We love skis and snowboards. Really love them.

It can be tough to pick favorites, but these are the ones we love this season. Skis and boards for every shredder in the family, from every category. OGE Ski
Department Head Dan and Snowboard Department Head Hayes tell it like it is.

All-Mountain Boards:

Yes Basic Women’s Board

A mid-flex all-mountain board, the Yes Basic is the best bang-for-your-buck of any board, for everyone from first-day riders to experts.

This little piggy went to the mountain and tore it all up! The swallow tail allows this board to carve like a machine.

Good for charging, slashing, popping, floating and having a good time.
