Michael G's Bio

I was born an raised in Sun Valley, Idaho where I grew up skiing, mountain biking, camping and hiking in the Sawtooth and Pioneer mountains . I love wake boarding, wake surfing, skiing, long boarding, and pretty much anything else that keeps me outside. I moved to Salt Lake City in 2007 to attend the University of Utah and to experience the endless powder that Snowbird has to offer and I have not looked back since. I have been skiing competitively since I was 10 years old, alpine ski racing for the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation until I graduated High School. Then I started competing in the Big Mountain Freeride World Tour events from 2008 - 2012. In the past year I have moved from competing in those events to start working on designing and building custom carbon-fiber skis with my friends at Kitten Factory Skis, based here in Salt Lake City, www.kittenfactoryskis.com. In my down-time I like to take my dog Roxy on the endless hikes that the greater Salt Lake City area has to offer and explore new areas with my friends.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have used this a couple times so far this year and it is a great chair to have for sitting around a campfire, at the bottom of a climbing route, or even on the ski hill. They are light and easy to bring with you where you want to go!

I have used this for quite a few weeks and it works great. Takes amazing videos and pictures and it is even voice activated if you like features like that. The battery lasts for a long time depending on if you are just taking pictures or videos. And if you get the gopro app you can transfer the footage directly to your phone.

I have had a couple pairs of Sorel boots and I love these ones. They are very durable and keep your feet super warm and dry in all kinds of conditions. They do run big and I sized down a full size from my normal shoe size. If you are looking for a great winter boot check these ones out for sure!

I have used this on a few river trips and traveling around in Costa Rica and it is great. I got a bigger version to keep all my clothes dry and the smallest version to keep my phone and spare battery chargers dry and it works great!

I have used this pack quite a few times since I have bought it. It is great for day trips and can fit everything you need in the big main compartment. The bag also can pack down pretty small if you need to say take it on a longer trip and just want a smaller bag for just day trips. The pack is also really light so it does not really add any extra weight to your trip.

I have used this headlamp quite a few times since I have owned it. It is very easy to use and has a lot of different light settings. The batteries last for a long time and you can even go into the light boost mode if you really need to brighten things up. The other three color options are great if you are around a group of people and do not want to blind them while talking. Check this one out if you are in the market for a new headlamp.

I like how this carabiner has a wider mouth so you can get around bigger objects if you need to. I have used this a lot working on truss and scaffolding and it works out really well in those aspects. Have yet to use it actually climbing yet.

I have used this a few time so far and it has worked out great. I have mainly used this as a personal anchor while climbing truss and working around scaffolding. It is the perfect length to let me hang at the right distance to get what I need done. Check it out if you are looking for a good new anchor.
