    Very fair points, all of them. And as to the points of not taking the advice of someone you don't ski with, I also agree.

    You're almost certainly right about wider skis making sense in Colorado...

    Yes, this point on demographics is 100% accurate. Mallwalker and I tour primarily, which means walking, and no matter how strong or fit you are, you'll always benefit from lighter gear. I started my...

    I've got an older ascendant in blue (M) I would send you for the cost of postage. IMO this compares to the Nano Air Light hoody, though it has a different feel to it.

    Awesome pictures, thanks for sharing! I feel personally attacked with your modern farming pic - I need a safe place where I can ski like a goober all I want. How's the snow up in White Pine?

    Good price on the Brooks Range piece. That's a great layer - it's a shame that B-R went out of business, since they made some really high quality stuff. Highly recommend it.

    Makes sense. I can only think of a few places in the Wasatch where a slide would be more terrifying (the top of Coalpit Headwall comes to mind). So glad he's okay.
