Aaron's Bio

The fresh pow gets me going the most in a morning. I love having that fresh hit you in the face and it feels like you're choking. Whether I'm on my Big ol' Burton or K2 Seth's it's all chill.

I love rockin' at Brighton or in the BC off of the Milly lift. The Wolverine cirque is epic and love that place. If I'm not at my "home resort" i'm usually at Solitude chillin out in Honeycomb or Alta/The Bird.

In the summer I do a little bikin, a little hikin, a little backpackin and all that other jazz.

That's it for me.

Peace and love to all you other BC addicts!

They aren't for sale yet. They are being listed on Stoic's website and they link to this page to show who will be selling them. If you contact the Gearheads they should be able to give you a date of when they'll be available.

Wherever you're hearing that they are less versatile and slower is just a lie. Wide snowboards have a purpose and their purpose is to give a good board to people who generally have a size 11.5 or bigger boot. They are going to built the exact same way as their narrower friends but just have a little bit wider of a base to accomodate for width. I personally ride a wide board, since my boot is 13. Neither slower or less versatile, if you have the foot size and overall size to handle the extra width it will actually perform better for you than a narrower board.

No changes that I've seen or heard of actually. Dimensions remain the same, construction remains the same as well. The only difference might be a slight weight difference but that would be minimal. Generally skis will get lighter from year to year just with advancement of technologies and such.

Great touring ski though if you're looking into it!

I bought this watch a little over a month ago and it has gotten quite a bit of use in that one month. Living in Utah in Spring, you get a lot of opportunity to ski and hike. I got to put this to the test. All in all, there is nothing negative I can say about this watch. The Altimeter works great, very little discrepancy from the actual altitude (as long as the weather holds). It is very easy to change the reference points though so if the Barometric Pressure does change you can get it reference again very easily. I love the Storm Alarm feature, I was hiking in southern Utah a few weeks ago in some slot canyons and couldn't see the sky. Suddenly my watch started beeping and I was able to see that a storm was approaching. I was able to get out before it started raining which was great. The alarm is quite loud for such a small unit. 100% waterproof, me being the gear junkie I am, I tested this out. I submerged it for around 5 minutes and there were no problems with water getting into the housing. The only really negative thing (which isn't a big deal) is the strap on the one I got. I know I'll have to replace it soon as it's already starting to show some signs of wear, with me wearing it pretty much 24/7. not a big deal though, the replacements are cheap. Battery life has been immensely improved in the newer models. I've seen complaints about the thermometer not working either...you need to take it off of your wrist for it to be accurate. If not it will just pick up the heat from your body and give an inaccurate reading. All in all, the best altimeter I've ever used.

Yes, I'm a male. Yes I carry this diaper bag. I bought it since I do quite a bit with my nephew. This bag pretty much rocks, doesn't look like a diaper bag at all and overall doesn't really look like it would be a women's bag. All sorts of pockets in this thing as well as a large size. Can hold pretty much everything, I use this for days when I'm around town or a small hike with the kid and don't want to carry a backpack. The included/matching changing mat is awesome if you're still in the diaper phase since you can use it everywhere. Also with this pack being 67% recycled you're being eco-friendly as well. Do it to it everyone!

I bought this to carry my nephew around when hiking. It's an overall awesome kid carrier, highly durable, a decent amount of storage space for say a Probar or other snacks for the child. I just wasn't able to get a good fit with it at all. I'm a bigger guy, 6'2 and about 270 and this fit with no room for the child to get into the carrier. I ended up having to give it to my sister to use since it just didn't fit me well. Just know if you're a bigger individual this probably won't work for you. I'd suggest going with something that you carry on your back.

I bought one of these for my use and my parents use for my nephew. This thing is pimp. Very sturdy stroller. Huge wheels which can go over a variety of terrain and works very well while jogging. The attached wrist strap is great in case you take a spill while running and don't want your stroller to go flying down the street. A lot of space to store items, easily will store a small backpack in the under seat bin. The suspension/strap system for the child seems to be very comfortable for them and highly adjustable for differnt sizes. I would give this stroller a 6/5, just an overall great stroller. It can be kind of heavy to lift into a trunk or into a cargo box for a smaller individual but folds fairly small so that it will stow easily.

My girlfriend loves this bag. It isn't so big that it's a target for a potential purse grabber but it's not so small that all you can put in it is gum and mints. It's small overall but once open has quite a bit of room. A huge number of pockets, the material seems highly water resistant if you get caught in the rain. Also it is very tear/abrasion resistant. Highly adjustable strap to wear it loose or tight if you wish to. Comes with an attached ID holder/small wallet which is nice for nights you just want to carry something to the bar. She loves the purse. 5/5 overall!

