Holly's Bio

Big mountain freeskier, Holly is always in search of her next adventure. When not travelling and looking for pow, she is a ski patroller in Whistler... and does other activities such as trail running, rock climbing and yoga. She's lived in five countries and visited over 50, leading some friends to call her 'the international woman of mystery.' Adventures have taken her from Gulmarg to La Grave, Las Lenas to Denali and many other discoveries in between.

My toe pieces are loose...
Anyone have recommendations for tightening them?
I haven't popped out, but don't like the wiggle factor (my last pair loosened as well). Thinking of going with a different alpine binding next time...

I love this hoodie - wear it on ski patrol everyday. Breathes well and keeps me nice and toasty. I wore a similar Icebreaker top for over 300 days and my only complaint was the wear on the sleeves that developed (slowly the cuffs would fray) but for being a wool product and used a crazy amount, I think this is normal. I still give it two thumbs up!

This ski is super fun and holds up in all conditions... whether its pow, hard pack, groomers or sastrugi. It carves nicely and has a wide enough turning radius. I use it for ski patrol in the resort and have a pair from last year set-up as a touring ski for beyond. Hands down my favorite all-round ski.

Caution...

These shoes fit great and have awesome traction with Vibram soles but take a long time to transition to... I didn't have the patience... I used them on a steep hike up to Wedgemount Lake the third time wearing them. With only a 4mm drop from heel to toe, I over stretched my ankles and Achilles tendon. Be cautious to build up to using Minimus shoes; save you a lot of pain in the long run.

These gloves are not only waterproof but can withstand a day of ski patrolling with heavy wear n' tear. Plus I manage to keep my hands warm even though the gloves come on and off all day long.The gloves are larger then normal, I usually wear a medium but I ordered a small and they fit great.

I'm super happy with this dynafit compatible ski boot. It has superb walk mode and is easy to get on/off. Two complaints would be the cuff height (it is designed for taller males and I'm only 5'4") and the stiffness when skiing down (could be burlier). The heat moldable liners fit awesome! Haven't had a problem since I had them fitted at Surefoot and added some heal foam to keep my heal from lifting up. I haven't tried these boots yet for overnighters or week long trips but guessing won't be a problem.

I've had these pants for two weeks and skied on them about 8 days. They fit super well - are loose enough for ease of movement when ski touring and not baggy at all. No need for a belt but if I did wear one it would have to be skinny as there the pants don't have wide loops. Side zippers allow full breathing when hiking up hill. The pants are also super waterproof - a major necessity when skiing in Whistler as most days are soaking wet. My butt hasn't been this dry in a long time!
