Puffin Blanket nemoMake Yourself Comfortable
– The Nemo Puffin Blanket is one of those simple ideas that adds such a wonderful comfort level to life you will wonder how you managed so long without one. In its most basic description the Nemo Puffin Blanket is a synthetic blanket or Nemo Puffin Blanketquilt. But when you picture yourself using the Puffin the possibilities are limitless. Maybe in the back of the pickup truck at night watching a meteor shower, maybe snuggled up near a campfire on the beach, or dozing in the hammock on a cool Fall day… The Nemo Puffin Blanket is right up there on the Ski Haus employee’s must have list.
One of the cool features of this blanket is it has a place to tuck in your toes if you like. With a few well placed buttons you can fold the end up a make a cozy pocket for your feet. The outer shell of the blanket is a ripstop fabric that has a very soft feel and it is treated with a DWR so any accidental spills are not a worry. Inside the Puffin is Nemo’s Stratofiber insulation. A synthetic that has good loft, packs nicely, and is not heavy or suffocating like some synthetics can feel. The Nemo Puffin Blanket comes with a nice zippered pouch that makes storing or traveling with your blanket easy.

Salomon rc carbon classic bootBig Performance in a Small Package

– The Salomon RC Carbon Classic boot packs a lot of comfort and performance in a very small and light package… without paying the top-of-the-line price. Did I mention the famous Salomon fit? These boots snug your foot nicely without feeling minimalistic. They ski and feel light but offer lots of stability on our narrow skis. They pack a lot of control down high speed corners and the flex is friendly. You’ll have a ton of fun classic skiing around the track with the Salomon RC Carbon Classic Boot.

Salomon classic bootOne of the really nice features of the RC Carbon is the adjustable heel strap, the white spoiler located just behind the achilles, and the small adjustment window so you can make subtle adjustments on the strap without guessing. The adjustable heel strap won’t make a boot that is too big fit correctly. It will make the right sized boot feel even better. Locking down your heel, feeling the control of a snug heel pocket inspires confidence on your classic skis. These skis are narrow enough without your boot making you feel even less stable.

When you slip into these boots it feel like a vacuum fit. You snug your foot into a gusset-type liner that wraps around your foot very comfortably and the top of the liner acts a gaiter keeping fresh fallen snow out of the tops of your boots. The speed laces inside are quick and easy and the the lace slider holds the tension of the lace all day long. There is a soft plastic plate that the speed lace wraps over your instep locking your foot in place even more!

The Salomon Pilot sole is nice too. Under the foot you’ll notice what looks like aggressive tread. These are the buttress wings that stiffen the sole torsionaly and send power into the binding’s guide ridge. When you’re in your bindings the RS 17 sole (the location of the toe bar is 17mm behind the front of the boot) is the perfect flex location for power transmission, control, and responsiveness. Did I mention I like these boots?

The last thing I really like about the Salomon RC Carbon Classic boot is the all day comfort they provide. Whether I’m out for a few quick laps or a marathon, I have easy comfort in these boots that doesn’t sacrifice ski-ability.

Ultracraft splitJones Snowboards builds a Legend

– We can all think of a board or two we’ve had over the years and wish we’d never parted with… The Jones Ultracraft is destined to be just such a board. Of course, if you get one now you can live regret-free and simply keep it for life!

Jones Ulta split snowboardBased on the legendary Jones Hovercraft, the Ultracraft features a timeless pow-surfing shape that is reminiscent of the early days of snowboarding… but the technology behind this board is anything but old school. The Ultracraft features the same trim and powerful shape as the Hovercraft, but it’s built using a carbon topsheet, carbon core inserts, and Jones’ Ultra Construction technology. Ultra Construction trims away grams by eliminating excess materials and reduces overall weight by nearly a pound compared to the Hovercraft Split. Unlike traditional splitboards that are designed around a solid board platform then sliced down the middle, the Ultracraft is also one of the first splitboards produced as two individual “skis” that are later transformed into a solid board. The capability of the Ultracraft is further confirmed by the fact that it’s Jeremy Jones’ go-to splitboard… You might recognize it from every scene in the new Teton Gravity Research (TGR) film, ‘Higher’.