I bought these for my girlfriend per her request and she loves them. They're a comfortable leather material as well as have a classier look to them so you can wear them in a business casual situation. Good overall arch support and the straps mold to your foot with wear. They dry quickly and keep odor down, she's worn them for a couple weeks now and they still smell like brand new leather (yes I smelled them for review purposes). Overall a great flip flop.

I bought these for my girlfriend and she absolutely loves them. She owns 5 other pairs of Chaco's ranging from the flip flops to the Z1 and Z2. She wanted something that was in between the two and these are exactly what she needed. Very easy to adjust, she says they're comfortable as well. A flip flop with enough support and stability to take a small hike in, these are perfect for that.

I honestly wish I could live in a house this stylish and well built. The single BEST housing my camera has ever seen and that's saying a lot as I've gone through at least 10 different bags in the last 7 years. This thing is amazing, you'll be suprised by the weight when you get the pack. Much heavier than you think but in my opinion that's the best part about it. The camera block is very very well padded and has a hard external type frame around it. The back panel is very firm and rigid adding even more protection. I took a pretty good fall on a steep with this pack on and my camera inside, landed flat on my back with no damage to my camera or lenses. The suspension is great for being just a casual daypack type pack. A ton of pockets for anything that you could think about putting in the pack. The material is highly water resistant. Carries a tripod or shovel/poles very well. All in all the best pack I've ever used and probably the most durable.

These shoes rock, I have three separate colors now. Green, Grass Green and the Dark Blue. The colors are vivid and bright, very good looking. I like to wear them without the laces although they do add some added classiness/style. Usual Sanuk quality and comfort on these. Truly amazing shoes.

I love these things. I picked up a couple of pairs last summer and so far this year I just bought one more. These things are amazingly soft, yet supportive at the same time. The strap on them is very comfortable and doesn't rub you the wrong way. Don't get these wet though, they'll turn a funky color, so avoid water at all costs. All in all one of the best pairs of flip flops I've ever owned. VIVA LA SANUK!

I have these paired with my Custom X Wide and I can't show in words my love for the set up. First off, these bindings are NOT A FREESTYLE BINDING. A lot of people in the past couple of years have been thinking the Cartel is a freestyle binding since there are some pros using it. Pros are using it as a pipe/kicker binding, which it works great as, it's terrible for jibs. It's extremely stiff, one of Burton's stiffest bindings which makes it perfect for my freeride oriented style. Extremely responsive and lightweight.

The straps are easy on and easy off, Burton's ratchet system is hands down the best in the business. The ultra capstrap is perfect for whether you want it over the foot or over your toe. Extremely comfortable cushioning in the footbed and the high back is huge giving it some extra response and control at higher speeds.

I love this binding, it's perfect for what it's meant to be. A stiff, freeride binding.

I'm finally ready to make my big review for the Custom X. I bought this board a while ago and wanted to give it a good long use before reviewing it. As you can see from the stars my initial impressions were good.

This board is the shit. I absolutely love it, I've been boarding for 12 years now and this is hands down the best board I've ever owned or been on. It's much stiffer than I was expecting. This makes it the perfect board for me, I'm by nature a Freeride oriented rider. Steep and deep is where I hang. I wanted something that was stiff but not Never Summer Titan TX stiff as a board for me. This Custom X fits the bill. It's stiff and responsive but not so stiff that it's completely unforgiving. Great edge to edge hold and control. The N20 WFO Vision base is one of the fastest on the market and this board proves it. I've yet to be caught when I open it up. Doesn't chatter at high speeds and keeps on trucking when you're throwing some serious g's into a turn.

I am also a cliff/natural jump rider which is the extent of my freestyle use. It works wonders for that in my opinion. Enough forgiveness to let you pull out of some sketch landings but not so much that it will just slop out from underneath you. Lightweight for easy spin initiation.

I would say on a 10 scale, I give this board an 11. I've been looking at it for years and finally pulled the trigger on it. Happy I did.

I wore Patagonia underwear for years but like others have said they changed their design in the past year or so and I've had to look elsewhere for true comfort. I finally settled on these because of the amazing reviews. I'm adding my own amazing review in the mix. These are hands down the most comfortable boxer briefs I've ever worn. The waistband is amazing, thick and doesn't fold. The seams are in perfect places for the anatomy of the body giving them a lot of comfort in any position and also gives them some added mobility. They stretch quite a bit as well which adds to comfort so you don't feel restricted. Quick drying, you can wear them for days without washing (which I know guys love) and so far I haven't had any problems with them riding up. 5/5, I love these

Been using Patagonia underwear for years and they recently changed the design so I've had to look elsewhere. After much deliberation I finally decided on these. Extremely comfortable, the waist band is amazing since it doesn't fold over. That's one of my biggest pet peeves with underwear. You can barely tell you have these on. The only problem I've seen with them is that they tend to ride up a bit when they're new. It goes away after use but the first couple of uses you might get some riding up. Overall a great pair of boxer briefs
