We spent the last two winters partnering with our two plankin’ friends over at Freeskier Magazine to put the coming seasons gear to the test out in the field. With a cat full of athletes we set out for four days in the Colorado backcountry capturing images of our raucous crew pushing the limits in the latest gear offersing for brands such as Armada, Patagonia, and Elevenate. Less than ideal weather provided plenty of time to get creative, stay warm and amuse each other. Final imagery was featured in the annual BUYERS GUIDE print issue released each fall by Freeskier. Despite being the only snowboarder amongst twelve skiers - harassment was minimal.
