SIA 2013 On-Snow Demo: Day 1

06 Feb, 2013


After a couple days of SIA, it was time to stop checking out the gear and try it on the slopes at Winter Park. I carpooled out for the day with the girls so we could check out gear and lap the mountain for the day. Despite some cold on-snow’s in previous years, this year delivered with a fun day with warmer temps and good conditions. Stay tuned, all the boards below will be reviewed on Shayboarder.com over the next couple weeks.

I ended up riding the Lib Tech Trice Pro with Roxy Torah Bright bindings, Signal Jake OE with Signal/Flux collab bindings, Capita Ultrafear FK with Union Force bindings, Slash Paxson with NOW bindings, Rome Gold with Rome Madison Boss bindings, Ride Hellcat with Ride DVA bindings. I also tried out the Smith and Von Zipper goggles.

I carpooled out with Emily Blewitt and Michelle Zeller for the day and we definitely got in our laps. Probably the funniest moment was Emily taking out a board with the wrong stance which was too wide for her…the end result was a really funny run.
