"History Lesson for Jacksonites" 6/20/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 The Big One Ski DVD
  • Pros:  A great overview of Jackson Holes ski history, Legends skiing Classic lines , A behind the scenes look at TGR creation
  • Cons:  Most footage repeated from earlier movies, More talking than soundtrack, Somewhat missing the stoke factor

Experience:   More documentary than ski porn, this is pretty much a compilation of every Jackson Hole segment that appears in early TGR films. It's a cool history piece to have of you love Jackson, but skip it if you are looking for more snowboarding and soundtrack over talking.
"Great to have in a Pack- Even if you don't Ski" 6/16/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Black Diamond Ski Strap Orange
  • Pros:  Multi- use backcountry tool, Saves the day when your snowboard binding snaps, Guess they must hold skis together good too
  • Cons:  Gah- another 5 bucks I don't have, You usually lose these things to whoever you save, Then they cost another 5 bucks

Experience:   Really a great tool to have in your backcountry pack, they are light weight and can be used to hold anything together such as extra gear to your backpack or a splint to a broken arm. They are a life-saver if your snowboard binding strap breaks.
"A Plus for Function" 6/16/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Profile Mittens
  • Pros:  Easy to rip on and off, Survived a season in my pocession, Simple, well designed cuff
  • Cons:  Not the heaviest insulation, Needs to be periodically re- waterproofed, Not my pick for the uber cold days

Experience:   Was stoked on owning these mittens. They have no inner liner, which I am a fan of, because I spend so much time ripping them on and off in the backcountry. They kept me warmer simply because they were easy to get back into. The cuff was a super functional length, and it's closures were easy to locate and pull tight. I should mention that I did a lot of sled shredding in these mits, and they survived a season of unreasonable abuse. They also never got the mitten stink, which should maybe be listed as one of they re finer selling points. On the negative, they were not the warmest mittens in my line-up, however I probably wore them the most. I plan to buy these mittens again for next season.
"Great snowboarding collapsable pole" 6/14/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Black Diamond Traverse Ski Poles
  • Pros:  Best clamp system for collapsable pole, Can adjust with gloves on, Small enough to carry on backpack while riding
  • Cons:  Still gets frozen sometimes , Once you bend one slightly they are done, The ones with only one adjustment are larger

Experience:   A great hiking pole for backcountry snowboarders. The clamp style adjustment system is easy to use and reliably sturdy. They break down small enough to carry easily on a pack for descents and mine have seen seasons of abuse. I did bend an older model in a tallace field, and even after hours of trying to straighten one of the links I was unable to re-aline the rods enough to fix the pole. I did however, go buy another set. Definitely stoked on this pole.
"Classic TGR" 5/29/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Prophecy Ski DVD
  • Pros:  Awesome to watch the progression, Of course Jeremy Jones has sick lines, More big mountain exploring than booters
  • Cons:  Less shredders and more skiing, Not great for jib fans, Editing not as polished as later TGR staples

Experience:   A classic must own for all who dream of big mountains, this is one flick that I used to watch a lot back in the day. This is a better watch, however, for those of us who dream of Alaskan spines rather than technical rail sessions. As always, TGR ventures to some unique places and really sets the bar for what ski porn should be.
"Big Mountain Classic" 5/25/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Falling Forward Ski DVD
  • Pros:  Great vibe, Solid big mountain riding, Has a lot of heart
  • Cons:  More skiers than shredders, Mostly Jackson based, Not for anyone who wants to see urban jibs

Experience:   Probably one of my favorite shred flicks of all times, this classic set the standard at a impressionable time in my Jackson shred career. The soundtrack is great, and this movie pretty much coins the real reasons many of us will never leave this place. Miller has a real passion for what he does, and this shines through in every segment. This is a must own for the soul shredders out there-
"One for the Soul Shredder" 5/24/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Volcom 9191 Snowboard DVD
  • Pros:  A film that makes you want to ride, Riding style, Soundtrack
  • Cons:  Length of film, Price- you are almost paying a dollar per minute, More footage of other riders would have been nice

Experience:   The Volcolm boys certainly know how to shred. I was a huge fan of this flick cause it reminds me of how fun it is to snowboard. That was a huge draw personally, how playful slashes, cut-backs, and butters were abundant through the duration of the footage, and there wasn't over serious sessions involving any one aspect of snowboarding. Despite it's short length, or perhaps because of it, the editing excluded redundancy, and I walked away with a big smile on my face.
"Good deal, ok Headphones" 5/22/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Skullcandy Icon 2 Stereo Headphones
  • Pros:  Cheap, Steezy, Survived being in my backpack
  • Cons:  Don't stay put on your head, Ear pieces don't fit great, Sound is....meh

