Thomas G.'s Bio

I'm a former ski racer and current backcountry skier who is training to be a Heli Guide in Haines, Alaska and to be a nurse at the University of British Columbia. In the summer I'm both a guide on one of Southeast Alaska's many Glaciers and a mountain biking guide on its many trails, all in all the outdoors make me tick.

I'm interested in getting these with an intuition liner. I have a medium wide foot but growing up racing I like a little lower volume (lange rx 130 lv is great). I'm torn between putting the normal power wrap or the high volume power wrap in them because its tough to know the last throughout the boot. Advice with the liners?

I'm moving to Japan to guide but have a pair of super fats for deep days. I'm looking for a pair for not so deep days and days on the ski out slopes of Whistler that will demolish crud while holding an edge on hardpack and still be playful in the trees. Is this it? How does this stack against the Hoji?

I'm being trained as a Heliskiing guide in AK next season and I thought I'd pick up some more specific powder skis and was looking into: the K2 hellbents, pontoons, the 4frnt EHPs, and these. Does anyone know which are better and why? I know skis very well but I've never riden a reverse cambered or rockered ski before and am struggling with the similarities.

going up one size is mandatory unless you're going to wear the vest only over a shirt, fits snuggly and whatever is underneath needs to as well. The radio pocket is only little walkie talkie sized and no good for icom, VHF or any surface to air radios that are useful outside the resort. Kind of a novelty piece

This is the most bommer and most comfortable helmet for all things skiing. I'm used to the protection of a ski racing helmet and this is a much more comfortable option that offers comparable safety and won't get you laughed off of big mountain summits. Has easy vents that are great for hiking and warm days alike, while closing them keeps out the Alaskan rain and bitter cold that I deal with every day, in a way that hats and other helmets could only pretend to do.

P.S. Unlike some other Giro helmets the brim on this looks extremely dumb on snowboarders, sorry.
