Back Country Ball at Sugar Bowl

Best Touring Binding

At the intersection of fun and education, the most learning takes place. The Backcountry Ball at Sugar Bowl was a hit. Listen to what the Sierra Avalanche Center guys say. Right after this, there was the tragedy at Donner Ski Ranch, (Right next-door) and the accident at Alpine Meadows. Be safe and err on the side of caution, Freshies aren’t worth the altering of all the lives of your loved-ones.
On the lighter side, the new Atomic, touring binding is reviewed and Daron Rahlves gives some good turns in a POV cam. Happy New Year!



Atomic Tracker binding is the best touring binding.

Pro Ski Instruction Jeremy Allen

Get outside your comfort-zone... but wear your helmet.

Daron Rahlves and Nate Holland in Tahoe at Alpine Meadows, preparing for the race that will push the envelope of ski racing further into the awesomeness realm.
“You mean I can register for a ski/snowboard race that combines all disciplines, race against pros and be in the running to win $10,000.00 and a chunk of $50,000.00?” The answer to this question is, “Yes.” I did. You can too. Daron Rahlves and Nate Holland explain it here. Buck up and throw-down.
