Jonathan's Bio

Knowing there's a new mountain to shred. A new story to be told. A new adventure to get into.

I would have to disagree with both Matthew and Taylor on this one. The mechanism that attaches both front and rear portions of the binding is designed to be unscrewed and moved to a new length location and re-screwed into place (As long as you are mounting a boot that fits within those measurements). So as long as you're not 16 with a size 8 foot and hoping to have these at 26 with a size 12 foot then you should be good with them.

I changed these over from my Line Blend 183 to my 4frnt CRJ Signature model. I had to buy the bigger brake from Marker and then bend them just slightly to get them to fit. I don't recommend these for the Hellbent's however, because of the purpose of the ski. Those should be mounted with something like the Marker Griffin, or Baron. The Hellbent's are backcountry skis, so unless you plan on hiking in you boots everywhere it wouldn't be a wise decision. Just my opinion though.

Ordered this jacket because I lost my favorite one just prior to a ski trip. It arrived and I was thoroughly impressed what the lightweight, quite material the jacket was made out of. I really dug the integrated iPod port on the inside of the jacket that allowed your cords to pass through the layers of the jacket, rather than be on the outside. The hood was the perfect size to fit over my Bern Hard Hat with ease. The color was SLAMMIN! Was super stoked about the bright green, which is highly visible. However, because I read the sizing chart wrong, I ordered a small instead of a medium. The jacket arrive and it was of course too small. By the time I went to reorder the same jacket in a bigger size, they were out of the Lime color. I bought the Moss, of which I currently have, but it's not my favorite color scheme. Colors aside, that jacket is great! Keeps you warm, functional and stylish all at the same time! A+

Words can't describe the love that i have for these gloves. I searched high and low for several years trying to find that PERFECT glove. With the OR Primo, I found it! It fits my hand the way a glove should fit; not too tight, but not too loose; not to bulky, but not too thin. The first time you put it on, you'll think it's too much insulation, but after the very first full day use, the insulation conforms to your hand and pretty much stays that way for the rest of the life of the gloves. I have two pair, one with gauntlets and one with out. They both work really well. I wouldn't trade these for anything on the market right now, and I would be severely upset if I ever lost them. Toasty fingers that don't sweat is what you're gonna get with the OR Primo Glove.

This is by far the best pack that I have every used - and I have been through a lot of packs. This pack has little compartments everywhere to help you organize your gear. It is big enough to store my BC shovel, probe, extra clothing/accessories, beacon, and a little lunch, plus a compatible camel bak.;

I also use this as my school backpack and it is rocking out like a champ. Put it through some serious abuse and it's got not a single tear or stain in the entire pack.

Great size, light weight, easily usable. MUST BUY!

These stix are the best that I've ridden in a while. They are very light and responsive. They are great for almost all parts of the mountain, piste included. They are however, a little difficult to deal with on piste because of the width of the ski. I found that they worked better in the BC, Powdery Bowls, and the Park. They had the right amount of swing weight built in, it wasn't too over powering, but it wasn't so whimpy that you didn't know it was there. The pop on them, as well as the flexion is incredible. I would suggest these to anyone. They truly are a one-ski-quiver.

Bought this so I would have yet another place to mount the camera to get different shots. It works great! Seeing as how most of the movement is done below the hips, the camera sways very little, allowing you to get a fairly shake-less shot. I recommend to anyone with a GoPro!!

Didn't really get to play with it all that much because I was fooling around with a dozen other mounting techniques, but from the few times that I did use it, the shots were amazing! Super comfortable, adjustable, and easy to use.

If you want a fixed body mount, and a picture that won't move (as opposed to when it's on your helmet) then get the GoPro Chest Mount. Money well spent!

I'm a big fan of Marker myself. I have the Griffon Schizo mounted on Line Blend 183's. If you don't weight more than 190lbs you shouldn't need anything with a higher din setting than 4-12 no matter what you're doing. I like the variability the Schizo's offer. If I'm in the park I can move the bindings up to get that centered feel and if I'm in the BC then I can swing them back to hit the tail.

The questions to ask yourself are:
1) How much do you weigh?
2) What's your ability?
3) What's your purpose? (Park, BC, All Mountain, etc.)

From there, read some forums like:

http://www.skiingforum.com

That should be plenty for you to make your decision.
