I was born and raised in New Hartford Connecticut, and moved out to Utah in 2000. Always have had a passion for the outdoors in many ways. So many different ways to enjoy it! My favorite things to do in the backcountry is snowboard and fly fish!

Glacier snacks are essential, whether the calories be burned by shoveling out the tent, or shredding laps. These meal bars are loaded with energy!
A good frying pan, for camping, is tough to find. Especially in this size. It is light enough to bring backpacking when cooking for large groups and great for things like car camping. The non-stick capabilities are no joke!
Charge your Phone, Ipod, Speaker, and Camera's so you never miss that moment. These things work amazingly well, and the price is hard to beat...
This is the perfect system to cook meals for 2 people or more while out backpacking. Super light, and super efficient. 1 canister lasted us(2 folks) 1 whole week making every meal of the day along with hot drinks. Channel your inner "Sumo"!
I've been riding these tires for 3 years now, both in winter and summer. They have proven to be long lasting as i'm still riding them today. I would buy these again for sure.
The Sumo is the perfect solution for quick hot drinks when you have a big group. The stove burns so efficiently that fuel lasts way longer then you would think!
This pack is great for anything water related. I use it mostly for fly fishing and paddle boarding. Great amount of carry space, and it packs down super small.
I always carry a set of these in my pocket while out snowboarding. You never know when you need some extra warmth, and these will slide under practically any glove.
My point of view riding the Revelator Splitboard, about 20 miles away from its birth place in Salt Lake City at Voile Manufacturing. Utah's Wasatch mountains are an incredible place for building and testing splitboards, and this new board from Voile is a perfect match for the terrain. March 2014.
Backcountry Magazine has given the 14/15 Revelator splitboard the Editors Choice Award, and for good reason! Aside from being an awesome split, it's also one of the most affordable splitboards available today. I rode the Revelator for half the season last year and it quickly became one of my favorite rides.
The Revelator has a long, stiff camber section that extends well past the bindings which makes for a very stable ride. The early rise nose and tail combined with the slight taper assures premium float in the deepest of pow. I have been a big fan of this shape for all kinds of terrain and conditions, it helps create a very versatile board that handles anything.
Using a lightweight Paulownia wood core they were able to cut the weight down by 1lb. making it one of the lighter splitboards out there. For sure the lightest ones I've been on and something I noticed the first time I took it out. The swing weight was drastically lower making kick-turns and trail-breaking a breeze and it just felt noticeably easier to walk up hill with less weight on my feet.
On the descent I had the same feelings, it's more fun to ride and easier to turn in critical spots with a lighter rig. I think the future of splitboards is all about making the weight as close to a normal snowboard setup as possible. My split rides just as good as a solid, and its now 1lb. closer to weighing the same too!
I am also excited about the new 3° canted pucks and channel system on this board. Instead of the old, standard inserts and pucks with disks that leave you a bit limited on stance options, Voile's new channel puck system eliminates any issues you may have had finding that perfect stance. The new pucks are molded into one solid chunk of stiff plastic taking the moving discs out of the picture, making them way more secure on the board. I feel like I used to get a bit of flex when railing hard on the traditional setup, but this new design feels way more stable and strong. -Next level!

These organizers are great for multiple uses. Makes for a perfect backcountry kitchen to store all of your utensils and cooking supplies. Also great for traveling to hold toothbrush and other small items that tend to get lost in a big bag.
Keep your hands warm while still being able to operate your camera. They work great as liners under a shell mitt for skiing and snowboarding.
The fabric on the Ferrosi jacket repels water and wind quite well, while remaining incredibly breathable.
Its like Magic!
