Kyle's Bio

Growing up in "Beautiful British Columbia", it's hard not to get carried away with a passion for sport.

Typically any lens with a "chrome" finish to it will have the "mirrored" finish. (A reflective appearance to the exterior of the lens).

So yellow silver chrome would be a yellow lens. But when you stare at it on a sunny day, you'll see a reflection from the lens

Would have to say that the Bibby pro's are the stiffest out of those three. The Bibby's are more of a stiff, big mountain charging ski. While the JJ and Bentchetler are softer, and more focused towards playing around in deep pow.

After about two months of shredding on the 190 Bibby Pro's in Whistler, I'd have to honestly say that they are very similar to a stiffish park ski that is alot wider, and agile in deep snow. It charges in deep pow, stomps any size of cliff you huck, and holds a great edge while tracking the groomers.

A great all mountain fatty

I've been thinking of getting some new goggles for a while now. Have had the crowbars for 2 seasons now, and they are incredible. Would like to try something with a bigger lens, and larger viewing area. Thinking of the Oakley Splice goggles, the new Oakley Airbrake goggles, or the EG2's by Electric.

Has anyone had any experience with any of these?

Thanks

Another fantastic Dakine glove. Durable, waterproof, and stylish. They do have a few negatives though. In cold weather, they do not keep your hands too cozy and warm. Still on the chilly side. Would recommend a thinner "glove liner" style glove to wear underneath. Also, when the end of the season arrives and you're doing the annual gear wash, be sure to dry your gloves by a heat vent or somewhere with alot of warm circulating air. They take a few days to dry after getting thoroughly wet.

I've seen that as well. I know there is a 196cm model, that has a wider front end, and somewhat "pin-tailed" rear. The 196 is designed for big line skiing on huge Alaskan style faces. The tail is slimmer, and flatter than the ordinary bibby pro, giving more ease of slicing through fresh snow. Similar to the K2 Pontoon.

Like I say, I've seen the 196 before, but never the 186. No idea if BC will be selling these.

The Bentchets are an all mountain pow ski. However, I've talked to many people and they say that the Bentchetlers are poor on any snow that is not fresh. Its the kinda ski that is unbelievable in powder, and gets you to the lift for the next run. Its not really designed to do anything else. I would recomend a K2 "backside adventure" ski for your needs. Great directional fat skis. Excellent for powder, and designed for back country adventures with skins. They come in a variety of sizes.

Great helmet that can be worn everyday on the mountain. The vents keep your head nice and cool on warmer days, but the holt still has the option to lose it's vents; by inserting the vent plugs (included). The goggle strap at the rear is perfect for securing goggles that do not have the rubber/silicon strip on the inside of the strap. Have never had a problem with this helmet, super tough, durable.
