Well I must say its been a whirlwind of a season so far here for Storm Day. We had some great events, from consumer demos, hut trips and finally some great pow the first two weeks of March. I finally finished the Cochise 130 review and I think you’ll like it. This is the one new product this season that has been the real highlight for me personally. Still can’t believe one boot does everything this thing does. Light, Stiff, Comfortable and tours with Dynafits…Skis have been off the hook too, the Gunsmoke people are really digging as a more playful option for a resort powder ski. The past two storm cycles though the Bodacious were out in full force on a lot of rippers feet, proving its still the boss of the Blizzard line up.
Soul Poles and Lazer have been big hits too. We’re gonna see a lot of them out on the hill next year as the support from retailers has been great.
We had a trip with about 12 of our friends out the gates of Sugarbowl and toured about 10 miles in the Tahoe backcountry, getting up and skiing down Anderson Peak (8681 ft) to the Lost Trail Lodge where we had a great feed and a few laughs with the bros. Definitely one of the best trips I had in a while.
We got to shred a little with TecBlizz team rider Marcus Caston during the Rahlves Banzai Tour event at Squaw. Marcus is a great kid from Salt Lake City and one of the best skiers I’ve ever seen. American Dave Rosenbarger made the trek over from Chamonix and spent a couple days skiing at Squaw it was great to ski with him. There is a great pic of him he sent when he skied Terminal Cancer in the Ruby’s. We had some great demos with Village Ski Loft, Willard’s Sport Shop and Bobos. This past weekend was absolute mayhem with the Pain McShlonkey Classic at Squaw all weekend, the costumes were hilarious and the buzzes were even bigger. Thanks Shane!! Well here are some pics of the past few weeks. The forecast for snow is looking good and and we’re just about wrapped up for business so its time to ski!
