Head to Chamonix

Even though the West Coast is gearing up for some more snow, let’s face it, it has been a low tide year thus far in North America. Which is why many of our friends are heading to Europe this spring. You should too…

We fully endorse this trip and approve this message…

Chamonix Update 2

Our good friend Dean Decas has been getting the goods in Chamonix, France. Last week he sent us an update with him shredding pow and chilling with Seth Morrison, and the other day he sent us additional eye candy. Here is Deano living it up in Europe, and shredding on his new Black Crows Skis, pretty rad! – Erme

Send It Studios finds pow in Utah

Editors Note: Skiershop Team Rider Adam Mikaelian and Send It Studios have arrived in Salt Lake City, Utah. However, until a few days ago winter was still late to the party. That all changed this past weekend when Snowbird finally received a fresh nine inches of fluff. It was enough to cover the rocks for a short period and allowed the boys to slay some powder.

Gecko Climbing Skins: Who needs Glue…

Words: Erme Catino

Early season turns are right around the corner! With anticipated cold air supposedly moving across the country this week, it’s about time to get your gear in order for the season. While those first few skin laps at the local hill are fine for some un-tuned skis, skinning up the mountain with beat-up skins that have lost their glue can easily turn first snow-day stoke into a grumpy mess.

Enter Gecko Skins. Gecko Skins are based out of Austria and are NOT a glue skin. They use “molecular fusion,” which allow the skins to not wear out as easily, and can be cleaned with luke warm water to remove dirt, pine needles, etc. Furthermore, their adhesion layer can withstand temperature from + 250° C to – 70°C, and are patent pending.

I have fondled a pair of these in the shop and I am excited to get on them later this fall. Though according to Justin Reyher of Backcountry Magazine, “they are the real deal.” Check them out…
