He talks about the fallout from bringing attention to the faulty device and Black Diamond's luke warm response to take accountability. He describes his experience of the nearly 6 minutes spent under the snow, the training he and his crew used to save his life as well as and the physical and mental effects that were the result of
The new Atomic Hawx Ultra 130 sure is a looker - and it skis damn well too. | Atomic photo. I haven’t been one to ski a dedicated resort boot in quite a few years. With the stellar performance that crossover boots have offered recently – including Atomic’s own walk-mode boots – I just haven’t really seen the point, but testing the new Atomic Hawx Ultra 130 made me realize what I’ve been missing out on. A few inbounds days Jackson Hole confirmed my suspicions - I was blown away by how
The iconic Caite Zeliff. Two-time Queen of Corbet's, Jackson Hole shredder, and as of late, paraglider Caite Zeliff sat down with the When Women Fly podcast to chat.
