Snow Advice isn’t necessarily a team of writers who give you advice about literal snow. We’re huge snowboarding and skiing gear junkies who also know how to write relatively well (we think, at least)– hence our website dedicated to reviewing, comparing and contrasting the best snow gear for the money. We do so by typically writing reviews on individual gear (usually the new and popular items out there) as well as shopping guides that compare and contrast the highly reviewed models to give you some light on which is best for you.
We want to give you the best snow gear reviews
Although to each their own, we can’t count how many times we’ve tried looking for some simple reviews or roundups on the best snow gear to help us shop for the next season. Most of the websites there are just okay. That’s what inspired us to really step it up and actually help others as opposed to simple “this one might be good” philosophies — hence the advice part of our name!
Whether it’s the best snow helmets, snowboards, skis, bindings, boots, gloves, goggles and more — our goal is to ultimately provide our readers (and ourselves!) the picks for the absolute best snow gear arsenal on the mountain.
What is the best snow gear and equipment for me?
Unfortunately, it depends. On quite a few factors, to be honest. For our shopping guides for example, we’ll give you our #1 pick of course; however, it wouldn’t be fair to us to assume this fit the needs of every snowboarder or skier that comes across our website (and hopefully returns!). That’s why we like to carefully create a bullet point list for each best of guide we provide to our readers to help you figure it out on your own. Your budget? It may depend on the person, let alone the type of gear. Your intended use? Who knows. Extra features? Again, it depends!
We know a few shredders who’d prefer to drop all their cash on a high-end pair of goggles while sticking with a budget-friendly pair of gloves to merely keep their hands warm. Others may feel the exact opposite — they want some expensive gloves to feel comfortable while they rip it up and leave the goggles to merely block some wind from their eyes.
Which snow and ski gear will you be focusing on?
Below is a list of our goals of ultimately providing help with each and every year. Since this particular gear category has new relesases every single season, we want to help you keep up with what’s hot. Let’s see what we’ve been able to find as important for snowboarders and skiers:
Not only do we want to approach our reviews and guides based on type of snow gear, but also find the best equipment for those in different populations, ages, gender and levels. These include:
How does snow advice live on?
We monetize our website in a few different ways. In order to have the time (at least some) to write our reviews and guides on snow gear, we have to make a few bucks to cover the costs of maintaining the website (and other bills, of course). For one, we use banner advertising (in non-intrusive spots, hopefully you’ll agree) to place some relevant ads you may be interested in. Each click gives us a few cents (or more, depending on what ad and by whom).
We also participate in a few different affiliate marketing programs to give us a few % of the sales we refer. If you’d like to support us, feel free to click the links we provide if you find a particular piece of gear suitable for your needs (which we hopefully we helped with!).
Any questions or comments?
What’s a website that reaches a large audience that doesn’t listen to their readers? We’re all ears, even if it’s some criticism. Your questions, comments, and feedback help us get better what we do, which ultimately helps other readers in the future, too. Feel free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any thoughts, questions or feelings.
You can also ask us for advice if you haven’t been able to find a guide that fits your particular needs or if you’re having trouble decide within a few of our picks. We promise to try our best to respond to everybody!
