In a story last week for Forbes, I virtually equipped the "Ski Gadget Man," a hypothetical downhiller outfitted head to toe with the latest and greatest in this season's ski gear.
The clickable graphic of the man is essentially a neat way to do a gear guide: Scroll over the helmet, goggles, gloves, poles, boots, etc., and a pop-up window details each of the nine choice products I picked.
Altogether the assemblage comprises a near-$4,000 fantasy package for the aspiring alpinist.
Here's a peek at the gear I picked. . .
