Try an Envy Ski Frame

If you ever longingly gazed at a snowboarder’s footwear as you stiffly skied and hobbled in your ski boots, an Envy Ski Frame could be for you. The Golden-based company manufactures ski frames that support snowboard boots, providing comfort and flexibility while skiing the mountain and strolling around the ski lodge.

The lightweight frames have a four-strap system that provides ample support and are compatible with all standard alpine ski bindings. Envy Ski Frames are $379 and come in two sizes: medium and large. However, the company recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money so it can begin the process of designing and engineering kids’ sizes. For more information, visit
