New Diamir Vipec Binding!
« Reply #30 on: 12/12/13, 06:04 PM »

The new Fritschi Vipec binding will be arriving at our door by next week! We'll only be receiving ten of these here in December, so give us a jingle at 425-888-6397 to preorder yours. We've talked about this binding before after getting our greedy eyeballs on a pre-production version, and I'll spare you the gory details.

Here's why we're pumped: The Vipec is a tech binding with an adjustable release value of up to 12 for both the heel and toe fittings. It also features true elastic heel and toe fittings, allowing the binding to accommodate ski flex and extreme forces without pre-releasing. You can switch from ski to walk mode without releasing from the toepeice, and the binding weighs in at a mere 8 grams heavier than Dynafit Vertical ST. How much, you ask? An extremely reasonable $559. Shoot, I'll take two!

Martin Volken's Hazard Evaluator scale!
« Reply #31 on: 12/22/13, 05:11 PM »

The Hazard Evaluator;
Hazard Evaluation in the context of skiing is a big topic and I have put a lot of thought into this.
Have a read.

High consequence decision-making is difficult. If time pressures are added to the process, life can become stressful very fast.
I am a mountain guide and guiding service owner and take a lot responsibility over other peoplesí lives. My particular profession involves risk to live and limb. The decision-making process lacks the comforting redundancies of a more procedural risk management process. Considering that there is always a residual risk in high consequence decision-making, the long-range odds are not stacked favorably for a professional mountain guide. I also had to come to terms with the fact that the average human does not process information optimally in a high stress situation.
The most tangible differentiator in my versus other professionís risk management decision making schemes is that they often happen on a seemingly intuitive level, since the environment and general nature of the job do not lend themselves to procedural decision making. The situations often lack redundant safety measures. The time and place when procedural decision making fails and you have to make a lonely judgment call. This is when the following scale becomes interesting.....

We've got our fingers crossed that it's coming soon.

When the storm hits, be ready to break trail and harvest face shots with a ski from Blizzard's Free Mountain Lite category. The Scout and Kabookie feature the geometry and flipcore design of the popular Cochise and Bonafide, with a lighter construction that's easier to skin with and provides a more forgiving feel on the way down. If you're not ready to sacrifice carving performance in your touring setup, or you're looking for a resort ski that doesn't require Bode Miller to flex it through a sweet turn, the 108 waisted Scout or the slightly narrower Kabookie have what you need.

Come on down to the shop to check out more skis and chat with one of us. As always, mounting is free when you buy a ski or binding with us.

In case you live in a woodstove, a quick heads-up that it's COLD out there. If you're feeling the chill, we wanna help you out. Buy any men's or women's ski jacket or pant, and we'll hook it up with a free OR Baselayer (that's like $70 right there, for the math people). You can come down to the shop and check it out, or shop online and we will tuck one in the box. Free shipping too. Get it while it's hot! Er... well, you understand.

« Reply #40 on: 08/14/14, 01:20 PM »

Introducing the Lightest Boot Crampon in the World!
Tech Crampon 250


This ultra lightweight boot crampon is the ultimate tool for steep icy ascents.

Weighing in at a mere 250g (per pair!) this HSLA steel front point crampon attaches using the toe tech fittings in your ski boot with simply the turn of a screw. Field tested by IFMGA guide Martin Volken from the Swiss Alps to the North Cascades, this product will revolutionize the crampon industry. Add this to your set up and never be caught with your crampons left in the car again!
