Urban Assault On Alaska For The Dream Factory

It's no secret that Alaska has been getting hammered by snow this Winter.  Since December, Anchorage has been the site of multiple urban film and photo shoots.

He talks about the fallout from bringing attention to the faulty device and Black Diamond's luke warm response to take accountability.

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.
