The outdoor gear company founded in 1938 is supplying the uniforms to several Olympic teams including the Canadian mogul and freestyle ski teams. The mogul team’s uniform is exclusive and not available to the public. The half pipe and … More »

RYAN REPORT – Dress like an Olympian

If you’ve watched any Olympic skiing or snowboarding you’ve seen Oakley’s limited edition goggles. They just about fly off the snow and right out of the screen. Every Oakley athlete at the games is wearing the distinctive bright orange and yellow frames. The colour scheme carries over to shades and glasses on the speed skating … More »

RYAN REPORT – Highlights from the snow show

Over four days at the end of January the ski industry unveiled the future of skiing.

Once the note taking hand cramps wore off a few wicked looking products … More »

RYAN REPORT – Cool backcountry gear for next year

Backcountry is still hot. At last week’s Outdoor Retailer Snow Show backcountry gear continued to dominate innovation in the ski industry. The annual gear show in Denver was dominated by boots with tech binding pins at the toe and heel, lightweight shells and weight loss focused on earning turns. Through it all a few products … More »

RYAN REPORT – Bollé Nova II

With a cloud hanging out around mid-mountain, snow pounding down, humidity near 100 percent and the temperature just below freezing the conditions last week at Mount Washington Alpine Resort were challenging for skiers and perfect for testing goggles. In these conditions just thinking about a foggy lens and it happens. It was into this torture … More »

RYAN REPORT – Too much snow closes Mount Washington

Apparently it can snow too much. Just ask Mount Washington Alpine Resort where 80 centimetres overnight on Saturday, January 20 made it impossible for the mountain to open on Sunday. Already the week before had been a good one at the Vancouver Island resort; their snow base had doubled in six days. Saturday dawned benignly, … More »

RYAN REPORT – Scary Chairlift Rides

I think ski lifts are one of the world’s great inventions. Ninety nine percent of the time they whisk us to the top without drama. But every now and then things go wrong. Power outages, mechanical problems, howling winds: they’ve all conspired to turn just another chairlift ride into one I wish I’d never taken. … More »
