Pip's Bio

I was born in Garmisch, and raised between Crested Butte, Colorado and Carrbridge. My life has been one big adventure.
I was born into ski bumming. My parents, both British, lived in Germany and Switzerland ski instructing and touring. We eventually relocated to an RV in the US., traveled to every major resort in North America, and eventually settled in Crested Butte, CO.
I grew up ski racing and attended Crested Butte Academy throughout high school. However, as soon as that ski racing could of paid off, I bailed, and went to college sans scholarship, with only the pursuit of powder in mind. Salt Lake City, is quite a good place to do this. I highly recommend it.

The SuperJoe 2 has been go to additional bike rack when I'm traveling with lots of bikes or moving. It's incredibly easy to adjust the straps to fit to the back of your car and keeps your bikes for a safe and comfy ride wherever you may need them to go.

The first time I used the rack it took me about 10 minutes to get the straps adequately adjusted to me Subaru, and after that, it just gets easier to take the rack on and off. The only bummer is that opening the hatch is pretty impossible with the rack on, but I also can travel with 4 bikes and 4 friends, which definitely outweighs the negatives!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used this box in snow, rain, and wind. I've loaded it up until I thought I wouldn't be able to close it and it has never let me me down. It fits easily to round, flat, and factory bars, which has allowed me to keep it after I switched to a smaller vehicle. It not only keeps my snowy gear out of my car all winter long, but is also great storage for extra I need to stay dry during a summer rain storm.

I just bought this rack after much debate about whether I was tall enough to put my bike on top of my Subaru and I'm psyched I did! The install was incredibly easy and simple. The directions were easy to use and intuitive, and getting my bike up there is a piece of cake too. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a user friendly rack that can carry multiple wheel sizes!

Fit: True to size

I bought this shorts after a friend recommended them and they are incredibly comfy! I've been a spandex fan for awhile, primarily because most the women's baggies were either stupidly tight on my thighs (what, you think girls who mtb don't have quads?) or are so ridiculously huge they aren't even flattering. I found these shorts to be a great combination; they're soft, stretchy and comfy while still looking as attractive as a chamois will allow. Yeti for the win!

This is the first-aid kit I throw in my pack for ski touring, mt. biking or just hiking around in the summer. It has just about everything I need to cover smaller injuries and the waterproof packing can easily be reused once you need to restock or add your own items! The waterproof bags are awesome too! It kept my kit dry even when sailing through a soaking wet storm!

Fit: Runs large

I've been running and crossfitting in this shoe and have loved wearing them! They are comfy, lightweight, and give my feet adequate support for a minimalist shoe. I would, however, disagree with the previous commenter about size; I ordered my normal shoe size (7.5) and will be ordering a size 7 next time! My only problem with the shoe is it's durability, the rubber that curls around the toe box of the shoe started to pull away after only wearing the shoes around 3 times.

The Minimalist jacket has rapidly become my go-to rain jacket/wind breaker this summer. The Gore-tex paclite material means that it is insanely light (even my ounce-obsessed mum was impressed with the weight) but it's also top-notch when it comes to water resistance. I had the pleasure of putting it through the wringer during tropical rain storms sailing this past spring and it stood up to every test the ocean could throw at me!

The Ascend 2-in-1 shorts were not my first choice for running shorts, but the compression fit internal brief is a life-saver on longer runs. I love to run "longer runs" (I go for time not distance, but usually run 2-2.5 hours) but definitely do not have skinny runner legs. Inner-thigh chafing has been a constant bane on my summer running pursuits and the internal brief is definitely the answer to my problem! I usually order a small in Marmot, but went up to a medium this time. While they are a little loose, the drawstring keeps everything under control and they are incredibly comfortable.

The Trail Wind Jacket is a great, light-weight jacket to stash in your pack just in case you may need a little extra protection. I have broad shoulders and found that the Small fit me well (5" 2', 130 lbs) and that the sleeves were long enough for my arms. I always keep this jacket in my paneer bags so I have something to throw on when I'm riding my bike to and from work.

