when there's snow on the ground, I ski. when there's no snow on the ground, I ride my mountain bikes. good friends, music, and beer keep me stoked year-round. simple.
Hard to beat this thing... waterproof, shockproof, bombproof. Mounts anywhere. Footage looks great, and it's MUCH easier to use than the previous generation (the new user interface is a huge improvement). And it even takes 11 megapixel still photos. I take mine everywhere and absolutely love it.
Great gloves. I've had 2 pairs and they're perfect for spring days, but I also use them with wool glove liners on colder days. Durable, stylish, keep my hands dry, and they never make my hands overheat. Love 'em.
Got a pair of these last February and they are simply spectacular. They carve, slash, slarve, pop, float, bust crud, pretty much whatever you want 'em to do. Very stable, very fun, and they were even a blast when I found myself at Mammoth in late April with 12" of fresh and no powder skis. This ski really defines "all-mountain."
I've had mine for over 4 years and it's still working like new. Fits any bike, super stable, very durable, idiot-proof. What more can you ask for? It's bike rack perfection.
Bomb-proof, solid, simple. Best bindings I've ever owned. Yeah they're expensive, but they'll probably last until I'm 70, so it's all good. These are the bindings you buy if you don't want to worry about your bindings ever again. Very consistent release too - I've never pre-released from these, and yet they always let go when I need them to. Not that I ever crash though...
very simple design, bordering on minimalistic. only the front pockets zip closed; the back pockets and cargo pockets use velcro. nice, roomy fit. no bells and whistles on these, just solid construction from a reputable name in outerwear.
I too am looking for more opinions on the mounting point. Got a pair of Czars coming in the mail tomorrow and will be using them as an everyday ski at Snowbird (not for deep pow days though; I have another pair of sticks for that). Above anything else, I need them to be able to ski tracked out crud. Will the forward mounting point help or hinder their performance in choppy snow?
