With ski season imminent, now is an auspicious moment to stock up on boss new gear. Gorsuch Ltd., Vail's venerable ski haberdasher, offers this rugged ski tube, $100. The telescoping sarcophagus (in red, black, blue or yellow) swallows a pair of alpine skis and poles and is accepted by United Parcel Service and Federal Express for shipping.
