Atomic skis, boots, and bindings are on my feet for a reason. Performance and feel. For racing the Race GS D2's are powerful in the turns, smooth at speed, hold on ice and haul ass. I'm skiing on these at world cup ski cross, X Games, training GS, flying down groomers and at my 4th Olympics in Vancouver. The best free ski line has arrived. Equipment does matter and Atomic has the quiver that delivers. They have skis that rule it all. Powder...Atlas, Powder Freestyle... Bent Chetler, All Mountain / Pow... Coax and every day all around...Nomad Savage Ti. Atomics are 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!
Spyder Mountain clothing keeps me warm, dry and feeling good on and off the ski hill. I mostly roll the Trucker or Brawler jacket and Kick Ass pant. The Bibby Bib is very cool too. They also produce the best comp suits and race gear in the world.
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.
ContourHD is my helmet camera of choice for capturing epic moments. It's super easy to use, captures excellent HD quality video and it's low profile/weight keeps me from noticing it's even there. It holds up in the cold and takes a beating. I use it as a tool for ski cross by getting to know the track and the best places to make a pass. Skiing and riding moto with the Contour HD lets me relive and share my action. Go get one and share your footage on http://www.contour.com
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
Back Country Access
Back Country Access has top quality equipment that I rely on while skiing and snowmobiling. The Tracker2 beacon, Traverse EXT shovel, Profile 240 probe and the BCA Float 18 Avalanche Airbag. Smart choices keep you alive, but if the worst happens this equipment can help in the tragic event of an avalanche. Avoid any potential danger and check your local weather and avalanche reports before heading out in the mountains. In Tahoe check SAC reports at www.sierraavalanchecenter.org to know before you go.
Start Haus Ski Shop
Specialty ski shop in Truckee, CA run by a very knowledgable crew covering all aspects of skiing. Local race day wax calls to the best product for race and skiing the deepest snow. They have it covered. I'm confident dropping off my Atomics to get dialed in for the season with base grinds, tunes, mounting and boot work that it will be done right. If you're in with The Start Haus team then you're in for the best on hill experience.
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
