DPS Phantom 2.0 Permanent Waxless Glide
Ever imagined waxing your skis just once and never having to do it again? That’s what this stuff does for you (and whoever you are buying it for). The polymer technology—which has nothing to do with wax—sinks into your ski base. Even if you do a stone grind tune-up, your skis come out ready to slide. I “Phantomed” a pair of my skis at the beginning of last season and they felt fresh-waxed every day, in all conditions. Enviro-friendly, permanent and high-performance, Phantom is a cool concept from a great little SLC-based ski company.

Who wouldn’t like a spanky new set of poles this holiday season? I know I would. The Cascade 2-part pole from Scott would complement any quiver.
