That makes it twice as easy to apply which is exactly half as much work. Even those of us that are too lazy to wax can make it happen! If you're looking for good glide and more consistent performance from y..

While cavemen used their roug..

The Piuma Vertical Pole is a 100% carbon fiber shaft appended with sleek Vertical race baskets.

While Movement has made their mark in the ski industry with some of the lightest skis known to man, their focus with the Race Pro Carbon Pole was a bit different. Making one of the most cost-effective race poles on the market was seemingly the focus here. Weighing only slightly more than most other carbon race poles, the Race Pro costs much less. Lower cost doesn’t necessarily have..

Standing atop the podium on race day isn't a stand-alone event. Months of training runs that start in the daylight and end with a headlamp, solo dawn patrols, and many thousands of vertical feet climbed all go into winning a race. All those funny off-balance falls, pounding on your boots to clear the packed powder, and celebratory pole taps with your friends can take its toll on yo..

Ortles? Rhymes with...well, nothing really. Monte Ortles is the tallest peak above Bormio where Ski Trab designs, builds, and tests all of their products including these cool sticks. In all the years there have been adjustable ski poles, the only jump in design seems to have been going from the dreaded twist lock to a clamp-style system. Moving adjustable pole-design forward, Trab ..

At Skimo Co we're pretty conscientious about things that are light, so the construction of the Vapor Carbon 2 Pole was a real head turner around here. Designed specifically for ski-mountaineering and backcountry skiers, these weight-conscious poles are something we can really get behind.

The benefits of skiing with a Whippet are undeniable and when you need it, it’s irreplaceable. When you don’t need it, it feels a bit like running with scissors. Sometimes you don’t know if you’ll need it until you get there. Is this going to be a high-speed corn lap or a side-slipping nail-biter? If it’s going to be a ripping corn lap it’s nice to not be skiing with a knife in you..

Built on the same time-tested platform as the Speed 20 pack, the Speed 28 operates under the same philosophy as its lower-volume brethren. Except in this case, Dynafit argues that more volume is better. If you’re doing more touring than racing, you just might agree.

One of the (very) few drawbacks of the amazing X3-600 pack is that gear on the bottom of the top loader can be hard to access. Well now CAMP has enabled you to go in through the back door.

Four elastic hooks and a daisy chain on the bottom of the bag hook to a wide array of packs and..

Not all airbags are created equal. Ideally, if you were to remove the airbag system from the pack, it would still be one that you enjoy skiing with.
