Check out the skis, snowboards unveiled at SIA Snow Show in Denver

The recent SIA Snow Show in Denver, as always, did not disappoint when it came to overloading the senses with the latest skis and  snowboards. Frankly, it made us dizzy.

We shot photos of many of the colorful, cutting-edge skis and boards we saw (see them below), but we will leave it to the experts to tell you what they thought of this year’s crop.

And here’s a sampling of the colorful skis and boards we saw. It’s important to note: there are offered as a peek ahead to next season, not as an endorsement of one product or another. Enjoy!

Shaun White in the halfpipe? He’s ‘Beyond Reason’

Is there anyone better than Shaun White in the halfpipe? Nope. But the reason’s more than talent. This guy works HARD at being the best in the world.

The proof is in this video, made during a training session at Northstar at Tahoe in California during February and now released as part of Oakley’s “Beyond Reason” campaign. Watch as White, unable to land the alley-oop double rodeo three years before, returns to the trick and masters it.

In addition, here’s a great Q&A with White conducted by Alyssa Roenigk of ESPN.

Check out a great review of Toast 3N1 mittens by Shayboarder (They work with your smartphone!)

Our Toast 3N1 mittens just got a great review from Shayboarder, one of the most respected voices among snowboarders.

The Toast 3N1 includes, among other things, Swany’s famous Toaster construction, which allows you to zip open the mitt to reveal a (removable) fleece inner glove for better dexterity. Even better: that glove has our I_NDEX finger tip and thumb, which means it is touchscreen compatible, so you can operate your smartphone without removing your glove.

Highlights from Shayboarder’s review:

  • On its bright color patterns: “I like that instead of the simple black, they offer some brightness in the design.”
  • Durability: “I spent a lot of wet northwest days (she rode at Stevens Pass and Mt. Baker in Washington, Revelstoke in British Columbia) in these gloves and they held up to their end of the bargain.”
  • Last Thoughts: “The mittens are designed to be worn in varying temperatures and withstand some cold mountain days … Since my hands get warm easily, I can use the inner glove as my glove when my hands get too warm and keep the mittens in my pockets as spares. Last season was a really good one in the Northwest and these gloves were part of a lot of powder days. I liked that they could hold up in the cold wet conditions and I could use the inner glove to operate my cell phone or camera.”

Dew Tour will downsize, but that’s not all bad news

Organizers of the Dew Tour have announced a dramatic downsizing of its season — from six winter and summer events to just three.

Ironically, for those skiers and snowboarders who compete in the winter, the change may be welcome, given all the new FIS Olympic Qualifying events being added. But the news is not as good for summer athletes.
