…but they’ll certainly help my powder game. Say hello to my new Rossignol Sky 7’s!

Amplified with our new Carbon Alloy Matrix, the all-new SKY 7 HD is the ultimate fusion of lightweight backcountry innovation and progressive freeride performance. With noticeably more edge grip, stability, dampness, and drive, the new Sky 7 HD provides instinctive versatility and ease-of-use, while delivering groundbreaking, high-definition energy, mobility, and strength due to our unique new carbon and basalt weave. Combined with our patented Air Tip technology; Powder Turn Rocker profile; lightweight paulownia wood core construction; and versatile 98mm waist width, the new Sky 7 HD offers an ultra-lightweight blend of all-mountain versatility, effortless float, and accessible backcountry performance. No matter where the snow takes you, whether resort-based or backcountry bound – the future of freeride is here. 70% Powder / 30% All-Mountain

The equipment writers or PR folks in the skiing industry must work in golf for their summer jobs…

For a little while you may see a notice in your browser that says “site not secure” or something like that.  I’m converting the site to HTTPS (secure) versus HTTP.  It will take a while to convert all the internal links to HTTPS so you may see those notices.  Not to worry.  I don’t have your credit card information!

This video of a golfer attempting to hit a shot on ice and falling in reminds me that it’s time to power up my new heated gloves by Volt.

The annual Christmas Classic golf tournament is coming up, and I’m going to need some heat on the hands. These heated gloves look to be the ticket!
Volt Heated Gloves

I’m charging now (photo below) and will test them out in the frozen tundra here in northern Utah shortly.

Below is the first hole at one of my home courses. Looks like the Volt gloves will be a great addition to the golf bag!

Stay tuned. I’ll be reviewing the Volt heated gloves soon.
