Surface 2012

Surface Team Member - Blake Nyman

Surface is still a relatively new ski company, however you wouldn’t know given how fast they grew. They’re similar to Klint, blew up on the scene and aren’t going away.

Skiershop has been carrying Surface for several years, and we are really stoked to have them as one of our featured brands! Below are a few skis to take a look at, click on either of them or HERE to view our featured brand page for Surface.

Still have questions… Give us a shout and we’ll be happy to chat with you about the gear you’re looking for: 1-800-996-8398.

Staff Profile – Mar Muth

Wait...what's my title, what am I suppose to do...ahh yes, Ski!

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

Name and Title: Mar Muth, (Merchandising Manager??  Token Shop Girl?  Sales Associate… I don’t really have a title).

Originally From: Doylestown, PA.

How long have you worked at Skiershop: About 1.5 years.

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!

Gear:

Ski – 181 Surface Live Life

Bindings – Look PX12

Boots – Dalbello Krypton Storm ID

Outerwear – Mammut Sophora Jacket/Vail Pant

Goggles – Smith IO/S

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.

Skiershop Staff Profile – Jeff Siegel – Director of E-Commerce

The Skiershop.com crew has skiing on the mind 24/7, though in the summer they may put a bike to good use too! Each member of our staff is committed to getting you stoked on skiing and equipped with the gear to do so. Here is a little bit of information about the staff so you can see what gear they use and why… – Erme

Jeffrey Siegel, Director of E-Commerce

Originally From: Great Neck, NY/Boca Raton, FL.

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.

Gear:

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? It is epic! There is a lot of side country and the runs carry a good pitch pretty much all the way to the bottom.

Ideal day on the hill? Fresh snow in the woods, come out near the bottom and hit a few rails before I get on the chair to do it again.

Skis – Armada JJ, Surface Double Time and Live Life

Bindings – Tyrolia Peak 18x

Boots – Nordica Ace of Spades

Outerwear – Orage

Goggles – Scott Fix

Best day ever? They all have an epic moment which makes it hard to pick just one. I have had days when the pow was super deep and untracked, bluebird park days, awesome views off the mountain be it cloud formations, endless visibility, or cool looking rime-ice on trees…The best are when these elements collide into one day.

Summertime activity and tool of choice? Mountain Biking! My tool of choice is the Intense Uzzi VP.

Favorite music to listen to while skiing? Anything motivating.

Dealer Review| Surface Skis

Words: Erme Catino

Founded in 2004 and located at the mouth of Little and Big Cottonwood Canyons, Utah (hmmm powder!) Surface skis is the fastest growing brand in freeskiing. Leading the charge is founder Mike Schneider, a true skier who shreds 100+ days a year and whose hands on approach from marketing to product testing with athletes is all based on having fun in the mountains – something we can all relate to.

I first noticed these boards during a month of ski bumming in Utah, their unique three stage rocker and artistic topsheets are hard to miss. Skiershop is stoked to be one of the few online dealers of Surface, and we hope you will use this dealer review to learn more about Surface skis.

One Life: 140/112/132 (179cm, 189cm).

The One Life brings Surface’s own 3 Stage Rocker to the party. Tested by lapping powder choked forests, pow slashes, tree taps, and straighlines, the One Life makes traditional fat skis look archaic. The ski features a Maple-Poplar Wood Core, ABS Sidewall Construction, Extra Thick Edge Material, and Three Stage Rocker Technology.

Live Life: 181cm – 146/110/130,  191cm – 156/120/135

The Live Life features a Maple-Poplar Wood Core, Early Rise in the Tip and Tail, ABS Sidewall Construction, Extra Thick Edge Material, and comes AAA (Alaska, Argentina, Antarctica) approved by ski photographer Adam Clark.

Watch Life: 132/100/122 (172cm, 182cm)
The Watch Life is Surface’s 2010 one ski quiver. Dependable and trustworthy just like the old rig you keep trucking to the mountain. This ski can slay pow, carve you back to the lifts, and hit the park. It features a Maple-Poplar Wood Core, ABS Sidewall Construction, and Extra Thick Edge Material.

Live Free: 181cm – 146/110/130,  191cm – 156/120/135
The Live Free is Surface’s light weight fat ski and comes with Early Rise in the Tip and Tail, Maple-Poplar Wood Core, ABS Sidewall Construction, and Extra Thick Edge Material. Dawn patrols for pow here we come!

No Time: 162cm – 108/76/99,  172cm – 108/76/100, 182cm – 112/82/105
A park ski with Early Rise in the Tip and Tail for those buttery tricks. It features a Maple-Poplar Wood Core, ABS Sidewall Construction, and Extra Thick Edges for rails. The No Time is Surface’s budget friendly park ski. Surface also makes the Next Time – a similar constructed park ski available in 145cm (101/76/99), and 155cm (101/76/99).

My Time – Women’s Park Ski: 162cm – 108/76/99, 172cm – 108/76/100
Girls are charging park and pipe just as hard as the boys, so Surface gave them their own park ski. Built with the same construction as other models this ski features a smooth flex, Early Rise in the Tip and Tail, Maple-Poplar Wood Core, ABS Sidewall Construction, and Extra Thick Edge Material.

In addition to their already unique lineup of skis, this season Surface has partnered with Skullcandy to produce and co-brand 3 sets of skis, poles, and matching Skullcandy Icon 2 headphones. Skiershop will have these available, but act fast because they won’t last long – Take a look at the teaser:

Like what you see…order a pair of Surface skis from Skiershop, and we’ll give you a free pair of Surface poles with your order in addition to being entered to win a season’s pass at your home mountain. As always feel free to contact us: Ask an Expert, or call the shop (1-800-996-8398).
