Atomic Crimson Ti = All Around Performance = Fun

Atomic Crimson Ti Ski = All Around Performance = Fun.  And I had a blast.  Typical late day New England: powder down the edges and the middle scraped off with a bit of boiler plate peeking thru. Rocker front and rear made surface transitions easy, and didn’t keep it from cutting into the hard stuff. I was on the 170 (usually on 160-163 lengths). That center camber section carved great. And the ski didn’t feel long. Can’t... Keep Reading: Atomic Crimson Ti = All Around Performance = Fun

The Nordica Firearrow 84 Pro 160 is a very nice package!

If you’re looking for a front side carver the Nordica Firearrow 84 Pro EVO Ski 2014 could be the ski for you. Out on a cold grey day on firm New England groomers this ski bit right in. A full camber lets you count on its entire length. Plenty stiff, and the wood core keeps it smooth. Tip and tail shape go with the 84 under foot for versatility. 15.5 R lets it come around quick. Very nice package! Jim – The Boot Pro Team Member Keep Reading: The Nordica Firearrow 84 Pro 160 is a very nice package!

Atomic Panic Ski

The Atomic Panic Ski 2014 is the perfect All-Mountain Twin Tip. The ski has an 87 underfoot dimension, 15% rocker in the tip and 10% in the tail. This is a very versatile twin-tip. It carves well, but will also ski the powder and choppy snow well. At 87 underfoot, also perfect for stomping landings, and ripping through the park. With a sale price of $399(flat), it is hard to beat on value. Enjoy. Matt – The Boot Pro Team Member Keep Reading: Atomic Panic Ski

Mountain Hardwear – Very nice gear!

I took the Mountain Hardwear Chinley 3L Jacketout last week during the cold snow day. It was awesome! Warm, Dry, and nice pit zips. Match this piece up with the Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer Jacket, and you will be set for any day on the hill. The Ghost Whisperer is 850 fill down that weighs less than 8 ounces. Amazing. I love that jacket too. Talk about warm and light. Very nice gear. Matt – The Boot Pro Team Member Keep Reading: Mountain Hardwear – Very nice gear!

OMG the Kastle MX 83 is outrageous!

OMG the Kastle MX 83 Ski 2014is outrageous. Front side skiing the 153 on a typically firm New England day: beautiful groomed/hard pack/little boiler plate then some sugar pushed to the edge. It’s so well behaved. Initiate turns, easy. Smooth on an edge. Enough energy return to pop tight turns (the r13 is nice). Then carve a big arc, add a little bit of knee input and it tightens right up. No doubts hitting the plowed up sugar.... Keep Reading: OMG the Kastle MX 83 is outrageous!
