A salute to skiing state of the art-as well as the simply superlative-in gear, gadgets, people, innovations, cars, coffee, beer, and more. Even though 2000 isn't technically the start of the new millennium, all those zeros lined up in a row make the coming year special. Year 2000 signals the beginning of a new era-a perfect time to herald all that's cool and new in the world of skiing.

To come up with our mostly subjective list of Bests, we polled SKIING's contributors and editors as well as freeskiers and industry insiders. In some categories (skis, boots, and beer, to name a few), we spent months rigorously testing product. In other areas (like "most bitchin' lookin' shades" and "best place to shake your booty"), we simply picked the stuff or place or person we think rocks. That said, the envelopes please....

Pick up the September 1999 issue of SKIING Magazine to browse the Best of 2000.

Here are some SKIING's picks for the Best of 2000:

  • Best-Looking Boards

  • Comfiest, Grippiest Snow Shoe

  • Gore-Tex Goggles?

  • Best New Boot Technology

  • Details, Details

  • Most Spectacular Female Freeskier

  • Fab Fabric
