G3 FINDr 102 Ski and G3 Ion 12 Binding Review

G3 FINDr 102 Ski The G3 FINDr 102 ski performed exactly as the G3 website states, “bridging the gap between fat, floaty powder skis and super light mountaineering skis.” No matter the conditions, the G3 FINDr 102 met the demands of the day, making this ski a possible quiver of one ski. I’ve been testing out the G3 FINDr 102 ...

Fischer Pro Mtn 86 TI 2017 Ski Review

Leave it to Fischer, with its storied race program to remind me that skis don’t have to be super fat and over 115mm wide to be fun.  As the industry kept pushing towards fat skis, I tagged along and my skis got bigger and bigger.  Than I noticed something; while I could carve adequately on a fat ski on days ...

Venture Zelix Snowboard Review

Zelix Venture Snowboard

If you want a flexible very responsive snowboard then look no further, it has arrived. I must admit that I had some issues with trying the Venture Zelix Snowboard, because I couldn’t find an adaptor that fit the 4 scree hole system that is on the board.  Hence, I wasted part of the ski season by not having the right one. ...

2016 Fischer Ranger 98 Ti Ski Review

Fischer is one of those brands that continuously puts out great products but doesn’t have the cache of the largest ski companies as a result of smaller marketing budgets and less exposure.  The Austrian company has a track record of creating high-performing, high-quality skis and I got to ride a new option for next year and write this 2016 Fischer ...
