Gordon Jarvis's Bio

I've never really like pavement, I'm drawn to nature for its pure power, beauty, and it's amazing rides.

these bindings are on my Salomon Sentinels. I use them as all mountian bindings. Because of the 6 cm of travel they add a lot to the versatility of any ski. I've cranked them back in the powder to ride the tails and they work beautifully. I usually keep them a half centimeter behind boot sole center so i get that slight weight on the tails to keep the speed up. Bottom line there a durable, versatile, great looking, slightly heavy binding. And they come with a little adjusting key that sucks i striped it on the first day but any old screwdriver will fit really well.

Definitely a stiff and strong ski. The two layers of titanium make it durable enough to do anything you want. I got a pair a few weeks ago and took them to Killington VT to break them in. I have 170s which are 93 underfoot, they still loved the hard pack and the groomed. Some runs where that classic east coast early season ice and moguls but the sentinels hold an amazing line through shear ice and are light enough to hop into the next turn. Im not a park skier but i got in some ice, tree runs, and groomed. My favorite part is most definitely the side wall construction. It allows you to be super aggressive and they just fly through every turn. Bottom line these skis will do great on anything accessible by a chairlift, for backcountry touring there a little narow.
