Off-Season with T-Bar Films

With summer turning to fall and winter on the horizon, the off-season is almost behind us. The next month or two offer a chance to savor the last warmth of the sun and anticipate the ski days to come. Here's a short film that pays tribute to the off-season from T-Bar Films, an independent media cooperative founded by brothers Elliot and Tyler Wilkinson-Ray - the same guys who brought us United We Ski and Vasu Sojitra: Out On A Limb. Self-described as "documenting the human side of ski culture," T-Bar Films have their sights set on producing a new feature-length ski film this winter, and we are looking forward to it. THE OFFSEASON from T-Bar Films on Vimeo.

Roller Ski Bags

A minimalist at heart, I have travelled for many years with the most basic of ski bags for air travel; a single zip bag with shoulder strap. I’ve looked on with envy at those with roller ski bags as they effortlessly negotiate the airport and car rental counters but have have never bought in, until recently, and I’ll never look… Read More

Rocker Ski Racks

Skis have a way of cluttering your garage, hallway, closet or wherever it is you happen to store them, especially if you are like me and have multiple – make that too many – pairs. We all know what happens when you simply lean your skis against the nearest available wall space – if they don’t fall over right away, they… Read More

Free The Powder leather Ski gloves

Leather Ski Gloves

Free the Powder Short Cuff Glove $60 www.freethepowder.com I love leather ski gloves; some might even say I have a leather glove fetish. Kind of like socks, gloves are easy to collect and justify one more pair without really rattling the budget too much. Of course, gloves can be really expensive. I remember telling my mother about my first pair… Read More

Picky Bars - Energy Bars

Picky Bars – Energy Bar

My relationship with energy bars could be described as a love / hate situation. I eat ’em when I have to and appreciate their energy to weight ratio when in the backcountry. But after decades of outdoor adventure, I’ve eaten every bar on the market and I’m picky about what I’ll use. I’m also always on the search for a new… Read More
