Catching up with the Skiershop Team

It has been a busy past few weeks of traveling, snowstorms, and then meltdowns… Through it all the Skiershop Team has been absolutely crushing it and having a blast at the same time. Here’s a quick recap on what has been going down – we at Skiershop couldn’t be prouder of our riders this season!

Our dynamic female duo of Louise Lintilhac and Ashley Maxfield took their skills to the Subaru North American Freeskiing Championships in Snowbird, Utah. Ashley took home 7th place, and unfortunately Weeze took home a black eye. The pictures looked scary, and we are glad that she is ok. Next up is Kirkwood, beginning April 4, 2012.

On the jib side, Tyler Duncan and Will Hibbs recently returned from the Dumont Cup at Sunday River, ME where they both made the semi-finals – yeah boys!

On the local level. Skiershop Riders Noah Ranallo and Colby Vavolotis continued to dominate the Ski The East Freeride Tour. Following the tour’s final stop at Jay Peak, VT, Valvolotis emerged victourous as the tour winner. For Ranallo, the Jay Peak competition marked the second time he won the Cliff Huckstable Big Air Award – Congrats boys!

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. They also found time in the dry spell to create a hilarious intro… – Erme Catino

Stowe Mountain Resort – Last Trick Rail Jam

Words: Erme Catino

This past Memorial Day Weekend, Stowe Mountain Resort hosted their annual Last Trick Rail Jam.  With almost two weeks of rain and warm humid July type weather, the resort scraped together the remains of the winter snowpack and pulled off a few features; though it was so warm that the snow was evaporating into a mist as the morning progressed.

Prior to the public event going down, I was invited to tag along with EASTablished Media and check out their athletes filming and shooting for the next “Tough Break” webseries edit.  It was a great time watching the kids throw down, many of which are coached by locals Ben Grunow and Matt Goodson…watch out for these groms!

Below are a handful of photos from the day, thank you to Stowe Mountain Resort for again putting together a great event especially in some dicey weather.

Rossignol 11/12 – Sickle

Editor’s Note: Rossignol’s Freeride S-Series already includes the powder slaying S7, though this spring ski testers and athletes have also been raving about the Sickle.  Below is a sneak peek and press release from Rossignol. – Erme Catino

It’s official! Rossignol’s 11/12 Sickle picks apart big lines, backcountry booters and boilerplate with swagger and style to spare. Already compiling a fan base including athletes and ski testers, the Sickle is showcasing the effortless float and madman versatility that make it the “go-to” for any serious freeskier next season.

Jason Hutchins of Blister Gear Review states simply, “The Rossignol Sickle. THE MOST VERSATILE SKI EVER. The end.”

While Rossi athlete Chris Logan adds, “The Sickle is super stable and just charges on everything. SpinTurn Rocker makes pow skiing so… easy while the sidecut and stiffness helps it rail on hardpack.”

The 11/12 Sickle boasts SpinTurn Rocker, a 100% full rocker shape that delivers unsurpassed float and a playful, buttery feel in powder. This 100% full rocker shape combines with Extended Sidecut technology and a damp, stable wood core construction, allowing it to rail on hardpack as well.

See the Sickle in action in Level 1’s new movie “After Dark”. Trailer dropping July 1st!

11/12 Sickle: 140/110/133   Radius: 21.3 @ 186cm.  Sizes: 174cm, 186cm.

Skiershop will be carrying the Sickle in the fall, though we still have a couple of this years model in stock (same ski).  So if you are already drooling, cash in on the spring discount – 10/11 S6.

How long have you worked at Skiershop: 3 years.

Why Stowe? Well, besides being one of the best hills in the East and a super cool town to live in, this is where I learned to ski. I’ve been skiing Stowe since I was 4.

Ideal day on the hill? Ideal? When it’s a bluebird day, the snow is deep and untracked, and you don’t have to rush to get your turns.  When you get a day like that and you can just roll out with your crew and enjoy it.


Ski – Kastle MX108, Rossignol S3, Surface Live Life Skullcandy, Head iGS RD…and a few more pairs…don’t tell my wife.

Bindings – Head Mojo 15’s, Marker Barons and a bunch of Marker Comps.

Boots – Salomon X3 RC CS.

Outerwear – Scott Cascadia Jacket & Scott Enumclaw Pants.

Goggles – Scott Fix.

Summertime activity and tool of choice? Well, I’m the roadie of the Skiershop crew. My main ride is a Dura-Ace equipped Specialized.

Best day ever? That’s a hard one. The day that sticks out was a powder day at Mt. Hutt in New Zealand.  It wasn’t super deep, but I was on my own putting lines down one next to the other. There was so much snow that I almost skied way past the resort base a few times.  Those were some of the best turns I can remember.

Why Stowe? I like the vibe on the East Coast, and Stowe has the most to offer out of anywhere I’ve skied on this side of the country.

Ideal day on the hill? I’ll probably take some heat from my fellow employees on this one, but in my opinion nothing beats a 50 degree sunny park day…Oh and there can’t be any wind.


Ski – Boone Park/Freeride/Pow

Bindings – Rossi FKS 18/Marker Jester

Boots – Nordica Dead Money

Outerwear – First Drop/Outdoor Technology

Best day ever? Either the first day I landed a cork 7 or the first time I landed a dub.

Summertime activity and tool of choice?: Mountain Biking – Giant Reign 1.

Favorite Stowe après location? Piecasso.
