a love of helmets in highschool, but back then (mid to late 90s) would never wear one when not racing. Now it seems like everyone is wearing one, myself included. Warmer than a hat and keeps you from being Bono'd.

I'm in Toronto as well, and higly recommend Skis and Bikes in Missisagua (Dundas St, iirc). They have a fairly good selection of stuff, generally better prices than Sporting LIfe and their bootfitters are fantastic.


Thanks for the tips - I already have a helmet from a few seasons ago, also picked up the habit from racing. Skis and Bikes is great - their Collingwood shop too iirc.

I'm a CSIA level 2 instructor and level 1 coach, I'm not too worried about looking like a noob. I only asked for some opinions to see if things have evolved in the past 5-10 years.

Just buy Norrona or Arcteryx and you'll be good for function and fashion.

If you want to be cool, go with something like Armada.

www.backcountry.com has pretty much everything you could want to browse through.

I was a big fan of Bogner for years but last season I bought Kjus pants and jacket and have been extremely pleased. Not only is the technical design excellent, but they are slim fit and are by far the most flattering gear I've worn (or seen).

I've heard neon is making a comeback:



+1 to the Backcountry.com suggestion, unless Bogner is your speed.
