Pip Hunt's Bio

From the mountains to the gym, I just like to move my body. You can usually find me on skis, two wheels or a combination of the two. Snacks are of paramount importance. My spirit animal is a t-rex.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was looking for a warm pair of gloves and these were recommended to me by everyone I asked, and I have not been let done. From storm days at Alta (which hover in the single digits) to -21 days in Montana, they have never failed me. I love the removable liner, that helps me regulate my temp as well as dry the gloves faster. Additionally, the leather is super durable and I know I will have these gloves for years to come. If you have worn Hestras before, I recommend sizing down one size for the Heli Pro!!

I bought these to wear with my fish scale, metal edged XC skis for touring and exploring on ungroomed trails. The boot provides good stability for any downhill that needs negotiating and are warm and snug even in cold under 10F temps. The zip gator is well thought out to keep fresh snow out of the boot when breaking trail. I would recommend these boots and find they are true to size.

I bought this for my mum for Christmas. She is an aggressive advanced skier, but loves to make beautiful turns and doesn't want to have to drive the ski too hard. This is what she said:
LOVED this ski, so much fun both in bounds and out. I was very surprised given the width underfoot at how well this ski performed in crud, on groomers and in moguls. It skied all soft snow conditions well being super playful and easy to maneuver. The Sheeva 11 of course excels in deep powder snow and I’d highly recommend it as a one quiver powder ski for resort and side country skiing.

We got this thinking our short haired border collie might get cold, I think we were wrong, BUT this has been a great addition to our fall and spring camping adventures, as it gives her an extra layer in the tent. She gets too hot if we have her running around in it, which testifies to it's warmth!

The Shift binding definitely helps solve the problem of the one quiver binding. Like any one quiver item, it isn't exceptional anywhere, BUT it is the best option on the market! I've been using my Atomic Backlands with the Shift as a one ski quiver this season and so far they have been great.
Some trade offs -
While I wouldn't want to do any long, spring days on this binding due to weight, I do LOVE they way they ski down when I'm in the backcountry.
When I'm riding lifts, I have noticed a little play between the toe piece and my boot when I hit chunder, however, I have never come out of the binding.

Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 2"
Weight: 130 lbs

I got this as a gift for my mom and she reports back that she loves the fit and the warmth. As a puffy jacket snob, she loves the length and that the shape of the collar and hood give it a more dressy feel than a standard down jacket. ADditioanlly, she does have broad shoulders for her height, so we sized up and it fit perfectly.

The Corvus Freebird is the lighter weight version of the Corvus. It differs from the Corvus in that it has camber under foot as well as a lighter weight core. I mounted it with the Vipec binding and love it for full day tours as well as dawn patrols. It is a great option for soft snow and light enough for the biggest days. Much like many light weight skis though, it is not my favorite on bullet proof slopes. If that is in your forecast, opt for the regular Corvus. It is an amazing touring option and I highly recommend it for that purpose.
