Expect to see a new SkiTalk rig at a hill near you. We will be traveling in a new vehicle: gone is the SS Pugski (our navy blue 2008 GMC Yukon XL), so we want to introduce our winter white 2018 Yukon XL, aka the SS SkiTalk.


The rebranding of Pugski.com was the perfect time to send the SS Pugski out to pasture. We accumulated almost 200,000 mi on the trusty vehicle, with countless adventures to almost every major resort in the West and Midwest (numerous times), and we were ready for a new look with the SS SkiTalk.

Tricia, I, and everyone involved want to to thank all of our test team sponsors who help make the upgrade possible.

  • Salomon: The official binding of SkiTalk’s test fleet.​
  • Toko: Waxes and tuning supplies that make our test skis ski as well as they can.​
  • Kulkea: Thermal Trekker boot bags so we start our days with warm feet in winter, and all-new OTRmost cycling products so we better enjoy summer.​
  • LEKI: Summer and winter, LEKI poles do the job.​
  • Giro: Helmets and goggles for skiing and cycling.​
  • SkiSkootys: Letting us walk to the lift safely in an era of booting up at your car.​


And of course, our media partner, US Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame: Where we can help promote the heritage of our sport.​

We would like to extend compliments to @Dave Petersen for his vision and artwork with past and present graphics.
