Travel Luggage

12/10/2015

When traveling for a ski trip, stressing over awkward luggage and new airport regulations is extra baggage you just don't need! If you're planning to fly with your equipment, it's important to make sure your skis are safe and secure so you can have a worry-free trip. We nailed down our tried and true ways to keep your equipment protected in transit. 

 

 

BOOT BAGS bootbags


Travel Tip: Always carry on your boots.

We recommend always taking your boots along on your trip for comfort factor. Packing a boot-specific bag as your carry-on helps separate items, making it easier to go through security. The Thule Roundtrip Boot Bag or Transpack TRV Pro (or Edge Junior for kids) are both designed as backpacks, making it comfortable to take anywhere.


HARD CASES

Travel tip: Hard cases are the best option for shipping skis.

The Hard Case Shuttle from Transpack is a hard-sided, rolling case that gives your equipment the best possible protection. Interior straps hold your gear in place, and the case is adjustable so when you're not using it, it shrinks down to a smaller size for easy storage.  This is the best option for shipping your skis to your destination-you can slap a shipping label right on the case and send it out as is! 


PADDED CASES

Travel Tip: Padded cases are the most versatile option.

While hard cases are said to be the safest option when checking your skis on a plane, padded cases like the Kulkea Katanja offer much more versatility. With a full-length zipper and straps that hold your skis and poles against the padded sides, there is plenty of room to pack in your ski clothes and other gear, which also offers additional padding.

The RoundTrip Double Snowboard Roller from Thule is specifically made to hold snowboards! Compression straps hold your board in place, and there is plenty of additional room to fit your boots in as well.

NON-PADDED soft

Travel Tip: For protecting your skis on bus trips, opt for a non-padded case.

For those junior skiers who take lots of trips via bus, pick up a Transpack Alpine Junior Ski Bag. These bags are a great way to protect your skis from getting scratched when they're packed on a bus with other peoples' equipment.

Top Picks for Snowsports

10/27/2015

 

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 season.

 

Here is a quick overview of what's new for the 2015/2016 season!

 

skis 

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 choice.

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 comfortable. 

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.

 

boards

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.

 

marhar 

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!

Staff Ski Day at Mohawk Mountain

03/12/2015

On March 11th, we closed the store and headed up to the mountain for a staff ski day! This was the first time in the store's history that we closed for reasons other than weather, and it was such an amazing opportunity to all be able to hit the slopes together! We had a delicious barbeque lunch on the deck, and several of our brand representatives came to hang out and let us test the new equipment. The conditions could not have been better; with temperatures reaching nearly 60 degrees we were able to ski in our sweatshirts and never had to worry about going inside to warm up. The snow was nice and soft, and many of us were able to make the first tracks of the day! This has been an excellent winter for snow sports, and there was no better way to say goodbye to winter than with a ski day like this.
