JB's Bio

I'm a NYC transplant who just couldn't leave Boulder after college. There's just too much to do -- ski, bike, run, tennis, softball, ultimate, cyclocross, longboarding... and I love to do it all with my family and friends. I'm on volunteer ski patrol at Winter Park/Mary Jane and have just added kiteboarding and surfing to my new sport short list.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I can't say enough about how great this jacket is. With just 60 grams of insulation, I bought it strictly as extra warmth for skiing in cold temps but I wear it almost daily. It's perfect as a mid layer or outer layer depending on the temp. I've had it for 2 seasons now, stuffed it in my pack countless times and it's held up through everything. The nano puff is a must have.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Fun, responsive, floaty, lightweight, quick and stable in the bumps, powder, on groomers, in crud. You name it, this ski can handle it. I bought these blindly, mounted them tele (NTN) and skied them for the first time in an unexpected 10" of powder. A few days later I skied them again after stuff was tracked out. Another stellar performance; I'm still smiling and can't wait to ski them again. Rossi really nailed it with the design and construction on this one.

So if the $399 price includes the binding itself and cartridges and brakes, can you specify brake width in addition to cartridge type? I'm leaning toward the green cartridge but a friend said I should also consider the white. I'm a 5'6" chick on volunteer ski patrol in CO and a strong all-mountain skier. Any recommendations? Also, if I get another binding heel plate, how easy is it to switch the binding from ski to ski?

It's about time a manufacturer designed a boy short that doesn't ride up during activity or at rest, regardless of the size of your booty. Stoic nailed it with comfortable, breathable fabric and a snug but not too tight fit. I've done just about every sport in these and keep washing them almost daily because I want to wear them again and again. No other boy short I have comes close. Next time, I'm ordering a dozen.

Trying to decide between the Geisha, the Rossi BC Pro 110 and the Volkl Kiku. I know they're all different waist widths but all claim to be a great all mountain ski with focus on powder. I'm on volunteer patrol at Winter Park, CO, and need a ski primarily for powder (50%), bumps (30%), and groomers (20%) but I want at least a 95 width at the waist. Anyone got an opinion or recommendation?

Quite possibly the warmest and lightest down jacket I've ever owned. I've worn it on its own around town and under a softshell while skiing in negative temps and have not been disappointed. It stuffs up small so you can take it anywhere. Plus, it's got some water resistant properties and won't get soggy if you happen to get caught under wet flakes. I'd only change one super minor element of the design by replacing the elastic sleeve ends with adjustable velcro to accommodate larger glove cuffs.

I demoed the 08/09 Kiku that had a pair of G3 Roxy bindings on it. I had a blast on the ski but the G3 bindings were way too flimsy for this ski. The Kiku would rock with a pair of BD 02 or 01 bindings on it.

I demoed these fat skis (mounted tele) in 6-8" of fresh powder and they were fantastic. Effortless float yet quick turning in the trees and bumps for such a fattie. The only type of terrain I didn't get to ski was wide open bowls but I am convinced they are a sweet ride all over the mountain.
