This season's new stock of skis and snowboards are sure to have
you pining for those first snowflakes to fall! We've brought back
old favorites while adding new brands to our wall that push the
boundaries of ski technology. Our ski department is brimming with
new equipment that will get your family equipped for an amazing ski
Here is a quick overview of what's new for the 2015/2016
1. Marker Kingpin
The Kingpin is an alpine touring binding that offers the
reliability of a traditional binding. The Kingpin gets its name
from the pins that are used to hold the toe in place. Rather than a
complete pin system, however, Marker also incorporates its tried
and true heel technology. This binding offers a combination of a
lightweight pin-based toe and a secure heel to give you the best of
both worlds for downhill and climbing.
2. Head Skis
After testing out Head skis at our demo days last
February, we decided to bring this brand back into our ski
department. Head has added new technology by incorporating a
revolutionary material called graphene, making their skis
incredibly strong, light, and thin.
3. Blizzard Zero G
We couldn't believe it when we first picked up Blizzard's
new Zero G skis; they are unimaginably light! The Zero G integrates
a carbon fiber frame with an ultra-light wood core to offer a high
level of performance with a shockingly low volume. They can be used
just as easily for alpine touring as for alpine skiing.
4. POC Skull Orbic X
POC has zeroed in on reducing the force transmitted to
the brain in case of a crash, ensuring that you stay safe on the
slopes no matter how hard you ride. Whether or not you are a racer,
you'll be psyched to learn that the POC Skull Orbic X now meets the
new FIS safety standards, making it an exceptionally safe, sturdy
5. Volkl RTM UVO
The RTM UVO ski includes a tip-mounted technology that
not only reduces vibration but also gives you added agility to
improve control over your skis. This system ski comes already
equipped with bindings, which have also been re-designed to be even
wider and have a more secure connection to the ski.
6. Salomon Quest Access Custom Heat
Staying warm is one of the most difficult parts of
skiing, and Salomon has come out with a new boot to revolutionize
the way we keep our feet warm and comfortable on the mountain. The
Quest Access Custom Heat has a rechargeable heated liner that you
can control with three different temperature settings. The heated
panels are carefully placed on the top of your foot so that the
heat will radiate downwards, which will help keep your soles
7. Stockli GS Team
For young racers, the GS Team ski from Stockli is a
must-have. These junior carving skis are ideal for advanced-level
skiers who are eager to get into racing! It has a wood core and
vertically laminated sidewalls for torsional rigidity, providing
superior edge hold.
8. Tecnica Mach1 120
This boot is an excellent choice for advanced to expert skiers who
want a great fit and an unbeatable ride. Fit and performance are
combined through customizable features. Everything about the boot
is customizable, from the liner to the shell, yet the boot
maintains a stiff flex to offer better control.
1. Never Summer West
Never Summer has come out with a new snowboard this year
for men. The West board is made with rocker and camber to give you
a better edge hold on hard snow and more stability at high speeds.
Our favorite thing about Never Summer boards is they are made right
here in the US, in Denver, Colorado!
2. Burton Genesis
The Genesis from Burton is a high-tech binding with a kickback
hammock on the highback that will support the back of your leg
without digging into your calf. The reflex full bed cushioning
system will allow the board to flex more under the rider while
making the overall ride a lot more comfortable.
3. Burton Highline Boa
For entry level to intermediate riders, we recommend the Highline
Boa from Burton. This boot comes with a very light outsole and a
memory foam liner to add comfort to your ride. The softer flex
makes it a great choice for those who are new to the sport.
4. Thirty Two
We are excited to introduce a new brand of snowboard boots for our
store, Thirty Two! Thirty Two has been producing new innovations in
technology, performance and comfort since their start in 1995. We
carry several boots from ThirtyTwo, and one of our favorites is the
Binary Boa. It comes in men's and women's, and has a Heat Moldable
Intuition Liner and advanced dual boa technology, giving you a
perfectly customized fit.
5. Union Flite Pro
The Flite Pro from Union is an excellent beginner binding; not
only is it affordable, but it has softer flex to accommodate
beginner riders while still remaining stiff enough to work great
for advanced riders. At 730 grams, it is one of the lightest
bindings we sell.
6. Burton Barracuda
Burton is one of our most popular snowboard brands, and we highly
recommend their new Barracuda board for men. It is a combination of
two retired Burton models, the Malolo and the Supermodel! The best
elements from both boards are used in the Barracuda; it retains a
wider tip to allow it to float over powder, and camber for
increased edgehold on the hardpack.
7. Marhar Snowboards
We have picked up an all-new brand of snowboards this year, Marhar!
Marhar boards are American-made, crafted in Michigan where the
original idea of snowboarding was born (the Snurfer was invented in
Muskegon, MI). Marhar does everything from engineering their own
wood cores to designing the graphics. We continue to support
companies that manufacture products here in the USA!
