Weston D's Bio

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.

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.

Best part about this helmet or me is I never know its there. It is so damn comfortable that I forget I even have it on. It has massive vents which let me stay cool on the skin track or making turns. The BOA system is a thing of genius, even if I have a balaclava on under neath or just got a 5year haircut, this helmet always fits. Not only that it is all at the turn of a dial, with one hand. #winning
If your looking for a lightweight helmet with tons of coverage that you don't even know you have on, look no further.

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!

New ramp angle keeps rocker launch to zero. While it technically has less pivot points than the hammerhead, you still have a wide range of active positions to choose from. Built off of the platform of the popular Axl only with out the tour mode and at a much cheaper price. Awesome resort binding!

Bought this pack as our filming work horse and it has gotten beat up quick. I would agree that as a travel pack it is legit, tons of pockets, compartments and plenty of room to store all you need. However when you put shovel, probe and a pair of skin in the pack there is literally no room for extra layers, food etc. We also carry around a heavy tripod and after one season of use one of the shoulder straps is ripping out and the tripod loops are beginning to rip out (we did load the hell out of the pack, skis in Aframe, tripod, full camera gear). Fine for its price but use it is a travel bag and not heavy use.

These bindings do it all, plain and simple. They tour well, ski even better and are BURLY. They have a small ramp angle which helps eliminate rocker launch, made in the US and can also be outfitted with stiffy springs. The stiffy springs help drive larger, fatter skis and make the already active binding, that much more active. I have never broken a pair even weighing 250lbs with gear skinning and skiing on them. If your worried about the price, you shouldn't be, because they will be the last binding you buy.
