Video Report: U.S. Ski Mountaineering Championships in Jackson Hole

Jan. 12th 2011

What is it about skiing…

What is it about skiing that drives us waaaay beyond that which would normally qualify as Best Practice, and what conventional wisdom would call reasonable.

We could all just rock comfy Bogner one-pieces while stem christie-ing perfect corduroy and act, like, civilized. But, no. That would be far too easy. Skiing’s siren song dares us to enter into some of the most dangerous environments and unreasonable situations imaginable…in skin suits. And we accept, willingly. In fact, we pay money for it.

It’s always fun to give away outdoor gear, and we’re psyched to stoke out of a few of our loyal SCARPA customers this week, following a few contests we ran during the launch of our new SCARPA North America web site last and the early part of this month.

Congrats to Byron Murray, who won the review portion of the contest for his review on the SCARPA site of the Techno rock shoes. He earns a $150 credit for product with SCARPA.
