Warren Miller’s Wintervention

A few weeks ago we saw the 61st Warren Miller movie: Wintervention. I very much enjoyed watching all the skiing and snowboarding scenes, but I thought the story –  winter/ski addiction – was rather lame.

My favorite part of the movie though was the Southern Utah scene with Zach Crist. Skiing and snowboarding in that kind of terrain looks absolutely phenomenal. Below a short clip from that scene to get you amped up for the season. Enjoy!

Comfortable Women’s Ski Boots – Rossignol Electra Pro

I’ve considered myself a snowboarder for the last 15 years.  When I started working at a ski resort last year only to be informed that I would not only be teaching snowboarding but skiing as well; I was a little hesitant to trade out my cushy snowboard boots for rigid plastic ski boots.

I endured several weeks of gnarly blisters and moleskin before I decided there must be a better way. That’s when I came across my Rossignol Electra Pro boots.
