I guess the self-induced ‘head down in the weeds’ hiatus from fun I took the past few years caused me to miss more than a few things. I knew that Black Diamond had acquired Pieps, but was interwebbing yesterday and saw for the first time Black Diamond branded avalanche beacons. Really clean and modern looking […]
Had some goodness from Peak Design recently find it’s way into my mailbox. Will do a review on the gear once I get a chance to use it, but wanted to throw up a quick post as I’d never heard of them and they make some pretty nice looking stuff.
The retail machine is doing it’s best to move Christmas into early November. I’m not sure if they realize that offering Black Friday deals in early November doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll make more money but likely means they’ll just shift their revenue from December to November.

Jeez, talk about falling off the wagon. Let’s get this look at 2012-13 splitboards back up and running before the 13/14 gear drops!

Jones is back in 2012-13 with essentially the same lineup as last year (different size runs) as well as a women’s line. Hopefully the production/QA problems that have been seen in the past have been put behind them as I don’t think releasing some of the boards that have reached some shop floors has been […]
For 2012-13 Voile has revamped their entire lineup with the help of Ben Harmon courtesy of their Sentury Snowboards acquisition. Still made in the USA by polygamous skiboarders with jobs. No longer capped construction, all 2012-13 Voile splitboards come with all the hardware you need, so if you’re price conscious factor that into your decision […]
