Holiday Gifts for Ski Racers

So you want to get your favorite ski racer something they’ll actually use for Christmas this year? Read on for our holiday gift guide, curated by ski racers for ski racers. 

training shorts for ski racers

Training Shorts

Training shorts are incredibly helpful for keeping a ski racer warm, leg muscles functioning well, and keeping an expensive ski racing suit in good condition. Arctica 2.0 Training Shorts offer everything you know and love about our famous ski racing pants, from long-lasting DURA10 fabric to HEAT40 synthetic insulation. The Arctica A Team Black Kat Training Short is engineered for performance. FLEXSHELL fabric is waterproof, windproof, and breathable while providing exceptional stretch for maximum mobility and a universal great fit. The Octigrid micro fleece lining keeps them warm when they need it, and pulls excess heat away on those nice spring and summer ski days.


side zip ski pants can go anywhere

Unique Side-Zip Ski Pants

Everyone needs side-zip ski pants (read why here). Pick the perfect pair of ski pants for your favorite ski racer and their personality. Our ski pants come standard with side zips, so a ski racer can easily take them on and off. With 14 different colors to choose from, everyone can stand out and express their personality on the ski hill. Arctica side zip pants are reinforced specifically for ski racers. A DURA10 nylon shell is durable for long-term wear and resilient in harsh conditions. A fleece-lined adjustable waistband ensures your ski racer can find their perfect fit. In addition to full side zips, articulated knees and Cordura scuff guards make these the perfect pants for the ski racer or any skier in your life. 



training jacket for skiers

Training Jacket

Gift your ski racer a layer they can train in, use as an insulation layer, or wear out to school and events. The Arctica A Team Black Kat training jacket is insulating with an Octigrid micro-fleece lining while being flexible and lightweight. Arctica’s exclusive FLEXSHELL fabric is waterproof, windproof, breathable, and stretchy. It’s the perfect piece to allow full training mobility while keeping your skier warm. Plus, the brushed matte finish is svelte — it can be worn anywhere, in or out of a ski town. 



Arctica Long Down Coat

Long Down Jacket

Every ski racer knows — skiing comes with plenty of cold mornings and days that don’t break 15 Fahrenheit. A long down jacket is like wearing a sleeping bag — so much warmth to cuddle up under. This is a great gift for the ski racing parents on your list too — spectating a ski race in freezing temps is no joke. Our Arctica Gate Master Down Coat XT fits easily over ski racing gear and looks sharp anywhere else. Anyone on your list will love cozying up in this long down coat during early morning training, warming up from a race run in mid-January temps, or out to a ski town dinner on a winter night.


A New Race Suit

Maybe your favorite ski racer has been rocking the same race suit for a few years and could use a style upgrade, or perhaps their speed suit is tattered from years of abuse. Arctica’s race suits bring top-of-the-line fit and function to an affordable price point. You can’t go wrong with one of our race suits, powered by our exclusive NexGen fabric, engineered with extra stretch for comfort and the ability to fit all body types well. We made this ski racing suit for everyone. Kids with their first race on the calendar, top FIS racers, or masters with years of experience will feel right at home in an Arctica suit.  


protective bag for ski racing suit

Race Suit Carry Bag

The perfect stocking stuffer! Traveling to and from the mountain can be rough on a race suit. Velcro and other abrasive items also thrown into a bag can mar a race suit with pilling and scuffs. To protect that expensive and important piece of equipment, stuff it into a race suit carry bag, and it’ll last that much longer. 


Gift Card for Ski Racers