I first wore the Armageddon glove just over a year ago and was pleasantly surprised with how warm it was. I have traditionally worn mittens as I have a difficult time keeping my fingers warm, but have had no problems with cold tips since switching to these gloves! They fit well and after a few wears, the leather breaks down and the gloves have great dexterity. My only complaint is the small opening when putting the gloves on. After the gloves break in they do get easier to put on, but the first time definitely felt like a wrestling match.

I previously wore Hestra gloves in a size 7, and wear a Small in the Armageddon.

This is hands down the softest and coziest hoody I have ever owned. It is also a flattering cut and the small hits me right at the hip bones. It's turned into my favorite travel hoody. However, I would like to note that I wouldn't use this as a tech fleece, it's more of a lifestyle/casual fleece. I'd take it on a mellow camping trip or for hanging out at the lodge after a day of skiing!

I recently upgraded from a Santa Cruz Juliana to the SB66 and I could not be more excited! I originally chose a Juliana because I'm an avid xc rider and wanted a full suspension frame that would climb well. However, I wanted my new ride to have more travel without compromising climbing ability. The SB66 fits the bill perfectly and I have had nothing but fun since my bike arrived two weeks ago. It's a smooth ride that has helped me gain confidence on my technical descents and also rolls over larger roots and rocks easily when climbing. I'm 5'2" and have a size small.

My only complaint is the Avid breaks. I've found that I have to pump the back break excessively to build enough pressure to feel confident in the brakes. I have tried bleeding them and it didn't really help. I'm stoked on the SRAM components, but I will be parting out the breaks for something I feel more confident in.

This jacket is toasty warm and flattering, but perhaps a bit too much for the ski hill. The lack of ventilation makes it great for extra cold days, but it was easy to overheat in during the Wasatch's averages temperatures. The jacket is fitted and flattering, hitting just below the hips. I would save this jacket for skiing in Colorado temps, it's more of a Crested Butte in the middle of January kind of jacket than an Alta in March one!

I ordered these shorts at the same time as the Lole Bermuda 2, also for work (strength and conditioning coach). While both fit my 26" waist well (I ordered a size 2), the Mission shorts are even tighter on my thighs than the Bermuda 2. I do have large quads (apparently skiing, mtn. biking, and lifting will do that to you) and this is a common problem for me when buying clothes. They are lightweight, and could be great for hiking, but the lack of range of motion I have from the stretch across my thighs keeps them in town or on mellow walks.

I bought these shorts specifically for work, I needed a longer (almost to the knees) pair of shorts in black. The stretchy material is comfy and easy to move around in, which is key since I'm a strength and conditioning coach and need to be able to demonstrate lifts and different movements to my athletes.
I'm small in the waist (size 26") and ordered a size 2, they fit perfectly and comfortably right at my hips.
The fabric is a little bit too heavy for my liking if I was going to go hiking on a hot summer day, but they are great for short hikes/walks, especially if you wanted to throw on a pair of cute saddles and a dressier shirt post hike and head into town for some lunch. You definitely won't look like a dirt bag.
My only gripe is how tight they are on my quads. But if any ladies find any shorts out there that do fit loosely over giant quads, please let me know!

The green stripes sold me when I first came across this skirt, and as a skirt it is flatterig, cool, and and flowy. It's a great transition piece of clothing when you're going from the bike, raft, or running shoes into town and need something to throw on. I think the shirt could be incredible flattering on other's as well, but since I'm broad and bulky in the shoulders, I found that the neckline wasn't the most flattering for my figure.

Blue Steel and plenty of compliments

Everytime I step outside in the blue ice/grey combo I get compliments on these glasses. I have a small, face with a defined jaw line, but the oversized frames are flattering and fun on my face. They are perfect for hanging out in town, a game of softball, or even skinning up if I plan on skiing down in my goggles. Bottom line: They look good.

These shades fit great, stay on my face, and give me a clear perspective of what is on the trail ahead of me. I love how easily the Pivlock's arms and nose piece changes out to switch lenses so that I can see whatever the conditions may be. I would also agree with Julian Carr's statement that you don't really notice you're wearing them; they are the first pair of sunnies I haven't had to repeatedly push back onto my face when playing.
