We at Skiershop.com realize that not everyone lives in a ski town. Many people work in the city and head up to the hills for the weekend. So in an effort to give away some free schwag, we are having a weekend photo contest. Post your best picture from skiing this weekend to our Facebook page by Monday 1/23 Noon EST, and enter to win a free pair of Flylow gloves and a Mammut Scarf. We’ll announce the winner on our Facebook page Monday afternoon.
As we get closer to ski movie season more trailers continue to be released. Yesterday PowderWhore Productions dropped the teaser to their newest film, “Breaking Trail,” and it has a great vibe…”Bottom line for me floating powder is what it’s all about.” – Erme
This spring we’ve been putting together Staff Profiles for our reader and shoppers to show them what gear we at Skiershop.com use and why. Here is our latest installment… – Erme

Why Stowe? Why NOT Stowe!? I love it here; the town is full of friendly people with skiing on the brain, the mountain has the best back and side-country terrain in the East, and you can always find a buddy in the bar after a day of shredding! Oh yeah, and in the summer there’s hiking, mountain biking, disc golf, and creemees. Sweet, delicious creemees. Does it get any better?
Ideal day on the hill? Well gosh, I don’t know, maybe a beautiful bluebird day after a 2 foot powder dump?? That would be nice, and let’s add my 3 favorite ski buddies, some pocket chocolate for the lift ride, and… well actually that’s enough for me to have a great day! Oh, and perhaps a pizza and some Buck Hunter at the Horn afterwards!

Summertime activity and tool of choice? Mountain biking on my Giant Cypher. We’ve got access to some great singletrack here in Stowe, and more trails are being built every year. It’s the way to go!
Après location of choice? The bar obviously! I like the Matterhorn, it gives you the option of sushi on the days where you want to feel a little classy. Plus they have Mountain Ale on tap, which is key for any Stowe après experience.

While many of us are still sweating out a lingering heatwave, the ski industry is getting geared up for the fall preseason and despite 90+ degree weather, the new gear is arriving at Skiershop.
The other day we received a shipment of Mammut products (look for a dealer review soon), and we wanted to highlight the Mammut Pulse Barryvox Avalanche Beacon. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that with the recent popularity in AT gear, more skier/riders are looking to head into the backcountry and if you head into the BC, you need a beacon! Avalanches are the real deal and can happen anywhere; East or West.
There are several great beacons on the market, but what sets the Mammut Pulse apart is their digital and analog 3-antenna approach that provides a 360 degree directional search arrow. Hopefully you will not have to use it, but the Mammut Pulse also allows the user to locate up to 8 multiple burials. This feature allows the user to mark specific burials and focus on one rescue at a time, check them off once they are rescued, and shows which signals are being searched by other Pulse users.
Needless to say, this beacon will greatly increase chances for survival in multiple burial situations with proper use…pretty awesome. As always with any beacon make sure you practice your skills before you head out in the BC.
