How to Stay Warm When Skiing

Vermont winters give you a mix of weather, so having the right gear to get you through it is critical. Your day could start out with a high humidity snowfall and suddenly change to high winds and low temps.  Layering correctly is key to making sure you stay warm when skiing and get a good long day in on the hill. On your upper body, start at the skin with a wicking base layer. Add a mid-layer for insulation and a waterproof/breathable outer... Keep Reading: How to Stay Warm When Skiing

the holy grail “one ski quiver” – Kastle FX 84 Ski

If you’re searching for the holy grail “one ski quiver” you owe it to yourself to try the Kastle FX 84 Ski. Put it on an edge and you can crank a turn that shows its 14 meter radius. I’m just in from skiing the end of a day with typical New England mixed hard pack, powder, scraped off ice, crud and it shines in all that stuff. 84 under foot and the tip rocker combine for very decent carving along with easier transitions...

Atomic Bent Chetler Ski

My personal fat ski choice! I have this ski in the 185 cm length. It is 120 under foot with a 19 meter turning radius. 30 % Rocker in the tip and tail. Skied this after the big snow the other day at Magic Mountain. WOW! This is a fun ski. It was like floating over clouds all day. Very easy to turn for such a wide platform (if you like turning 🙂 ). This is my #1 choice for all Alta and Snowbird powder skiing. After skiing the Bent Chetler,... Keep Reading: Atomic Bent Chetler Ski

Nordica Soul Rider Ski

Well, I was disappointed that winter storm Juno was a bust up here in Vermont. I still decided to ski Bromley Mountain during the height of the storm. I was hoping to sooth the building rage that the disappointing storm was creating. I took out the Nordica Soul Rider (for the first time) and after the first couple of turns, I was singing “I’m a soul man…”. The Soul Rider was able to handle all the conditions...

Nordica Nemesis Ski

I ski on race skis most of the time so being on these skis was a lot different.  I liked the skis.  They were a lot of fun.  They ski really well on bumps, ice and even woods.  The only thing that I wouldn’t use them for would be on the race coarse.  It would be a little hard.  I would love to ski them again if I could.

Nordica Patron Ski

Nordica Patron: Racer types, DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE FAT SKI, the Nordica Patron can ski all conditions and terrain.  I tested this on groomed hard pack and was able to rip some awesome, trench producing GS turns and without a blink of an eye, whip out some tight energetic SL turns. I have been a racer for 40 years and love skiing on my race skis, that is until I stepped on the Patron.  On race skis I spent 99% of my time on the groomers,... Keep Reading: Nordica Patron Ski

Dalbello KR2 Kryzma ID Ski Boot

Dalbello Kryzma: I love the warmth of the intuition liner with the boot. I like the 3 buckle style. The middle buckle catches my instep and really holds my heel in place. This boot has been great in the park, and all around! Really enjoyed the control in the trees at Killington the other day.
