The SIA 2012 footage train continues… Check out next years gear from Smith and Surface skis, as Skiershop.com tries to piece together their memories from the 2012 Snowsports Industries America tradeshow in Denver, Colo.
Prior to the holiday week, the Skiershop crew was unpacking a large order of Smith goggles, shades, and dome protectors. In my opinion, nothing integrates better than the Smith helmets and goggles, plus they look rad! Peep what the shop has in stock for Smith 2012, and put some of that holiday gift money to use.
Parallels, produced by Dendrite Studios was produced in seven days for the Intersection Competition at Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival. Pretty amazing and a great follow up from their 2010 film Out of The Shadows. - 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!
Ski – 181 Surface Live Life
Bindings – Look PX12
Boots – Dalbello Krypton Storm ID
Outerwear – Mammut Sophora Jacket/Vail Pant

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.
Our friends at High Fives Foundation just sent us this video and press release regarding their Co-Founder and President Roy Tuscany. It is great to see Roy on skis again…High Five! – Erme Catino
After suffering a T-12 Burst fracture on April 29, 2006, it took Roy Tuscany five years to return to the spot that forever changed his life. Surrounded by the positivity of friends and the power of High Fives Non-Profit Foundation, he returned to the spot exactly five years to the date. Looking back on the five years of the injury, Roy has relearned how to walk, how to ski, and how to inspire others through the formation of his non-profit foundation High Fives (highfivesfoundation.org). Watch how the power of positive thought and support has empowered Roy to return to the spot that forever changed his life and get the ultimate redemption

In case you missed it, our friends at High Fives Foundation just wrapped up their 4th annual “Trains” – a invitational slopestyle event/fundraiser held at Alpine Meadows, CA. According to Roy Tuscany this was the best Trains ever, and from the looks of the video it seemed like a great time!
High Fives Foundation is a Tahoe-based 501.c.3 non-profit organization dedicated to raising money and awareness for athletes who have suffered a life-altering injury while pursuing their dream in the winter action sports community. For more information visit highfivesfoundation.org/
