Best Snow Gear Deals: REI End-of-Season Sale and More


This week, we at the Gadget Lab were all aflutter with the news that the Samsung Galaxy S10, the large phone with the hole-punch camera that our reviewer Jeffrey Van Camp called the best new Android phone, finally went on sale on March 8. But if you don’t need a new phone, now is also a great time to pick up some other big-ticket items.

This weekend, REI’s End of Season Sale kicks off, through March 11. We found some of the best markdowns on our favorite past-season gear, from heated ski boots to sustainable snowboards and more. The final sales on snowgear hopefully mark the beginning of warmer days to come. We’re ready! And don’t worry, indoor cats. We have a few deals on games, universal remotes, and other WIRED favorites for you too.

Terrible name aside, the First Luvs are the skis from K2’s women-specific Luv Collection, and they have a gentle, forgiving rocker and BioKonic technology that’s designed to make them turn as easily as possible. They also come with Marker ERP 10 bindings that accommodate almost every size of boot.
