2015 Mountain Top Picks: What The Divas Loved This Year

You’ll never find a lack of opinions on TheSkiDiva.com. We have views on just about everything ski related: gear, apparel, resorts, you name it. After all, we Divas aren’t ones to hold back. If there’s something we love, we make sure everyone knows it. And if something doesn’t make the grade, well, we let it all hang out, too.

That’s where our Mountain Top Picks come in. Each year, we vote on the best of the best from the past season. And though there’s no awards ceremony, no fancy statuette, not even a cheesy certificate, the winners get the honor of being named a Diva favorite (they can even use this neat little logo, if they like). And really, isn’t that enough?

    Diva, I agree with everything you say but have you tried Vermont-made Darn Tough ski socks, not the light one but the padded ones. They are awesome. Padded ones are hard to find. Sam’s in Keene’s, NH carries them but they quickly sell out. The pattern has daisies on them.

      Hi, Martha —

      Yes, I have Darn Tough socks and absolutely love them! As a Vermonter, I think I’d be
      drummed out of the state if I didn’t. Personally, I prefer the light ones — not the
      ones that are padded. The lighter ones fit better in my ski boots.
