Seth Morrison is arguably the best skier of all time (he’s my personal favorite – yes, I’m biased) and I am always interested to test out the types of products that he endorses and influences. Every season we see Seth step his game up in new and unique ways and his journey into more ski mountaineering situations directly impacts his gear for the following season. I strongly feel that we all benefit from Seth’s exploits through much better and more relevant products. Seth can easily out ski us all, but his r&d input can help create products like the Unification Pro that can translate very well for us mere mortals.
The Unification Pro features amazingly light, waterproof and breathable 27K/20K GORE-TEX Pro Shell for all-day performance, sleeve articulation so that you won’t experience any dreaded sleeve shortening when you lift your arms, well laid out pockets (including a pass through pocket from the right chest pocket for mid layer access – super convenient!), an adjustable hood with wired brim (I love this feature!) for perfect peripheral vision and storm protection and a removable powder skirt (this is great if you’re like me and ditch your powder skirts). I also love the fact that Oakley includes wrist gaiters since they eliminate drafts on super cold days. The only qualm I have with this jacket is that it runs slightly shorter in the front than I would like, so make sure to do your research to get the right size.
I highly recommend checking out the Oakley Unification Pro Jacket this season if you can afford it. The Unification Pro is not cheap, but it’s worth every penny. This is not a replace every season type of jacket and can easily hold its own when compared to all other technical outerwear pieces in the game.
Olympic gold-medalist Joss Christensen took to social media this weekend after being stalked by two females for over three days. The pair of stalkers first approached Joss outside his gym and asked for a picture. The next day he spotted them near his mother's house while he was visiting. The pair then followed the Park City skier back to his cabin yesterday, which turned out to be the final straw. He took to his Instagram to post the following message, urging the females to leave him alone
JACKSON, Wyo. — Saying he’s done wasting time and is ready to devote his entire winter season to ripping pow, 4-year-old toddler dirtbag Caden Henry officially dropped out of preschool Monday so he could move to Jackson Hole and finally have the winter of a lifetime he's been waiting a whole year since learning to ski to enjoy. Instead of spending the winter coloring, learning the ABC’s and counting to 10, the grom plans to chase storms around the Tetons while living out of his retrofitted
It's lunchtime, 1620 metres above sea level in the Top Hut. Above the scuffle of snow boots and jangle of nutcrackers (the standard-issue metal attachment everyone uses to grip the rope tow), benevolent banter fills the building. "You guys here for lunch?" "Picked a great weekend for it! Forecast is for these snow flurries to continue all night..." "Rock n' roll." Wearing harnesses and broad smiles, riders and sliders mingle in the kitchen, reception/dining/bar area and lounge as warm
