Chris's Bio

I am from Aspen, Colorado, born and raised. I started tele skiing about 8 or 9 years ago, and haven't locked down the training heels yet.

Telemark skiing has become a lifestyle for me and every winter is dedicated to skiing with friends and enjoying the true beauty of the mountains. I find telemark skiing a form of leisure, spirituality, intensity and beauty. All of which blend into a natural mountain rhythm between mind, body and soul.

First roller bag purchase. With my wife pregnant she decided it was time to give up the back pack for a bit. This is a perfect size for short trips and big enough for a woman to fit all those little bits and bobs in that they seem to bring everywhere ( "how many pairs of shoes are you bringing"). She loves it. The outside pockets are also spacious, the design and pattern gives the bag some pizazz inside and out. We'll get lots of use out of this great bag! Definitely seems adequete to roll right on to carry on for flights

This sleeping bag is great for car camping or for use in a camper. It is really big, so don't think about trying to trek too far with it. It is large enough to fit a couple and even a small child. The zippers on both sides make it easy to control tempertures if it is too warm or cold.

Fit: True to size

I recently picked this up for my wife and she can't get enough of it. It instantly became her favorite jacket. For what it's worth, it's actually much better looking in person...the pictures don't do it justice. She get's cold easy and says it keeps her super warm and provides great mobility when hiking around in the mountains. She's a small and it fits her true to size.

Fit: True to size

I use merino wool base layers for most of my outdoor activities. I live in the mountains of Colorado and the level of warmth and comfort that merino brings me has won me over as my material of choice. I layer up with a merino base when skiing in the winter season and often hike and climb with just a single merino layer in the summer. Icebreaker products have always proved to be well built and durable for all the abuse I give them. This hoodie is no exception, another awesome product.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Dropping a few nut tools from time to time is pretty frustrating , not to mention dangerous. As soon as saw the Wild Country nut tool I knew it would be a must-have. The leash gives me the assurance I need that I'm gonna have this piece from bottom to top of whatever climb I'm working on. Great piece of gear.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The durability and handling of sterling ropes really won me over. I have a hard time considering buying other brands of rope after experiencing some excessive wear in the first season of use with other brands. I like my ropes with dry treatment because I spend a lot of time climbing in the desert, but my main climbing partner uses a non-dry treated sterling rope and after a season rife with the heaviest use imaginable (5 days/ week), the rope is still in amazing shape.

I love having a lightweight tag line for climbing multi-pitch routes! I've been using it on desert towers in Colorado National Monument and in the Moab area. It's easy to see how much time and energy a small lightweight rope save you on the decent when putting up long routes.

I've been using my GriGri 1 for years now and it's proven itself to be an valuable addition to my climbing setup. I just retired my old GriGri and picked up the GriGri 2 - which is a huge improvement over the original. Smaller, lighter, more ergonomic, and it handles rope better. Love It!

I have been skiing on the Scarpa T-race for some time now and this boot has met all my standards. This years has a walk mode, which is nice for certain situations,but for me I prefer putting the lock mode in. This boot is not as stiff as the white and red edition, but still boasts great flex and stiffness for the hard charging tele skier!
