    Backcountry Touring Poles

    Looking for a pair of adjustable length poles to use for touring. That being said I have always had an affinity to the poles with the extended foam grips on them that kind of have rings to place your fingers between going down the whole foam section (does that make sense)? Does anyone know what...

    Safety Colorado Front Range Avalanche Safety Courses

    Getting into the backcountry and being able to ski/navigate (not to mention have a good time) is one of my biggest goals as a skier right now. Naturally, no one wants to get caught out in bad conditions, so I want to skill build to be able to recognize avalanche conditions and have some basic...

    Black Crows Atris, Faction Prodigy 4.0, or Dynastar LEGEND X106 for Freeride?

    I am going to be getting into freeride skiing soon. It will be mostly cliff drops, trees, and powder, but I would also enjoy using them for everyday. I am trying to decide between these three skis, if you have any feedback, just comment below, or if there are any other skis, I am up for...

    Drinking and Skiing

    As a group, at least one of us carries a flask during the day (esp those bitter cold days), and sometimes at lunch, enjoy an (yes one) adult beverage. But, we don't go out on the mountain intoxicated at all. We want to have a great, safe day on the mountain, enjoy aprés' at the end of the day...

    Why our feet make skiing feel sexy

    I was just reminded of an article that I first read in 2011 and thought it was worth sharing....again. The joy of sliding: Why our feet make skiing feel so sexy Skiing’s sexy mojo might just be a marketing ploy combined with a sharky singles scene and Hollywood hype, but a close look at the...

    @Tricia and I were just watching ESPN and one of the topics that was just discussed was "cankles" and how it related to speed of an athlete. The host was an ex-NFL player and mentioned that he never saw a fast or quick player that had fat ankles, or "cankles". As a boottfitter I have seen many...

    Review: Transpack Competition Pro Boot/Gear Bag

    Why would someone want a boot/gear bag so massive that they can literally haul all their stuff plus their kids’ stuff up to the mountain and yet not be able to carry it on an airplane because it is so massive? I asked myself this question at the airport, shortly before boarding a plane to...
