Skiershop Pro Team Gear Preview – Noah Ranallo

Curious about what gear the pros are using?  We’ll be running a series of posts highlighting 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!

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!
