Although the winter is slowly making itself know here in the Wasatch (60 degrees and sunny in December seems more like mountain biking weather) it has been great to get out and make some early season turns at Alta Ski Area.
It is even more of a nice start when you land a cover in a publication highlighting your last seasons hard work. I couldn’t be anymore stoked to see this image taken by photographer Adam Barker on the front of the Mountain Collective. Be sure to grab one off the news stands today!
I have been playing for a few years now with a couple different wing suits; S-Fly Expert, Phantom 2, Vampire, and some others, but recently I acquired a Squirrel Colugo and I couldn’t be more stoked on it!
Mike Steen and Matt Gerdes have been busting their butts to make an amazing “do all” suit, and they have succeeded to do so. Can’t wait to get this thing to Europe for some serious flying. Until then, airplanes, helis and hot air balloons will have to do!
Yes the suits are constructed with care and are top notch and the flights are amazing, but get this, they even have FiveTen Stealth Rubber soles! Applause Squirrel!
The boys at Squirrel just dropped the video for their new suit, the Aura. Check it out.
Getting back on the mountain bike has been so rewarding this summer, minus the fact that it has been on e the hottest summers on record here in Utah. With that said, I am counting down the days till autumn, and cannot wait for the cooler weather.
Until then, I will be “sweatin’ to the oldies” and hammering out miles on the amazing Utah XC, DH and road biking rides in the SLC area. Except for the road spinning miles, the FiveTen Minnaar’s are my go-to shoe weapon of choice, and the most badass shoe to have on your feet for XC and DH! Thanks again 5.10!
Warm weather and the end of winter sport travels and shenanigans means it’s time to dust of the parachutes, wingsuits and gravity toys. I cannot express how great it feels to get back into the air. Things are lining up great for an amazing summer!
For the past year or so my passion for FXR’s grew insanely out of control, but was tamed by their high price and rareness. It was always a pipe dream of mine to own a early 1990’s FXRT or FXRP, but with the recent popularity increase in these nearly extinct machines, I never thought I would ever in a million years for under $10k. Well, my assumptions were wrong, and one fell into my lap last fall and went straight into the garage for a make over.
