Après ski, literally meaning "after ski" encompasses so much more than a thirst quenching beer and a plate of nachos (although that does sound good). A person's après ski clothing, accessories and gear are just as important. With so much new and awesome stuff out there, it is tough to pick that perfect gift for the skier and rider in your life. Don't worry, we've taken the time to narrow it down for you in this accessory themed après ski holiday gift guide.
