Justin Barrell's Bio

I grew up in Vermont and New Hampshire and moved to Utah to ski "da deep powdah."

I have skied everywhere in the east coast but my favorite resorts there are Stowe, Jay Peak and of course Whaleback. I am a big fan of reverse camber skis (because camber hates freedom). The reason I am such a fan is best summed when I once heard someone describe the transition as being like switching from a rigid mountain bike to a full suspension. Its just a smoother ride.

I usually can be found lounging on the tram dock at Snowbird. Once in a while I ride the tram and ski back down. But it is not that much fun and I definitely wouldn't recommend it.

Other than skiing I also enjoy rock climbing, mountain biking, camping and going to see live music.

For years Sorel has been know as the brand to trust when it comes to warm, winter footwear. I just checked The Sorel Northern Lite Tall Boot for a customer and it is no different. The boot keeps feet warm with 200 grams of Thinsulate lining. It is fully seam sealed and waterproof. A lot of women want to know how high up on the leg these boots stand so I measured the height from the back of the heel to the top of the fur and it was just over 9 inches on all sizes. Sorel puts a temperature rating on all their boots and the Northern Lite is rated at -25 degrees Fahrenheit (-32 degrees Celsius). Sorel does put out a disclaimer that this rating is based on an average person's comfort level while being "active." Who spends much time outside when it is -25 anyways? Regardless I think most ladies will find this boot to be very warm and very fashionable anywhere from Sundance to Vail.
