A look at the best free Android Ski Apps for 2013.
Last Spring, I had the chance to demo some handmade Ski Logik Front Burner’s from the Sports Exchange in Truckee, CA. With the limited snowfall curtailing my sidestash activities, it was the perfect time to have some front side fun and get on a pair of real carving skis. > > Read More
They were on my feet when I walked up to Mt. Everest Base Camp and higher, on up to Kala Pathar. I wore them while hiking the pass from Nepal into Tibet through the snowstorm when the road was not yet open for the year.
So it has been over a year since I reviewed the Budfits earphone holders from Innovelis. I am still using them regularly and am happy with their performance. The soft plastic is still plyable and not brittle and they are still the same opaque-ness that they were when I first un-packaged them. They have not yellowed [...] Related posts: Budfits Earphone Holder Review Upcoming Reviews: Contour, Budfits, Reef Sandals & Hobie Sunglasses Hobie Surfrider Polarized Sunglasses Review
After buying my new mountain bike recently, I decided to get some new pedals as well. In my un-illustrious biking career, I have really only used the tried and true Shimano SPD variety of clipless pedals. So I figured new bike means I should get new pedals. Knowing that there are plenty of different pedal [...] No related posts.
Let’s face it, skiing and snowboarding are expensive activities.

I had the opportunity to ski with Peter and Bob, former Ski Patrollers at Heavenly Ski Area on St Patrick’s Day last weekend. Who better to take me to all the goods than former Patrollers? It was perfect timing as I arrived just when a cold storm was just rolling into the Sierra Nevada and the snow level was [...]

This one certainly caught me by surprise, but Vail Associaties has now purchased Kirkwood Ski Resort in South Lake Tahoe California. I think Kirkwood is a great ski area, right up there with below the radar resorts like Powder Mountain, Bridger Bowl and Schweitzer Mountain. What surprises is me is that Vail would buy a [...]
I was able to get a quickie update from Bill Wanrooy of Epic Planks. Although many shops and ski manufacturers have slowed down a little this season with the under-whelming snowfall throughout many parts of the North America, Epic Planks is not one of them. Bill is happy to announce that Epic Planks is launching a new webisode series in conjunction with [...]
It was brutal last night and I am not even sure why or even how I made it on the mountain today. I’m feeling so rugged and I really don’t want someone to even think about chatting me up on the lift. When I’m just out for a cruise with my stallwart’s the Arbor Element is what I’m strapped into. When I’m feeling [...]
So you bought a fat pair of skis last year that was supposed to a one ski quiver or an 80/20 ski. And this year our Old Man Winter hasn’t yet let our beloved La Nina out to play yet. Those fatties just aren’t cutting it on the hardpack. Well, with the epic conditions [...]
Rocky Mountain Underground had a busy off-season last Summer. After a record selling 2010-11 year, they were trying to get things under control at home in Breckenridge, CO. So they’ve moved into a new office space since the snow stopped falling in 2011. However, there’s one problem. Already, they don’t think its going to be [...]

With the lack of snow and even the lack of cold weather in many regions so far, the 2011-12 skiing and snowboarding season has gotten off to a subpar start. Hand in hand with people not going out to play on the mountain, understandably so, they also have not been frequenting the winter apparel and gear retailers. [...]
The drought is over! At least that is what you need to tell yourself, otherwise you may not ski or snowboard again this season.

When I try to describe my ski trip to Powder Mountain to someone, I usually say it was “weird”. I get a funny look from them as if they were expecting me to say something else, “Snow was great”, “snow was junk”, “wow, tons of powder there”, “I’m not sure why they call it Powder Mountain [...]
