Weston grew up in NY but always knew he wanted to live out West. After moving to Park City he quickly got involved in the local Telemark scene and started filming and going on photo shoots. Today he spends most of his time exploring new lines on his snowmobile around Utah, and playing any where he can.

THE NTN boot
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have long been a die hard fan of the 75mm but advancements in bindings have made me reconsider. This boot...its the one. It is stiff but comfortable and can handle anything you throw at it. Hiking/scrambling in this boot is much easier than the t-race since it does not have the duckbill. The walk mode, while not a lot of range of motion, is bomber and has never failed on me. The power strap is a huge upgrade from the models of the past. Easy to grab with gloves on and it is much stiffer and really locks the boot in. The buckles are also a nice upgrade, lighter and stronger all at the same time. Haven't broken one and I am in and out of rocks frequently.

I have a fat foot, especially in my toes. The laces on these shoes go way further down and allow you to open up the shoe and really dial in your fit. The heel pocket keeps my foot locked in but the laces allow my feet to actually survive a big day hiking. I also have really hot feet and these shoes are extremely breathable. The sole isn't overly thick but does still give great sensitivity.

Seriously tough

First these things take serious abuse. I am out on my snowmobile a lot and between riding and digging most things take a lot of abuse. These don't even flinch. Even after heavy use they have zero tears in the material- can't say that about any other pants I have ever had. Second; I used to be total convert of bibs. That is until I met these pants. The cross ventilation really, and I mean really works. When skinning these things open up and give me a few different levels of how much venting I need. I used to be gaga for bibs because they never bound up and gave me unrestricted stride when skinning. The chemical pants do the same- they stretch! I also really like a back pocket zipper for my wallet- why I keep my wallet on me in the backcountry I have no idea, but its nice to have the option. These pants are the best of both worlds, tough as nails yet totally unrestricted touring movement.

A perfect blend

Love this coat, highly breathable and stretchy yet still totally waterproof. Big mouth zippers on the side pockets are awesome and can store a ton of crap in the pockets. The pit zips are critical for when skinning and vent awesome. The skin pockets on the inside of the coat come in handy for storing gloves, hats, goggles etc. This coat is an all time favorite of mine. Great cut, fit (I like my stuff on the larger side).

Sure its a great saw for digging pits, but it really shines for me when out snowmobiling. This thing RIPS thru wood. Saplings, dead wood, etc. To have un epics, I always carry this sledding to get out of unforseen circumstances. Others said this was a flimsy, I respectfully disagree. It's sharpness yields defined columns and the measurements on the blade help make quick work of columns. Handle, while heavier than others, is super ergonomic, comes in handy when cutting a ton and is MUCH warmer than others. Sheath is finicky but I have used it for years and never had a problem with it. The saw fits easily

My favorite gear is the stuff I don't have to think about. These poles are just that. I beat the daylights out of these things, rolling the sled with them on, whacking ice off repeaters, scraping my top sheets etc. etc. These things are durable! Big fat pole baskets, an unobtrusive scraper and a fail proof flick lock. They are light, not the lightest but you can count on them to get you out and back. To sum it up: DEPENDABLE

Backcountry Perfection in a shovel
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Had this shovel for years and it has performed flawlessly. Love that it is so compact and fits in any pack. Even though it is small, it is BURLY. I have dug out my sled and others so many times with this thing, serious snow mover. As a snow nerd, the absolute best part of this shovel is the blade. With a bit of practice, you get amazingly clean pit walls. I can trust this shovel and know that any time I pull it out, I can 100% rely on it.

Well balanced, well behaved and charges! Skied this in some of the worst snow possible; rotten, crusty, rocky etc. The huge tips keep the V8 on top and let you concentrate on having fun vs. worrying about what your skis going to do. As soon as it is in the soft snow the ski really starts to shine. Nimble, stable and FUN. The cap construction keeps the ski really light and reduces top sheet chipping. The bases are very durable as well. I have totally dry reefed these skis and was shocked at how little damage was done to them. I live out west and this is my do it all, quiver of all ski.

New favorite. Stuffs small when jammed in a pack and touring but still won't let any wind in when going 60mph on a sled. This coat is simply awesome. The little bit of stretch in the fabric means you are never fighting the coat, major bonus. Highly breathable; on windy days I will tour in this and my base layer . Open up the pockets which double as vents and it will cool you right down if need be. Really solid, do it all coat that is ridiculously light weight.

Literally the only work pants I own. The gusseted crotch and fit of these is amazing. I am a skier, I have a big thighs and most pants just do not fit me. These do. Super tough. Tough zipper, tough pockets (thigh pocket fits a pruning shears perfectly) and tough closure system. I can actually climb in these pants. I have had 6 or so pairs of these pants and have worn out a few but only after heavy, heavy abuse. Get these, you wont regret it.

Best Shoe Ever

Love this shoe! The canvas makes it conform to your foot yet gives you tons of support. The sole is a tad softer than some of their other shoes- makes it better for scrambling and gives tremendous foot feel. Took these hiking and with all the rock hopping we had to do these totally excelled. They also got wet and dried relatively quickly. The full rubber wrap around the toe box and beyond really made this shoe durable.

The best gear is the gear you never have to think or worry about. I never have to worry if my Magic Carpets will be up to the task. The glue is borderline cement (easily remedied by a strip of packing tape), the glide is fantastic and the grip on the way up is second to none. I do however use an STS tail clip verses the stock tail clip as I think it is more versatile and the skins can fit multiple length skis. These skins have never failed me even after years of use and abuse.

This pack is mack daddy of all airbags! No longer do you have to compromise what you bring out on a day due to lack of space. The enormous 42L pack easily fits extra layer, water, harness, crampons, axe, rope, helmet and goggles with room to spare. As a guide being able to fit extra first aid equipment, layers, water etc in a pack is essential- and this pack delivers. The ski carry system is amazing, A-frame or diagonal (can even fit two pairs of skis on the pack when boot packing). I always carry a helmet for when I am descending or the ascent gets gnarly but never skin with it on, the Float's helmet carry is one of my favorite feature and gets used all the time. This pack makes life easier and gives me a piece of mind having the airbag. Highly functional and essential piece of gear.

These goggles are simply the best. They look awesome and they preform even better. The 5x anti fogging coating never lets me down, even when I am out hiking or doing a quick skin lap. The foam on the face is like your favorite baby blanket and absorbs sweat like a towel. Two lenses is like getting two goggles for the price of one! I am never caught off guard when the clouds come in or when the sun comes out. Having a clip in the back allows me to put these on easily over my helmet/hat, super nice feature that I can't live without. The outriggers on the IO/7 makes the google compatible with just about any head piece you can find. It relieves pressure points and allows the goggle to be in full contact with your face at all times. Want reliability and a goggle that wont let you down? Look no further.

These shades are stylie and strong. They survive throwing them in the pack when you put your goggles on and are perfect for a night on the town. When you only want to grab one pair of shades for a big trip these are the ticket!
