Soul Stocking Stuffers
Looking for some last minute gift ideas?
We've got you covered with gifts that can be used all season long! Check out a few recommendations from our crew, and book an appointment online to come and grab your holiday goods!
1. Backcountry Safety Gear
Know someone keen on getting into the backcountry this year? Or maybe their stoked on hitting the dive? Make sure they're travelling safely with the essential avalanche safety gear: a transceiver, a probe, and a shovel. Purchase them separately or package them together. The box on the complete set cuts out the awkward gift wrapping of a probe ;).
Price: $59.99 - $549.99

2. New Goggles (!!!)
Instead of stuffing someones stocking with fake coal or a new toothbrush, give them something to look forward to using - like a pair of Salomon Lo-Fi goggles. These goggles come with two lenses, and have an incredibly easy changing system (so not the gift for puzzle fanatics). Also on the shelves: Salomon's Aksium goggle. One lens, no fuss, all vis.
Price: $75 - $150
Stop by the shop to check out different lenses and styles!
3. A Helmet
Can't go full send without a helmet - right? With a selection of Smith, K2, Salomon helmets, and even one or two Sweet Protections kicking around, we have something for every head and style. Make sure you're getting the right size for your end user - or buy a new one for yourself, we won't tell.
Price: $99 - $239
4. Fresh Socks
Socks are no longer a boring present - especially when they come from Le Bent or Darn Tough! We carry ski, trail, and general outdoors socks (spoiler - they can be worn inside as well), so they can be the perfect stocking stuffer whether their intended recipient is out bombing the hill, or at home binging Netflix.
Price: $34.99 - $64.95
Find it Online or stop in at the shop for more selection!
5. A Ski or Boot Bag
So they already have a backpack, a hip pack, a snack pack, and a duffel bag.. but do they have a boot bag? Or a ski bag? Cut out the hassle of ski or boot storage while on the road, at home, or when you can finally take that international ski vacay you've been dreaming of. Our Salomon boot bags can also be an excellent piece of fabric to stand on while getting ready at your vehicle - versatile.
Price: $60 - $300
6. A Soul Toque
Your favourite ski shop + you're favourite piece of Canadian winter headgear. Seems like a no brainer! Keep you head warm through all your parking lot lunches and apres. Also great for hiding the fact that you've been to busy skiing to take a shower.
Price: $30 - $50
7. The Anywhere Shower
Perfect for the hiker, biker, skier, etc. in your life. Easy to pack, easy to use, easy on the nose.
Price: $3.49 - $4.49

8. A New Mug
Need a new vessel to sip your "coffee" out of on Christmas morning? Might we recommend a festive green Banff Soul enamel mug. Perfect for whatever you want to sip in front of the Christmas tree, around a campfire, or after a cold day ripping laps at your favourite mountain. For the ultimate gift, pair it with a gift card from our neighbours Wild Flour, or a bag of beans from Banff Roasting Company!
9. Hand + Feet Warmers
Can't give your friends a warm holiday hug this year because of the Covid restrictions? Go with the second-best option, and keep them warm on the mountain all season long with a supply of hand and feet warmers. With lodges closed for the next few weeks, these might be the most underrated gift of the year.
Stop by the shop to grab one or twenty - cold days are coming!
Do they really need a new pair of boots or have their eye on a pair of skis you can't remember the name of? No worries! Give them a gift card, and let us help them find the perfect hard gear for their needs.
Price: You Decide!
Make an appointment to stop by the shop and chat with one of our expert ski bums - they'll be happy to help you find the perfect gift, whether it's for family, a friend, or for yourself.
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas from the crew at Soul!
