Free the Powder Ski Gloves

There is an inventory reduction sale (more off an already legit price) on these gloves right now. Killer value $45. See end of post for a link… 

I get excited whenever I hear about a new ski industry brand in Park City…especially a brand going direct-to-consumer online. Previously I have featured both Soul Poles […]

Cyber Week Ski Bum Deals (2015)

Updated November 23, 2015

I am a huge fan of sustainable manufacturing…especially ski manufacturers. There are THREE in particular in my stomping grounds of Park City and the Wasatch Mountains of Utah:

RAMP

RAMP skis are manufactured by skiers in Park City. Takes about 30 seconds of turning their skis, or visiting their website for […]

Handmade Skis! (in U.S.A.) RAMP

For the past couple of winters I have been proud to be riding Garage Skis. Proud for one because my friend custom builds these out of his garage in the Salt Lake valley. But I was also proud to be on skis that were handmade in the USA, rather than built by machine in […]

Bamboo Soul Poles

Heard of Soul Poles? The company has been around for over a year, but not yet two. In that short amount of time they have made TONS of progress spreading the word…

No snow. No ski. That’s the simple fact of global warming and the grim predictions of disappearing alpine snow. And […]

Discrete Headwear: Caps & Beanies

Recently I was psyched to get my hands on a couple of Discrete Beanies, thanks to Julian (Julian’s Blog). I’m wearing one of them right now at the office…the Red Banger. Julian and team certainly run a class act over there. I’ve been seeing this brand around Little Cottonwood (and beyond!) for a while…after […]

Used Skis & Evo

Are you in the market for a hitch mounted bike rack? Check out the Thule TranSport T2 if so. After installing and using it a few times, I am psyched with it. In […]

Not so long ago I plugged the outdoor gear database from OGE, Inc. Search and compare prices on nearly 500,000 products at this site. Outdoor gear, apparel, tools, you name it. Jesse just emailed me to let me know that now the OGE Outdoor Blog has just been totally re-worked and launched to the world. […]
