I feel confident and ready for the mountains using Atomic skis, boots, bindings, packs and the newest line for the brand, their ski wear because it's built by skiers for skiers. I've had great success and a strong working relationship with Atomic since my first year racing for them in 2000. They listen to their athletes and produce amazing skiing product from racing to big mountain. Equipment does matter and Atomic has the quiver that delivers. They rule it all. Atomic is my choice.
Red Bull is my liquid energy. I go back and forth between their Regular and Sugar Free energy drink when I need a boost. It works! A new addition is the Red Bull Cola. Made from natural ingredients this cola is awesome. Red Bull energy shots are here too!
Sugar Bowl Resort
Sugar Bowl Resort is my favorite ski area because of the terrain and snow. They get dumped on. Rolling and twisting or straight and fast groomed runs, open trees, gullies and chutes, and challenging steeps. Great service and food too. Come check it out and go ski Rahlves' Run.
Giro goggles have quality lenses for crisp and clear vision in all light. The Basis goggle feels good on the face, has great wind protection and a wide range of sight. The helmets are lightweight, fit awesome and have incredibly high safety ratings. They are built to protect and feel good. Skiing fast or pushing myself on big lines where there is a potential risk of a crash, I feel confident in my Giro protection. Racing I use the Streif, free skiing the Seam or Chapter and mtn biking the Remedy.
Coal is a quality headwear line that delivers great fit and forward thinking design. It's more than an accessory. It's part of me, my identity, and lifestyle. A Coal beanie keeps me feeling good on and off the snow http://www.coalheadwear.com
Sun and wind will beat your skin up in the high elevations. Snow increases the intensity of the sun. When out in the elements, protect yourself with The California Original. ZINKA sunscreen. My favs are the clear sunscreen lip balm, SPF 30 and the Face Stick.
Coming from a race background I know the benefits of fast skis and keeping your boards in top condition. I use WEND wax products to get the most out of my skis. Waxing with quality product makes for a better day on snow. Blowing by the pack to fresh pow, hauling on the flats and having the speed at your will is the reason I use WEND wax. Check out my Signature Line: The fastest wax in the world! High flouro race paste wax that goes on quick and makes the boards even quicker. Thanks WEND for keeping me out front!
This ultimate ski sock increases circulation from the toes up through the calf to help keep warm, lessen fatigue and quicken recovery time. Bottom line, your feet and lower legs feel better after skiing and hiking for those back country runs when using CEP socks. The compression rate and material used are super comfortable on top of their benefits. I also wear them traveling and training
Tahoe Sports Hub
Year round sport shop in Truckee, CA covers everything for the outdoor enthusiast. Run by passionate and skilled professionals they have your needs covered. I'm confident dropping off my Atomic skis to get mounted and dialed in for the season, plus my boot work done. Take a moment for a friendly conversation of the latest and greatest gear, best deals and then the important stuff of what trails are in prime condition, the current resort conditions and the favorite pow stashes to find.
I raced in Reusch gloves and they made special one offs for me with thumb and knuckle protection for DH & SG. After racing they came to me for advice on a powder / every day glove. After a few months of design, searching for materials and colors we came up with the D Money Exclusive. It's a super high quality and functional glove with a comfortable fit. Get a pair and you'll be loving them.
