Wasatch and anywhere it's snowing...
Love these socks. I wear a size 12 shoe usually and the the large fits great! The cushioning on the shin works very nicely and... they have goats! so they look sweet. Highly recommend picking up a pair or two (or 3).
Awesome goggle! You can swap the lens while you are skiing if you really want, its that easy. I keep my spare lens on me at all times and it is so great because I can always adapt to light conditions. Super comfy. Feels great on my face. Never fogs. Buy these!
Truly my favorite helmet ever! I had my Bern Baker for 6 years and just switched to this, and man does it fit so perfect and comfortably. Its shape is great because its not totally round like a mushroom head. It has lines and shape, and the brim, which really makes it a distinguished helmet.
vents cannot close
audio liner is not good
I had the opportunity to demo these for a few laps in some fresh utah pow and really enjoyed this ski. Its far from a one ski quiver, in fact its the opposite. It specializes in "pointin em". These skis like to go straight and fast and they are great at it. They are very stiff and the full rocker rips over anything. They are 124 underfoot so they float beautifully even in the deepest stuff. If you like charging hard, fast and straight I highly recommend these for your quiver. Some downsides are that its pretty heavy which makes the swing weight less than ideal.
I was very skeptical when I first put these on. yes, they fit nice and look great but they are very lightweight, I thought "there's no way these will be warm enough". But they have primaloft and gore-tex, which is like the saying it has gold with diamonds.... So i gave them a chance. I spent all day outside in 10-15 degree storm weather lapping pow and I didnt think even for a second about my hands. They were perfectly comfortable the entire time. I highly recommend these. they are lightweight, not bulky, have awesome wrist straps, stay very dry, are warm and breathable. Awesome product Norrona!
The JJs rip everything but they especially love pow!

This coat is not fully waterproof but it does have a DWR coating which makes it very water resistant. It wont hold up in a down pour but should resist most precipitation.
I did a little Googling and found that the 09 missbehaved is 130mm wide at its fattest point. Id recommend getting the X-short 130mm and then trim to fit. The only thing that concerns me is that the x-short is designed for skis from 153-163cm. Usually there is still a little room on the back that doesn't cover the ski so I think this should give you enough wiggle room to fit your skis.
Im 6'1" a little under 200 and I prefer the FT over the ST. I've skied them both and found the FT to be sturdier and to drive fatter skis better. Besides the DIN, the FT also has a bit of a wider mounting platform for the toe piece which allows you to drive fat skis better. If you're putting them on 115s then id definitely recommend the FT.
Hope this helps!

These skin savers work great! they prevent you from have to rip the skins apart when you just go glue to glue. If you have skins and aren't using skin savers I highly recommend picking up a pair. Nick work G3
Im very similar in size to you and I've found myself happy on skis anywhere from 185cm to 195cm (id say my sweet spot is 190cm -192cm). It really depends on your skiing style and the type of skiing you plan on doing.
I presume since you're up in BC (lucky sob) that you find yourself with big open faces of powder where you can really open up the turns and rip fast. For that kind of skiing I'd recommend the 193. It will give you a longer turn radius and more stability at higher speeds. You ski 185s now so you understand how that length feels. If you like that nimbleness for trees, pillows, and tighter chutes, then go with the 186. Since you have 2 skis in that length already, might not be a bad idea to size up and expand the quiver. Based on your size you wont be overwhelmed by the length, you just have to know your own skiing style and decide from there.
Hope this helps!
These are very comfortable merino socks. They have the goat on the back which makes em even better! The soles have a nice thick cushiony bottom. Im a size 11-12 shoe usually and the L/XL fits great!
This is exactly what I've been looking for, a simple, basic, inexpensive ski vice. Didn't wanna drop a couple benjamins on the world cup vice because i just dont need to tune my skis that much. Im not racing so i just need to throw a quick coat of wax on the night before a pow day and this does the job. It works for both skis and snowboards. Takes about 30 seconds to install if you stop to take a sip of your beer... probably 20 seconds w/ out the beer. So stoked on this, highly recommend.
Yep! This comes with a chest harness.
The last width on this boot is 103mm. Thats about as wide as ski boots get. If you are looking for a boot to accommodate wide feet, this is definitely a solid choice. Enjoy!
Based on airblaster's size chart Id say the medium would be your best bet. It might be a little baggy and loose fitting since its cut for men. But in order for the length to fit you properly you'd need the medium.
The added "floaty-ness" of the new bibby does hurt its all-mountain abilities slightly. This bibby still rips the groomers, but I prefer the older design as an all-mountain fat ski,versus this bibby is now catering a little more to powder specifically. Still think this is one of the best big-mountain skis out there.
Im a big fan of the old design of the bibby as well! I had the chance to demo these last spring. These have a very similar flex pattern as the old bibby, the big difference with this bibby is that they made it fatter and more floaty.
If you like the bibby you are on but want some more float then go with this bibby.
If you like the bibby you are on and are just looking to update w/ out changes then checkout the exit world from moment, which is very similar and a great touring ski.
If you want something thats even more stiff and stable, with a flatter tail thats designed to charge even harder, id checkout the governor from moment.
Hope this helps!
