Corey Christensen's Bio

I spend most of my time in the Wasatch mountains of Utah. Mainly mountain biking and skiing/snowboarding. Occasionally I make it back home to Colorado or down south to the desert for some canyoneering.

So I'm from Colorado and grew up riding Never Summer, Burton and Sims boards. I love the Never Summer's feel and it's been a local company for me which I like but this board disappointed me. I didn't have it too long before one of my edges split and pulled away from the board. After looking at the base near the edge it was shocking at how easily it split since there was basically no material gouged out of the base. I tried to claim a warranty but they said it wasn't faulty materials, and that it was due to hitting a hazard. Yeah, it might have been my fault but it didn't seem like it should have split as easily as it did.

That being said, it was a great board before the incident. I really like the more damp feel of the board. It doesn't feel super jittery and bouncy when pounding the chop. I just wish the customer service were a little better.

I picked this board up as my powder stick since my skier friends kept talking up their fatty sticks. I was shocked at the difference it makes. This board is incredible in the pow. All my other board have been neglected since this purchase. The float in the pow is effortless and makes the experience so much more enjoyable. Since the stance is set back 5 cm and has a tapered design from front to back, the nose rises out of the snow so easily. Probably not the best for those who demand riding switch often but you will not regret the benefits this board can offer if you are able a mountain that offers frequent powder.

Great through the trees, in the steeps, pow fields, moguls, feels a little different on the groomers but not anything you can't get used to. Can't really opine on the park since I detest waiting in lines again just to hit a kicker. Anyways why take a board that likes to play in the pow to the ice-packed park?

I bought these for a Zion National Park trip and was amazed. Before I was using a pair of board shorts but these blew my mind. They are super comfy and give excellent leg movement and range when scrambling, rappelling and climbing. They dry really quick when swimming potholes in the slot canyons. Also they are lightweight and feel thin for heat reduction but they still are really durable (Which is necessary when sliding across sandstone and things in the desert. Would definitely buy again. Maybe I'll get another pair.

So my roommate bought one of these. We were out on the trail and both of us needed to add a little air to our tires. Neither of us could get a good seal on it. It end up deflating both of our tires completely. We even tried jamming it on the valve as hard as we could thinking it just wasn't inserted all the way. We ended up having to walk it back to the care to use the car powered pump. What are we doing wrong? Its a pretty simple tool. Unless it came defective or something.

My buddies all ski and convinced me to get back into skiing so I bought some Rossi S3's. Not impressed. Then I got some P4's for the pow days. This is an incredible ski. It is so damp that you don't get thrown all over when your busting through chop. Although its a relatively wide underfoot (108mm @ 191cm length), it handles great on groomers and ice, and its been decent for me in the moguls. It really shines in the pow and chop. This skis a little short due to the Pro-Tip geometry so the 191 feels more like a 185 or so.

One of my friend uses this ski as his all-mountain ski because its capable of all types of terrain. To say the least, because of these skis I have spent more days skiing this year than snowboarding.