Experience:   I second the thought- you get what you pay for. For being a cheap headphone set, they are pretty rad looking though and mine have held up to some abuse. However, they don't fit my head great- more often than not I wear them around my neck. The sound quality is again what you pay for, and I wish there was a volume control on the cord so I wouldn't have to rip my iPod out of it's case every time I wanted to make an adjustment. However, when funds are tight they do the job.
"A Must-Have for the Chica Rippers" 5/22/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Anon Majestic Painted Goggles Women's
  • Pros:  Great fit, Good color selection, Easy to find replacement lens
  • Cons:  A popular goggle, Mirrored lens tends to scratch easier, Bit on the pricey side

Experience:   Stoked on these goggles. The not to wide frame fits my face nicely without looking bulky. Most of the time I ride in a beanie, but they also work great with my helmet. I have had to replace the mirrored lens, but the replacement lens foe this goggle was pretty easy to track down. The only negative that really comes to mind is that this was a really popular goggle, so don't expect to be the only person on the hill with them. However, they were selling well for a reason, and I love owning mine.
"Rad socks." 5/20/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Scout Socks e
  • Pros:  Cushy, Doesn't bunch, Cool colors
  • Cons:  Showing wear after a season, Would be nice if they cost five dollars, Can't really think of another negative
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  S
  • Fits Like:  S
  • Description:  Snug, comfy, and doesn't bunch

Experience:   I wish I had ten more pairs of these socks. They are everything a shred sock should be- warm, comfortable, and trendy as a sock can be. I have had over 50 days on mine thus far and they have held up as well as anything probably could. These socks are a good purchase.
"Function and Steez" 5/19/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2011 Volcom Hoffman Insulated Snowboard Jacket Women's
  • Pros:  Unique coloring pattern, Flattering fit, Easy to care for
  • Cons:  Sleeves are on the short side, Side pockets have come open on occasion, Zipper can be sticky
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  XS
  • Fits Like:  XS
  • Description:  True to the bulky style of snowboard jackets but has flattering lines at the same time

Experience:   Love the colors and the fit of this jacket. The color pattern allows for the attractiveness of a black piece while holding enough color to photograph well and not be boring. Although I have only had this jacket for a month- it has held up through two weeklong sled shredding adventures- which are notorious for destroying outerwear. It has seen abuse and still looks as clean and as fitted as when I first purchased it. Although I love the fit of this piece- I didn't notice the slight shortness of the sleeves until I was out in the backcountry- where they kept riding up from my gloves and exposing my wrists. I would definitely recommend wearing mittens or gloves with a longer gator with this coat. The side zippers also came open once and I had to look down sometimes to zip the main zipper- but overall I recommend owning this jacket.
"Great from the get go but needs care for longevity" 5/19/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Sly Puffy Vest Women's
  • Pros:  Vibrant color, Flattering fit, Reasonable pricing
  • Cons:  Color fades slightly with time, Loses fit quickly if not maintained, Super hard to clean
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  S
  • Fits Like:  S
  • Description:  Flattering despite it's puffy function

Experience:   I have owned this vest for about a year. Loved it to start with in terms of fit and style- but keeping the vest in good shape has been a task. It develops weird buldges if it's crammed in small spaces, like backpacks. I always usually have to press it flat before I hang it up to store. Even normal use has caused it's color to fade and it's a half day project if you ever need to wash it. Without meticulous maintenance it gets frumpy looking. If you are willing to put the care into it- I recommend owning this vest- Otherwise- expect to get a month of wear out of it.
"Comfortable but Cold" 5/17/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Sapphire Snowboard Boots
  • Pros:  Comfortable after break-in, Tidy lace system, Easy to remove inner liners
  • Cons:  Thermic system is not effective, Battery cable for Thermic system has no storage, Long breakin time
  • Fit:  soft
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  6.5
  • Boot Size:  7

Experience:   I would like to start off by mentioning that I am an aggressive female rider who spends a lot of time in the backcountry. I am a freak of nature, however and have always required a softer flexing boot, contrary to the theory that more experienced riders need a stiffer setup. The break-in period for these boots was a long and rather uncomfortable process. However, now that they are I find them to be comfortable and have no problem spending a solid 10 or more hours in them- which I do more often than not being a big mountain line hunter who spends time in remote locations. I am impressed with the lace system- which ties down neatly and has thus never come out of place through my days of snowmobiling and even more importantly- walking through deep snow and or climbing steep pitches. Although I am happy with the overall feel and fit of this boot- I am truely disappointed with the Thermic system- which is why I purchased these boots to begin with. I unfortunately have extremely poor circulation, and have previously always crammed foot earners into my setup on colder days. Even while hiking- the Thermic system did not put out enough heat to keep me warm on a -10F day. The fact that you have to ride with the battery packs is also extremely annoying. I ended up giving up on the whole heated liner amenity and still shove heat packs into them on colder days. I do recommend the boot overall- but don't buy it for the heat function- and don't waste an extra 70 bucks on the battery packs to use it.
