“In the winter it gets dark in the Northwest pretty early, so some of the best skiing takes place at night. After work, I like to head to the slopes and do some night skiing, and though courses are lit, it’s always nice to have some extra light to manage your runs.”
“Investing in a solid pair of waterproof and warm gloves is a must for any winter sports enthusiast. Take good care of these and they’ll last you a lifetime.”
“There’s nothing like being able to re-live a legendary run over and over again, even in the warmth of your house or the dead of summer. Helmet mounted HD cameras are at the pinnacle of their performance right now, and this one is great because its' case is heavily shock absorbent and waterproof.”
“Some people ski, some people board, but either way I love to support local brands. Lib Tech was started in the Seattle area in the ’80s and their boards are well known for their technical design. In addition, the company has always been committed to environmental sustainability and uses environmentally friendly materials in their production.”
