Adam 's Bio

Waking up to a fresh snow and a blue bird day, see that once a month now that I am on the east coast, but I make the best of it.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I just picked a set of these up, I am expecting great things from them. I am going to be mounting up the original jester on it.

I am expecting it to ski alot like a chopstick, but I believe it will smear turns a lot more than grip them... We will see. I will update later this season

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my everyday ski! Been using it for 50+ days. I have the Jester pro on it.

I can carve GS turns on it in easter blue ice or drop cliffs in 26" of fresh powder out in Vail pass. Takes every thing I have thrown at it.

I however do put a 2degree base and 3 degree side bevel when I am skiing back east. I will for sure be skiing this again all winter.

This replaced my Chopstick as my everday ski. It is faster and more stable but can still handle the deep stuff.

Fit: True to size

This is the best jacket I have ever owned, I actually have two of them. I wear them from December to March. It keeps me dry and warm in both rain and snow. Ice and sleet, I have been in -20 windchill and was perfectly comfortable.

The only problem I have with the jacket is the lining, You can't really where the jacket without a long sleeve shirt on, because it gets stuck to you skin when you sweat a little.

I have these in the 183 with a FKS 18 on it and they are my second favorite ski for the east. The first would be a carving ski which isn't the same category. These are stiff enough carve up an icy halfpipe wall, carve like a maniac on your way down a blue ice slope, but still playful enough you can pop off anything and land squarely with out issue.

I have two sets of these. One on my 185 Chopstick the other on my 186 Gotama. I have a set of the Pro's to go on my Shiro just haven't mounted them up yet. Only other binding I would ever use is the FKS which is on my skinny ski's. The extra with of the jester combined with the high dins make this a great binding for wider skis because it transfers energy so well! Been riding the same bindings since 2007 when they originally came out and have absolutely no complaints.

I bought this to leave in the truck with all my gear. It is a little smaller than Id like but the 90L is to big. I can find an extra layer top and bottom, boots size 26.0 Lange RC130's, my Arcteryx micon pant and jacket which have a little loft. deoderant, two sets of goggles, hestra vertical cut freerides and spring gloves. Squeezing in my stash kit, two extra sets of socks and I'm ready to go!

I have had three pair of these since they first came out in 2006. They last about 3 years before you start putting your fingers through the ends. I probably skied a total of 150 days on these gloves and used them every day to and from work. Great thin glove for doing everything!

I bought two of these shirts for wearing around the house, running errands and even wearing up to the mountains under my jacket. They however are paper thing and not what I was expecting at all. They seem comfy but aren't a shirt to wear out and about in the Pittsburgh winters. Still on the hunt for a heavy weight flannel to wear outside as a flannel!

Best ski I have ever owned hands down I am trying to find a replacement for my prototype 185's but can't find anything. I have even been talking to folsum on having a set made for but it will run me around 2grand. Maybe I should just wait and order a new pair for next season.

I have the 185 and last years 175, wish I would have bought 185's last year because the 175 is just to damn small. Im 5'8 185 26.0 boot. I ran jesters, and dukes on them and much prefer jesters.