If challenged to pick my favorite snowboard at the ‘Haus, the Ultracraft Split would have it hands down. A surfboard for the snow, ultralight backcountry access, a timeless shape, and capable of riding confidently in all conditions… this is the board that earns a spot in your lifetime quiver.

2015 Jones Ultracraft Split ($1199)… In stock now at the ‘Haus!

rock climbing Indian Creek“STEAK AND EGGS!”

– The ever fabled “Creeksgiving” is an event known in the climbing community as a Thanksgiving celebration held annually among the infamous Wingate Sandstone splitters of Indian Creek. The tradition has been going on for many years, drawing in dirtbags from all over the country to areas like the Superbowl, The Creek Pasture, and the Bridger Jack campgrounds for a Thanksgiving weekend full of sending splitters, food, and holiday festivities.

rock climbing Indian CreekSadly, this celebration was missed due to prior obligations, work and the Steamboat Ski area opening Thanksgiving Day, duties at the Ski Haus were calling. Fortunately, by the grace of mud season, I was able to escape the snowy confines of the Yampa Valley and basque in the red sand and blue skies of the Beehive State. The idea of getting out for a few days before ski season commenced was the product of friend, partner, and North Routt educator Dan Kohler.

Mr. Kohler had been hounding me since September about going down to the Creek over his Thanksgiving break to squeak in another multi-day climbing holiday. I had been pessimistic about my chances of going. When I was told I could get the days off from work I pulled my life savings together (loose change in an old coffee can) and realized I had enough for gas, beer, tape, and food for five days. The stoke was instantly cranked up to 11! Since we missed “Creeksgiving” our trip adapted the name to “Preksgiving.” Once it was set that Creek climbing was to be had, Ski Haus shop technician extraordinaire and fellow long hair, Kellen Johnson, was down to skip out on fixing damaged ski bases and get in some rock climbing before the ski season. Thanks to Gary for letting homeboy out of the shop for a few days of climbing bliss.

Do you ever have “Murphy’s Law” trips? Anything that can go wrong does? Things that you never could expect to go wrong seem to come about and wrench your plans? This was not that trip! The synthesis of food, firewood, booze, and climbing stoke culminated the perfect trip. Dan and myself made our way out of Steamboat early Saturday morning, just missing the powder dumping that hit the Yampa Valley that very day. The drive was clear and casual, the scenery ever changing from snow capped mountains to dusty high desert and into the deep red of canyon country.

Indian Creek CampingAfter arriving and snagging a stellar setup at lucky site #7 in the Creek Pasture campground, we were looking to fine-tune our hand jams at the Supercrack Buttress. Nothing was more comforting to be hundreds of miles away from home and see (former) Steamboat resident, climbing instructor and Dewy Decimal jocky, Jackie K.’s bright happy face meandering down the trail after crushing out some of the most classic climbs in the Creek. Seeing her randomly down in the Creek helped us crank up the stoke-meter and was indicative of how the stars were aligning for the perfect trip.

Upon arriving back at site #7, we were joined by the Alaskan Guide duo of Kellen and Andy for food, brews and fire. It is important to mention this was Andy’s first trip to the desert southwest. Being a Minnesota native that winters in Steamboat and summers in Alaska, he was more adapted to the flora of the mountain scape and dense woodland forrests. He took to this alien landscape quite nicely. The feeling you get when you arrive in canyon country for the first time is memorable. Additionally, since Andy was on the trip to experience the desert for the first time, he was not as hyper focused on climbing, as Kellen, Dan and myself were.

The next few days of climbing were sublime. Everyday someone in our posse discovered a new area in the Creek while another would be familiar and give the grand tour of each; Supercrack Buttress, Donlley Canyon, Way Rambo, Scarface Wall and Blue Gramma Crag. We found ourselves taking down moderate classics such as Generic Crack, Wavy Gravy and Blue Sun. We were in yellow camalot paradise – perfect hands for days! The company of other parties was pleasant, with the exception of one large group from a large southern university that seemed to overrun crags and have marginal climbers etiquette, as noted by about every other party we ran into. It was great to run into another Andy, and his crew from the front range, who were finishing up their 4 day offwidth suffer fest up at Way Rambo wall. With the expectation of sending the sexy Serrator Crack, he was roped in to help us finish thrutching up Dessire, a pleasant 5 inch wide suffer-fest. The overall experience was great, no attitudes, no egos, just a bunch of dirtbags working together towards a common goal – sending that brutal fatty.

