Volkl Attiva Aurora

rated 4.5 of 5 stars "Strong enough for a man, but made for a woman" just like SECRET deodorant used to be! Ha Ha. If you read my intro and thought "Oh no, he's reviewing women's deodorant", you'll be sadly mistaken. In fact, I'm reviewing a pair of alpine (downhill) skis. Full disclosure: I'm a 6'1" and ~230lb adult man who proudly and confidently rides this pair of Volkl women's skis. I'll start with a little backstory for context: in the fall of 2014, I was not yet an alpine skier. I had attempted to ski on ONE… Full review

Rossignol BC 65

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very good all purpose skis that will work back country and in track. I've had these for like eight years and use them four or five times a year. We like to hit some trails about 10 miles from the house and Yellowstone Cooke City area mostly. These work well in powder out in Yellowstone or in track when we have been there. Good skis, can't go wrong. Full review

Black Diamond AMPerage

rated 5 of 5 stars Super playful skis. Stable, will never let you down. Those skis have been following me for five years now. Big mountain, backcountry skiing, skins, name it. They are stable and durable, very playful skis. I am able to go on powder as much as groomed resort skiing (great on ice too!). The only downside from my experience is that the aesthetic coating of the ski peels off on the ends where I clip my skins. But other than that, great product. Full review

Shred Slam Cap NoSeason

rated 5 of 5 stars A lightweight, all-season helmet featuring the latest in safety technology. This helmet has the best fitting system I have ever worn. Warm when needed with excellent ventilation. I was lucky enough to score a Shred Slam Cap NoSeason helmet early in the ski season in order to give it a through testing. I had been hoping for some time to get the chance to check out a helmet that featured the latest in helmet safety. This multi-sport helmet is certified to meet the latest US and EU regulations for… Full review

G3 Expedition Skins

rated 3 of 5 stars Decent traction but a bit less glide than other brands. Tip metal loops need RIVETING to stay attached! Tail clips are fine. My G3 Expedition skins are 10 years old but still work OK even though getting worn down a bit and needing seasonal re-applications of glue. My gripe is that the metal loops (which must be sized for your wide or narrow ski tips) tend to let go when the self-glued skin that doubles back to hold them lets go. I had to rivet my loops in place. Newer style "tip pockets" may be… Full review

Smith Men's Vantage Helmet

rated 5 of 5 stars Best helmet on the market in my opinion! The Vantage was designed for hard-core skiers/riders; it features an amazing ventilation system, BOA on the fly adjustment system, and Koroyd aerocore construction which makes it one of the lightest snow helmets on the market. Testing I purchased this helmet at the beginning of the 2016-17 ski season and have now used it for 22 days of skiing in conditions that vary from extremely cold (-15 degrees) to temps just below freezing. On a couple of occasions I've… Full review

Meindl Nordic 3-Pin Backcountry Leather Ski Boots

rated 5 of 5 stars Telemarking is not dead and neither are these boots. Incredible value for money, these boots have lasted me over 30 years. Not much of my gear has done as well as these boots. But after 30 years I am ready for an upgrade. I bought these beautiful Meindl duckbill 3-pin or 75mm boots in the 1980s. They cost a lot of money back then. Pulled them out again this year for a short cross-country / back-country adventure and they still impressed. I never dreamed that they would last 30 (+) years, but they… Full review

Line Skis Mastermind

rated 4 of 5 stars Great short, light skis for skinning and riding most conditions. These skis came to me via Craigslist. They had been purchased and mounted with touring bindings in 2014 and never ridden for two years. I drove across the state to swoop up this deal. These are the first brand-new skis I have purchased. I got them in 172cm, which is a little short for me but that was sort of the plan since I am a moderate skier and I intend to carry them places.  Dimensions: 115/85/112 (@172cm) More specs:,default,pd.html… Full review

Blizzard Zero G 95

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Light and stiff tails, hold an edge like crazy. Only skied one day on them. So solid. Grip a solid surface at any speed. Would love to ski them on some pow. So light they are easy turn in tele or alpine. Full review
