Ready for the Tuckerman Inferno? Really? Really?

Ready for some REAL competition to end your season? If you live in New Hampshire, get ready for the Tuckerman Inferno Pentathlon April 15-17 at Tuckerman Ravine, on the eastern slopes of Mount Washington. Writer Dave Irons describes this tremendously challenging event (here’s Dave’s complete story in The Sun Journal):

“This five-leg race starts at Storyland with an 8.3-mile run, followed by a six-mile white water kayak leg, 18 miles by bike, a three-mile hike into Tuckerman and a one-mile ski race to the finish. The Tuckerman/Tuckerwoman competition is for the real iron athletes, one racer, all five events. This is open to 20 of each sex. There will be 30 teams of five, with at least one of the opposite sex required. Tuckerwoman teams of five will be five women. The Dynamic Duo category is for two people, each performing at least one event.”

Still interested? Then visit the official site for registration information and much more, including how you can help support preservation of Tuckerman Ravine. (The Inferno is a fundraiser for the organization.)

We’re proud to be one of the sponsors of this great event, but don’t look for us out there competing!


The Ski Diva says “Swany Gloves are No. 1”

The women at The like us, they really like us! And we couldn’t be more grateful. The influential online community for women skiers recently asked its nearly 3,000 members to share their favorite gear, resorts, apparel and more for The Ski Diva’s first Season’s Best Awards. We’re proud (but not surprised) that they selected Swany as “Favorite Glove/Mitten.” Learn more about the awards and who else made this great list at

Watch moe and more from snoe.down 2011

So, we had a BLAST last weekend at snoe.down at Killington Resort. Got to do some skiing (and riding, there’s more than one of us, you know). But we also heard a ton of great music, especially from the fantastic jam band moe. We liked the idea of listening to moe so much, Swany decided to sponsor the band’s free concert on Saturday afternoon at the mountain. What was it like? Glad you asked. Watch this video that includes a look at the free show, one of moe’s two night-time concerts and even an interview with drummer Vinnie Amico.
