Curious about what gear the pros are using? We’ll be running a series of posts highlighting Skiershop.com athletes and the gear that they choose to ski on. With so many brands and so many types of skis coming through our doors, it’s extremely interesting to see who chooses what and why.
First up is Noah Ranallo, big mountain skier extraordinaire (at least we’re confident he will be someday). Noah has been making his mark on the Ski the East Freeride Tour for the past few years, bagging multiple podiums and regularly taking the Cliff Huckstable Big Air Award, given to the skier who goes the biggest.
We took notice and put Noah on our team immediately. With multiple team members on the Freeride World Tour we knew Noah would be a perfect fit and would put him in an environment that would allow him to continue building his career as a freeride skier. Faction Skis followed suit, grabbing Noah and putting skis on his feet before someone else could. Check out Noah’s gear in the photo below, and keep an eye out for him charging down a steep slope near you!
Skiershop employees Sam Davies and Jeff Neagle headed down to Killington Resort for their first day on snow! Killington was nice enough to set up some terrain park features, and although Jeff is getting a little long in the tooth for your typical ‘park rat’, we motivated him enough to get a few shots. Enjoy!
A few months ago Saga Outerwear reached out to the members of Newschoolers asking what they would like to see in their upcoming phone application. Responses ranged from the extremely well thought out to the extremely silly, as per typical NS members. Apparently Saga received the feedback they were looking for because after months of patiently waiting, we finally have our app! Check out the video and press release straight from Saga:
ORDER UP: Saga Outerwear And Canvas Cook Up Interactive Fast Food App
(Salt Lake City, UT)- Local Outerwear company, Saga Outerwear, proves to be ahead of the curve with the new release of their very own Fast Food App. Saga Outerwear teamed up with Canvas Creative Studio to produce an interactive application for Iphone and Android users, complete with Mix ‘N Match, Video Feed and Stockists. The App will be released on October 29th 2013. The anticipation of the release has already sparked a big response from the ski and snowboard community.
The three features of the Fast Food App enhance and personalize the Saga customer’s experience. The Mix ‘N Match feature allows customers to preview their winter looks by mixing together different combinations of jackets, pants, soft goods and accessories to find their favorite style for the winter season. Once customers have created their ideal look, stickers can be added to the picture customizing the experience. The Mix ‘N Match feature even allows users to share their customized look with friends and family by providing the option to upload the picture to twitter, facebook, instagram and other social media platforms. The Video Feed allows users to access all of their favorite Saga skiing and snowboarding videos by connecting to the Saga Outerwear Youtube channel.

Yes, that’s correct! We’re already skiing here in Vermont and you can feel the excitement in the air! Killington Resort has made an impressive amount of snow on the upper mountain and due to the recently installed staircase system and a downloading operation, we’re enjoying fantastic conditions considering the calendar date.
Skiershop made the trip for opening day (How could we miss possibly miss it?!) and can confidently report it’s worth making the trip for anyone in New England. You can’t put a price on the first day of skiing, except Killington did, and at only $49 we find that very reasonable.
Our recommendation is you make the trip immediately. For some of us, winter came as a bit of an early surprise. If you fall into that category, don’t fret, we have everything you need to get fully outfitted for the season. New product continues to arrive daily, so keep checking our website and facebook page for updates!
Now what are you waiting for, get out there and make some turns! For the first time this winter I get to say, “see you on the hill!”
We’ve had some unbelievable autumn weather recently! Perfect for a few final laps on the mountain bike, some fall foliage hiking, or seasonable beverage consumption. Whatever your activity of choice, one thing is for sure, winter is on the way!
As we begin to transition our physical store from a mountain bike shop to a full on ski shop new product will be arriving at our door every day! So far we’ve already received some awesome new gear from some of our favorite brands including, but not limited to, Blizzard, Tecnica, Dalbello, and Nordica! Our boot and ski wall is already starting to fill up with some of the most popular products of 2014. A lot of the gear that just arrived (most notably Blizzard and Dalbello) sold out very early in the 2012/13 ski season, so don’t wait to snag your new gear!
One of the most exciting pieces of news at Skiershop this season is our ski boot selection is almost TWICE the size of last year. We spent a lot of time and effort hand picking our boot selection this season to ensure we have every type of skier and every type of foot completely covered. The last piece of the puzzle (our final Dalbello shipment) just arrived, so stop on by and check out our full selection of ski boots! Won’t be in Stowe anytime soon? No problem, you can browse our selection right from the comfort of your own home right here!
