This Steamboat Springs based outfit has been handcrafting skis for over 100 years. Built using layers of fiberglass, Kevlar, carbon fiber, and wood, with full-edge sidecuts, they’re ideal for fast, smooth, and stable carved-turn skiing.
We’re currently in Tokyo for a few days, so there’s no better time to feature this hilarious bit of old Japanese TV in which they launched a series of car and truck tires down a ski ramp to see how far they would fly. We’re pretty sure this is how Katamari Damacy started.
Like many people, we could use a little assist with our ski technique. CARV’s high-tech insoles and motion sensor modules collect data on your foot pressure, balance, turning, speed, and overall control. Its companion smartphone app provides audible coaching and stats tracking.
The Sheffield Ski Village once was home to the UK’s largest man-made ski slope. The facility was destroyed by fire in 2012. A group of freeskiers recently returned to the abandoned slope to drum up support for bringing the park back to life.
It’s fun and easy to use Burton’s Beeracuda outdoors year round. Keep a tidy six pack of cold cans in the insulated sleeve, and reward yourself for your efficiency by placing a bonus can for yourself in the koozie-enhanced shoulder strap.
Keep it cool ripping the piste this Spring with Bern’s sleek Kingston helmet. 16 air vents and external slider keep you breezy; Zip Mold Plus® technology keeps the low profile lid strong but light. It has a sweet Bluetooth-ready knit liner too.
What we would give to see the young girl in this video as she musters up the courage to pull off her first ever ski jump. We’ll have to settle for an adorable audio overload. Can you really blame her for being nervous staring down that incline?
