Sweet Protection Review

Sweet Protection is a funky Norwegian brand which produces the highest quality Gore Tex clothing, as well as arguably the best ski helmets on the market. Snowmoment has long been a fan of this super innovative brand and here we want to guide you through the new range for 2014.

The key difference between the coming seasons Sweet Protection range and that of years past is the colour scheme. Sweet have dulled down the bright colours of the past and brought a drabber look into fashion, although still keeping bursts of colour here and there. You will see this trend from many other brands next season, except maybe Sweet Protections biggest competitor Norrona. Norrona have stayed true to the colour schemes of old and have awesome bright colours, especially across the Norrona Lofoten range.

Sweet ski wear should be your first point of call if you are serious about big mountain skiing. Snowmoment has got the new Crusader Flightsuit in for this season and it looks very sharp indeed in the new grey / catch-up red. If you can’t quite stretch to the full Flightshuit then the Sweet Protection Supernaut jacket is the one to go for in our view. It has a slimmer fit and maintains all of the quality of the Crusader, without the price.

On the Helmets front, the World Cup Skier Axel Lund Svindal was wearing the Sweet Helmet last season, covered in the Red Bull print. This is testament to how amazing these helmets are! The new range includes MIPS technology for the first time and in our view the Trooper MIPS is the one to go for in white. We are stocking this for the coming season, so drop in now and check out the new Range from Sweet Protection.

Checking In with Former Grom Comp Winner Parkin Costain

While most 16-year-olds were up to God know’s what last summer, Parkin Costain, the winner of TGR’s 2015 Grom Comp, was nine-to-fiveing for his dad, who builds bike parks at ski areas. He needed to come up with the money for something that would help develop him into a pro skier. That something: a snowmobile. Enter the 2017 TGR Grom Contest Parkin pounds the backcountry on his snowmobile probably more than you brush your teeth. He’s homeschooled (but not weird), and invests his time

Proof you can be a Good Mother While Still Feeding Your Passion for the Mountains

Proof you can be a Good Mother While Still Feeding Your Passion for the Mountains

Leighan Falley was only ten years old when she decided that she was going to climb a mountain. “That one,” she told her mom in the car one day, pointing to Denali 200 miles off into the horizon. She didn’t even know its name at the time but the monstrous peak was calling to her. Perhaps love for the mountains and propensity for the extreme comes natural living in the rugged, isolated wilderness of Alaska. But upon first glance, Leighan is not necessarily the type of woman you would

Photo Tour:  Chile After First Major Snowstorm of 2017

The first major snowstorm of 2017 has slammed into central Chile bringing an early Mother's Day gift to Valle Nevado, Arpa Snow Cats, El Colorado, La Parva and Portillo resorts.  With over two feet from the May storm and another expected to hit on Wednesday,  Chile's main ski areas could begin to open for the season several weeks ahead of schedule, as early as late May.  Ski season in South America generally operates mid-June to October. We have collected a series of photos from the
