Born in Louisiana, grew up in Boise, Idaho and moved out to Salt Lake in 2008 to study accounting at the University of Utah...but mostly because the mountains are bigger and badder.
In the winter you'll find me on a pair of skis searching for the fluffy Utah pow at Snowbird or Alta . Skiing has taken me to some amazing places over the years and it's one of my biggest passions. But you can't ski year round (at least I can't). So I'm always ready to throw down my skis and get on the mountain bike when spring comes. Backpacking and camping anywhere from the desert to the mountains, the occasional climb, and U of U campus longboard laps are other things you may find me doing.
I’d love to answer your gear related questions. If you want to talk about any type of skiing, backpacking, skateboarding, or anything, please hit me up on Live Chat! Just request me when you chat in. I am on there Monday-Wednesday 1:30-10pm (US Mountain Time).

There are a couple Full Tilts that are made for wider feet. Check out the Booter (Item # FLT0060) and the High Five (Item # FLT0062) Both of those boots have a last width of 102mm as apposed to the 99mm last width of most Full Tilts, including the First Chair.
The High Five will have the same Intuition Pro liner that this First Chair has, however, it will be a little bit softer. Just put those items numbers in the search bar and check them out.
Hope this helps!
These are the 2013/2014 boots
110mm brake would be your best bet.
You might have to bend them a little bit, but it would be only one millimeter on each side, so that will be very easily done.
You're correct, the only difference between the surf and the adventure editions are the mounts and accessories that they come with. The camera is the same.
Spring: there is still snow in the mountains, and the valley temps are warming up enough for mountain biking, longboarding, or anything else you like to do.
But some of us have jobs, and there is only so much light in a day. But with 1200 lumens on your head, you now have the freedom to do ski, bike, skate, etc, in the middle of the night. Now you can ski pow all day, and mountain bike all night...or the other way around!

Yes it will.
All you have to do is plug your USB iphone 5 charger directly into the USB port on the solar panel. You won't need to use any of the adapters that it comes with for your iphone.
The inseam for size XS (regular) is 30 inches
XS Short inseam is 28 inches.
Yes, they will work with those bindings.
The Salomon Guardian WTR 13 is compatible with any ISO 9523 certified AT boots such as these Dalbellos.
In this skin, you'll want the 125mmx173-180cm size.
When buying skins, you want the width to be as close to the width of the fattest part of your ski. Then you just trim them down to fit the rest of the ski exactly. The trimming tool is included and it's pretty easy to do.

Too add onto what's been said. I think the Black edition is worth it.
Why? Super View! (silver edition does not have super view)
If you'll be using it for mountain biking and snowboarding, you'll be able to see more of your bike and snowboard in the shot while still having the camera mainly pointed forward. It gives a little more perspective to the video.
I have used the 3+ in both Black and Silver and definitely noticed the difference between the two.
Hope this helps your decision a lil more.
Great boots for a little sledding!
Sometimes you just need to get classy....and wear your sunglasses inside.
I'll start this by saying I own the Hero 3, and have always wondered, how much better can the 3+ really be?
I got a chance to test it out this weekend up at Snowbird and it lived up to the hype. I don't know how they do it, but GoPro just keeps making these things better.
Stand out new features:
1) Super View mode: Wider view and it doesn't look boxy or distorted. You can mount it on your helmet and still see your skis without angling it down too much.
2) Low Light mode: This is awesome. Noticeably better picture in off or changing light conditions when compared to the Hero 3.
3) Battery Life: I lent my friend Ryan my Hero 3 while I used the 3+. After our shred, he had one bar of battery left and I had two. I'll chalk that up to a 25% increase like they say.
In the video:
HERO 3 --> Ryan DeVine: Red pants and Rossi skis
HERO 3+ --> Me: Black pants and Armada skis
Both in 1080p 30fps modes
You should be able to see some differences in the two cameras.
