Hello everyone. We are warming up for the 2016/17 winter season already. Yes, time to get super psyched. Just a feeling, but I personally believe this will be a great winter season for all of us in the northern hemisphere. Our local resort usually opens end of Sept or early Oct so it’s just around the corner for us and coming your way. Wax those boards, make sure you can find your equipment and get your vacation time dialed in.… Read the rest
One day as I was hiking with my dog, I found myself tuning in to my dog and what he was doing. I began to understand that in many ways my dog is teaching me about life.
Lesson 1: Stop and smell the poop. Enough said! (Just kidding).
My dog (as most dogs) is obsessed with smells. He runs between smells, stopping for the next pile of poop. I got to thinking that he is (disgustingly to us) breathing in life … Read the rest
Summit CRZ 106cm Skiboards with Salomon L10 Release Bindings 2016
Having not ridden these before production I had some trepidation about whether these would perform as we had designed them. It was at Wolf Creek, a powder day with 10″ fresh on top of a 4 foot base, that I got to ride them for the first time.

You know, lessons, poles, traveling with all that equipment. Skiboards are very much under the radar with most retail store sales people clueless when you ask about them. Fun is what it’s all about, not rules. Break out of the old ways and treat yourself to the experience of liberation that skiboards can provide. Be on the vanguard of something new.
Those who’re often interested in trying skiboards are usually, I find, individuals who aren’t driven to fit into existing
Hope everyone had a wonderful 2014. Here is to a great New Year and lots more fun on the slopes in 2015. We would love to hear your experiences, stories and see you in action. Wishing you the best in the New Year.
