Apologies are in order. The blogging world is an interesting one and it requires inspiration and energy. I have always wanted to keep this blog unique and casual, something I do as it happens and never force the issue. Lately my life has been rather hectic and full and I have been skiing. Yet I have been skiing for myself, and not sharing my adventures. Not that there have not been any, just that I have kept them to myself. Secrets of sorts I guess.
But today we unveiled the STOKE ski, a Dynafit signature Greg Hill ski. Obviously its super exciting to have my own ski but more exciting was to witness people having a great time on this ski. Yesterday 10 odd people clipped in and had a great time skiing Snowbird on Dynafits newest ski. And today 50+ people tested them out at Snowbasin. They were Stoked. Forgive the over use of SToke, but let's admit that Revelstoke is pretty damn awesome and that there is a lot of energy surrounding the adventures that happen in our mountains.
The ski is an all around ruler, it is 106 in the waist, 130 tip and 120 in the tail. Its light and powerful, made for climbing huge vertical and tearing up the descent. It weighs somewhere around 1500 grams and comes in 182, 173 and 164. Nothing huge for the big boys but something smaller for the women shredders out there.
I have to admit I have never dreamed of having a signature ski, but its pretty cool to have one. The birth of the ski happened on Mt-Blanc last year and has progressed to a limited release for this year.
Its pretty awesome.
I am in Utah right now and I have some more news I have to share but I will wait till the first video is ready. Yes, I will continue with my video making, I have simply pulled back to re-inspire and I will hopefully come back stronger than ever.
All for now, but I promise I will jump back into this and keep psyching people up and keeping the Backcountry Stoke alive.
