With 8 days until Christmas, if you haven't purchased a gift for your powder-loving partner, you're in trouble. Make up for it with custom skis from Igneous, a Jackson Hole ski and snowboard company that makes gear strong enough to handle multiple seasons in the Tetons. Long before the rest of the ski-industry went bigger and fatter, Igneous was pushing out fat powder skis with their signature wood topsheets. These bomb-proof, luxury custom powder skis run anywhere from $1,600 to $3,500 and require 4-6 weeks of construction. You won't have the skis by Christmas, but this gift's so awesome we think the skier in your life won't care too much. Available here.