My personal highlight of the trip was getting to send Generic Crack with the last bits of sunlight, and warmth, remaining for the day. This is a climb that will make any crack climber go from six to midnight and for being such a heavily traveled trade route, the rock was still gritty and grippy, not polished by tens of thousands of hands and climbing shoes as I expected.

This trip was a complete bonus to my climbing season, with the perfect company, amazing weather, immaculate cracks, nothing was left to be desired besides more daylight. Now it’s time to bundle up for powder and ice; this trip will become experiences and memories I always cherish and value deeply. Once the lifts stop running and I save enough money this winter, I hope to find myself long term dirt bagging in the heart of canyon country.

Smartwool hoodySmart Design from Smartwool

– In the winter I find myself needing the Smartwool Divide Hoody. A lot. This jacket is perfect for an cross country ski session or an early morning run down the dirt road. I like it for the the days that are not too cold or wet but when I’m needing core warmth and a jacket that will breath well after I start warming up.

More times than not I reach for the Smartwool SmartLoft Divide Hoody. Smartwool uses their proprietary wool insulation (SmartLoft) in the front of this hoody while leaving the sides and small back panels insulation free. In these areas Smartwool uses HyFi, a blend of their PHd fabric blended with elastain for ultimate stretch and breathability. The outer shell material of the Smartwool Divide Hoody is treated with a DWR and is a light and very soft nylon fabric. This all helps for coming back down the hill. The material is an effective wind barrier that protects you from the cold sneaking in. The Hoody is the perfect blend of warmth for the core with breathability off the back.

I can also wear the Divide Hoody under my snowboarding shell as my mid-layer and itrs just the right weight. The best part is that it has a great casual style for kicking around town.

Here are the details:

  • Semi-Form Fit
  • Lightest weight SmartLoft wool insulation provides ultimate thermoregulation even when wet
  • Gender-specific placement of SmartLoft® insulation, HyFi knit panels, and wind resistant nylon provides breathability and protection from the elements during high aerobic activity in cold weather
  • DWR finish
  • Strategically placed Merino lining manages sweat and is antimicrobial
  • Partially insulated performance fit hood for use under a helmet
  • Adjustible cordlock at waist

Burton HitchikerSplitboard-Specific Binding Upgrade

– The new Burton Hitchhiker binding showcases one of the simplest yet most appreciated improvements we’ve seen in splitboard-specific bindings in nearly 10 years… the elimination of “the pin”. If you’re a veteran splitboarder, then you know what I’m talking about… If you’re new to the sport, then you started at a great time!

Burton Hitchhiker bindingBurton Hitchiker BindingThe Voile Puck Interface is tried and true, but until the debut of Spark R&D’s Tesla System last season, a pin was required to make the connection on both ride mode and tour mode. The pin certainly did its job, but was less than user friendly in anything resembling winter weather.  In a stroke of genius, Spark R&D re-engineered the base-plate of the binding and eliminated the pin altogether. Tesla Technology (as they call it) features a “Snap Ramp” to replace the antiquated pin design. This hinged toe ramp acts as a “gate” to create the secure connection in both ride and tour-modes. The Burton Hitchhiker is a collaboration with Spark R&D, and therefore has the benefit of this much improved design.

Splitboarding is one of the best examples of how snowboards have evolved to improve access to the winter playground. While splitboards have been around for more than 15 years, the recent surge in popularity has inspired dramatic improvements to the equipment being offered by some of the best snowboard manufacturers in the world. While the boards that are available today are infinitely better than those available just a few years ago, I still believe the most dramatic upgrade you can make to your splitboard setup is a splitboard-specific binding.

