For the skiing-savvy person on your list, these Christmas gifts for skiers are perfectly suited for the slopes.

Skiing and snowboarding gear has come a long way from simply protecting you from the elements; those who want a more technologically advanced experience have a wide array of options for staying connected out on the hill. Ski goggles like the Oakley Airwaves are fully functioning devices that can connect to the Internet, keep track of you and your friends' locations and even help you send a text while you're out enjoying some fresh powder.

Additionally, there are items like the GoPro Cameras that will be able to capture your experience without having to worry about busting or water-logging traditional cameras.
