Holiday Gifts for the Cool Kid on Your List

Holiday Gifts for the Cool Kid on Your List
Will Hibbs and Leif Botzojourns
What, like we know? No way. But we know whom to ask for gift ideas that your teen boy will love.

Meet Leif and Will, two rippers from Mount Mansfield Union High School (Jericho, Vt.) and Stowe’s Mount Mansfield Ski Club. We’ve known them since they were they were little J-6 racers at Cochran’s Ski Club. They used to win races—in the Northern Vermont Council, which is saying something.

Bag It

Clumsy happens. Especially where ski gloves and small gadgets are concerned. It’s only a matter of time before your cell phone, iPod or camera tumbles to the snow or gets soaked in a soggy spring storm. But don’t assume your waterlogged electronics are washed up. Toss them into the Bheestie Bag ($20). Powerful moisture-absorbing beads pull water molecules out. Dry phones are happy phones. bheestie.com

Call it in

You love your phone, but would you trust it with your life? Cell reception remains spotty at most ski areas, and it’s less reliable the farther you venture into the backcountry. For safety’s sake, you’re better off with a two-way radio, such as the Motorola MR350 ($80), which has a range of up to 35 miles, seven NOAA channels that broadcast weather conditions and a one-touch emergency alert feature. The radios are also a hit with kids. motorola.com