We stock the Burton Hitchhiker, Spark R&D AfterBurner, and Spark R&D Magneto Bindings as well as everything else you could possibly want or need for your Splitboarding adventure. The ‘Haus is also your source for splitboard rentals. We have the new 2015 Jones Solution, Jones Women’s Solution, Burton Landlord Split, and Burton Anti-Social Splitboards mounted up with the new Spark R&D Magneto Bindings. Bottom line? Get to the ‘Haus, then get out and ride!

Soles and SuperfeetSoles and Superfeet Insoles

– What’s the easy way to make your feet feel good? Try an after market insole. After market insoles are not only for hiking boots and ski boots. Upgrading your insoles is a great way to get a custom fit on any footwear. Insoles offer support for walking or standing all day and can improve foot problems plus relieve joint and back pain. Insoles may also help with older shoes that have stretched or packed out. This is an easy wat to soak up extra volume inside your shoes and to fill in unwanted space.

Ski Haus offers Super Feet which provide a substantial heal cup to help seat the foot in the shoes, as well as Sole foot beds which can be heat molded in your oven at home.

The green Superfeet features the widest and deepest heel cup that offers maximum support and can help with natural shock absorption. It also has the most shape to help stabilize and support the foot, which can help reduce stress on feet, ankles and knees.

The blue Sperfeet has less arch support but still helps position the heel to naturally absorb impact and support the foot. Both insoles have a natural coating that inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria.

Another popular choice of insole that Ski Haus sells (and our staff uses) are Soles insoles. Soles insoles are heat mouldable. Simply pop them in your home oven and once the indicator has turned color place them in your footwear and let the insole cool and shape around your foot. This custom fit gives you the perfect amount of support your foot is looking for. Not too much or not enough… just right. The gray Sole will take up less volume inside your footwear while the red insole is a little thicker and will soak up more volume inside your shoes.

We find both Soles and Superfeet are great choices for the perfect fit in any footwear including ski boots, bike shoes, hiking boots, running shoes, around town shoes and…

Superfeet – $39.95
Soles – $44.95

Rossi Evo OTPopular Versatility

– The Rossignol Evo OT Ski is very popular this season. This ski appeals to the skier who is looking for one pair of boots and one pair of skis to handle a wide range of snow conditions. Often, Ski Haus has customers looking for a ski they can take up to Rabbit Ears Pass to tour the backcountry but they also want the ski to be able to fit into the classic tracks at a touring center. Here is a great choice.

Rossignol xc bootsYou may not want to be the first skier up on the pass to break trail with these skis but it can be done. Size these skis a bit shorter than traditional sizing. The skis come in small, medium, large, and extra large lengths. The centimeter lengths of the skis are 165, 175, 185, and 195. The dimensions of the ski are 64.52.60. Skinny enough to fit in the track and wide enough to have fun up the blue diamond trails on the pass.

We like to match this ski with the Rossignol X-5 OT boot for men and the x-5 OT FW boot for women. The boot is light enough that it won’t feel clunky at the track like BC boots can and it has enough “stout” to be good up on the pass.

When we sell packages like this there are qualifiers. You need to know both “heads” side and “tails” side of the coin. While you can ski this at a touring center it won’t feel as light or fluid as a designed in-track classic ski will. Since this ski is designed to be skied a little shorter it won’t have hero glide (also include the fact that it is a no-kick-wax ski). But if your goal is fun with dual-purpose ski then you’re still in the ballpark with this ski.

The days you take this ski up to pass you may not want to be up there breaking trail first thing. Maybe get up there at the crack of 10 am or 11 am. Let someone else do the trail breaking and this ski will be very nice and very light feeling. This ski will favor touring and mileage over downhills and turning but this is still a great ski to go out and explore. You can break trail with this ski but expect to sink into the pow a little further (again the compact sizing and narrowness of the ski are the contributing factors… but to ski this at a touring center it can’t be too wide… get it? Compromise).

We try our best to let our cross country customers know the performance attributes of every ski or boot they purchase. You need to know the both the plus side and the minus side.

Ultimately, we really like this ski/boot combo. This package lets you pretty much ski any day and anywhere you want this winter!

Rossignol Evo OT Ski – $209.95
Rossignol X-5 OT Boot – $129.95