See you soon, and remember to do those snow dances!
The addition of slopestyle and halfpipe skiing in the 2014 Winter Olympics means we all get to enjoy the intense competition leading up to it. With a massive field of talented park skiers in today’s day and age, who earns the honor to represent their country proves to be a tight race. Almost 2 weeks ago marked the beginning of the World Cup season with the Winter Games NZ (New Zealand). Almost all the expected top competitors were there and the first slopestyle of the season turned into a tremendous competition with skiers one upping each other left and right.
Take a look at the entire slopestyle finals for men and women for FREE here:
Slopestyle and Halfpipe skiing becoming recognized Olympic sports could not have come at a better time from a fans perspective. With live digital media streaming and seemingly endless channels we can expect an exponentially larger and more easily accessible amount of coverage. Sure, some might argue that competition is taking away from the “style” of the sport, but it’s hard to say no to hours upon hours of free ski coverage.
After a couple year hiatus, San Fransisco based Boone Skis is back and promising to be better than ever! The company has reworked everything from their ski designs and core materials all the way to where and how the skis are produced. Boone has always had a vision of producing all their skis in house, in their own factory, with locally sourced materials. After years of testing their original ski designs on the market, some more years of tweaking their ski building procedures, and then tying it all together, they’ve accomplished their goal.
Boone is now offering four different ski models that cover a vast range of skiing styles and applications. The new Boone lineup uses poplar in all their wood cores, changing things up from the bamboo cores found in their original skis. This gives the skis quite a bit more strength and has allowed Boone to develop some seriously high performing, hand made skis.
Take the Squallywood for example. Squaw has always been a big influence on Boone skis, and now the company has the means to build an appropriate ski. It’s relatively stiff with slight camber tip to tail. No rocker, no early taper, just full on big mountain ripper. A ski like this would have been out of place in the Boone lineup of old, but now it’s supported by a high performance park ski, a mid fat all mountain charger, and a giant 130cm fully rockered powder ski.
Look for Boone skis to find their way back into Skiershop for 2014. We’ll make sure to mount up each of their models for demo, so if you’re in the Stowe area stop by to try some hand built skis straight out of San Fransisco!
Check out what our friends at Armada are up to over in Korea. Not so long ago this same crew was in our shop, now they are out spreading the Armada love in a foreign land!
Scott team athlete, Tom Wallisch, came back to the states for a hot minute in January to give everyone an update and take some laps in Park City. Check out the video, and our selection of Scott Sports skis (TW pro model in stock). Also check the link after the drop to see what Tom is up to in Sweden.
What’s he up to now?
Salt Lake City, UT, (July 13, 2012) – DPS Skis, the world’s only manufacturer of pure pre-preg carbon fiber sandwich skis, is pleased to announce a new model, the Wailer 112 RPC, to be released during their summer Dreamtime Preorder event starting on July 19th, 2012.
As the dog days of summer take hold across the country, skiers’ thoughts begin to drift towards winter. Days are slowly becoming shorter, and soon enough sweltering afternoons will be replaced by powder filled mornings of cold smoke.
In light of summer dreaming, and in conjunction with July’s Dreamtime Preorder event, DPS is proud to announce the Limited Edition Wailer 112 RPC. The Wailer 112 RPC is a powder surfing/charging machine, and a special variation of the award winning Wailer 112 RP—a close family member.
The RPC (142-115-127) is for skiers that prefer to charge down the fall line, flying through cut up snow and crud in addition to powder. Available in a 192cm length, and only in Pure Carbon+Nano construction, the RPC features slight camber underfoot with a progressive 20-23m turn radius, lower tip and tail rocker, and enhanced SS dampening.
“It’s an RP, and features DPS’ Paddle Tech Geometry™ which made the 112 such a great ski, but the RPC is designed to ski more in the fall line and with more speed,” notes Marshal Olson, Retail Sales Manger for DPS. “The RPC gives up some of the 112 RP’s hard snow carving performance and versatility in exchange for enhanced crud busting and speed through powder.”
Combined with DPS’ powerful yet lightweight carbon construction, this unique shape will allow skiers to surf powder in the morning, then charge leftovers all day as they sniff out stashes.
The Limited Edition Wailer RPC will only be available during the Dreamtime Preorder: July 19 – August 1, 2012. Quantities are limited and early purchase is recommended.
