2022 Editors’ Choice Awards: Snowboards, Boots & Bindings

Used to be that you strapped a plate on your resort bindings and used your resort boots for backcountry snowboarding, but now we have lightweight touring-specific gear that performs well on the up and the down. Our splitboard testers celebrated that fact by highlighting their favorite boards, boots and bindings.

2022 Editors’ Choice: Apparel

Our testers have always pushed apparel in harsh conditions, and last season was no exception. After all, the folks who make the cut as BCM testers aren’t scared of skinning in sleet, heavy snow and blistering sun—sometimes all on the same day. Here, you’ll find the cream of the crop of jackets, pants, puffies and midlayers.

2022 Editors’ Choice: Ski Bindings & Accessories

Our testers were choosier when it came to bindings, skis and poles than when it came to skis, but if you’re following their advice, that might make your life easier.

2022 Editors’ Choice: Freeride Skis

There’s a time and place for skimo gear, and there’s a time and place for fat, freeride skis that handle drops, steeps and deeps like a champ. Our testers found several pairs they liked in the latter category.

2022 Editors’ Choice: AT boots

Boots can be the difference between a great day in the mountains and a miserable one. Our testers narrowed down the ever-expanding world of AT boots to just six pairs to help you decide.

2022 Editors’ Choice: All-Mountain Skis

One ski to rule them all. These Editors’ Choice picks might not quite fit the bill of being the One Ski, but our testers said they’re solid for those looking for skis that do a bit of everything.

2022 Editors’ Choice: Lightweight Skis

From the 2022 Editors’ Choice picks, a few lighter options skis rose to the top. These are the kind of skis you can bang out laps on the skintrack and have fun on the descent, provided it’s not too deep.
