Before trekking to tingly climes, bundle up in a new winter coat (starting at $79 for kids and $149 for adults) from a brand name such as The North Face, Patagonia, or Obermeyer. Scandinavian Ski and Snowboard Shop also shills hats, gloves, fleeces, and sweaters to keep bodies warm as they sashay through snowy trails and challenge yetis to long-lasting hugs.
Scandinavian Ski and Snowboard Shop
Since 1964, Scandinavian Ski and Snowboard Shop has been outfitting its Chicagoland clientele for wintertime adventures. In 2011, readers of the Daily Herald singled out the shop as being among the best in the area. Inside its warm, wood- and brick-walled space, customers can peruse boots, bindings, snowboards, and skis, as well as cold-weather attire from brands including Burton, Patagonia, Spyder, Arc’teryx, and more. Additional accessories such as goggles, gloves, stocking caps, and helmets keep outdoor explorers bundled up more securely than King Tut before lying down for a fateful afternoon nap.
