Years ago, we traveled to places much colder than Ruidosso where we might go this year.
In the days before the internet, shops would sell the latest gear and if you knew what to buy, then looking for the latest thing really did make a difference. Today, I don't want to pay the kind of prices charged by resort areas but would like to know what the best gear is so that we can make a reasonable choices online.
We may not ski at all so we are looking for something that can get us prepared in case we ski but not be a waste of money if we don't.
Assistance in finding suitable gear at a reasonable price is greatly appreciated.
