Harding knife from Helle
Craftmanship since 1932

– The Helle Harding knife is one of the staff’s most favorite items in the store – to use – and to just look at! The handmade Norwegian knife exudes craftsmanship. One look and you know this is a well made product even if you knew nothing of the process or the company that made it.

The company that did make the Harding is Helle from Norway. They have been making knives since 1932. The factory is just a little ways from the farm of Steinar and Sigmund Helle began their knife business over 70 years ago. While other knife manufacturers have embraced hands-off automatic production this is not true of Helle. Helle continues to produce knives with the sole emphasis on quality, tradition, and craftsmanship. Every Helle knife is a heritage knife. These knives can be passed down from generation to generation. They are comfortable in the hand, balanced, and incredibly durable.

A Helle knife goes through up to 45 different manual operations before it is finally checked and packaged.

Here are a few highlight features of the Helle Harding:

  • A handmade handle using Curly Birch, American Walnut, and leather
  • Triple layered laminated stainless steel blade
  • Each knife includes a custom full grain leather sheath
  • Full tang blades
  • Dimensions: Drop point blade 100 mm / 3.94 inches Handle 110 mm / 4.33 inches
  • Weight: 5.0 oz total / 3.5 oz knife only

We think the Helle Harding would be a nice treat to yourself. Or it makes a great gift for Christmas or for Dad or a Christmas gift for Dad!

$149.00

Burton Game Changer

The new Burton Landlord is the first splitboard to offer infinite stance adjustability by rethinking the way we connect to the board. Here at the ‘Haus, we love innovation that makes backcountry access more enjoyable, and we have to applaud Burton for figuring out a way to alleviate one of the lingering issues that comes from a snowboard that splits down the middle: a lack of stance options. Burton has been designing & building splitboards for nearly 15 years, and while they have helped to evolve the sport into what we know today, their latest offering is an absolute game changer.

Voile mounting plate for splitboardRather than using traditional inserts to mount the ride-mode interface, Burton took their Channel Technology (which they’ve been using in their traditional boards for nearly a decade) and adapted it to their latest splitboards. Because the specially designed Voile Pucks can now be adjusted along the Split Channel instead of being mounted to fixed inserts, you have the ability to fine-tune your stance width and angles without restriction. Not only does this make the initial set-up much easier, but it also gives you the opportunity to make adjustments in the field… a legitimate first for splitboards.

bindings for splitboardsThe benefits of the Channel found on Burton’s traditional decks also translates to their new Split version… a more natural flex even underfoot. In other words, a binding mounted using the Channel does not create a “dead spot” on the board the same way a binding mounted to traditional inserts can. The Channel allows the board to flex the way it was designed to without being inhibited by the binding… a benefit that any snowboarder will appreciate every time they ride.

We have the new Burton Landlord Split ($799) and the women’s Anti-Social Split ($749), both featuring the Split Channel, in stock now. We will also have these revolutionary splitboards available to demo this winter. If you’re looking to access the backcountry with a perfectly dialed splitboard, we’ve got ya covered! See you at the ‘Haus.

– The other day I was able to get out climbing with two of my favorite people in the world, Patrick and Kevin. We decided on climbing up at the Domes because nothing beats the Sarvis Creek Wilderness area on a crisp clear September afternoon. The contrast of the cloudless Colorado blue sky to the deep green coniferous forest, splashed with giant stands of Autumn’s golden aspens leaves something for a Bob Ross-esq imagination.

steamboat springs colorado rock climbingOur initial intention was to give a classic 3 pitch 5.9  Fat Lip a go but we met up with old friends and local hobby farmers, Dalton Reed and Brittany LaTender, our sights changed as Dalton mentioned some exploratory climbing that looked like some quality crack systems. Our two parties climbed adjacent to one another but lacked visual contact for the first few hundred feet of climbing. As Kevin approached the top of an interesting slabby rope-stretching first pitch, he lusted over what lay above; what looked like a giant 5 foot roof to an overhanging wide dihedral. But as Dalton reached the top of his pitch, it conveniently put him just below this spectacular looking wide crack. After he snatched this pitch from us, we were able to watch him effortlessly ascend this beautiful line.

Pat led the 2nd pitch to the left of Dalton and Brittany. His pitch had a little bit of everything climbing wise including an abundance of dirt and moss. After some minor excavating for protection placements, the gear was bomber. This took us up to an enormous party ledge roughly 15 feet deep and about 40 feet wide about 250 feet off the deck. I finished the climb with a mellow rock-aineering traverse that lead me to the final few moves of Fat Lips slabby top out for what we are calling the first ascent of Gold Tooth, a new moderate route up the Sarvis Creek Dome.

The day would end with having explored something new with great friends, non stop laughs, and the satisfaction of basking in all the glory of Autumn in the Yampa Valley.

P.S. Don’t forget the Ski Haus Super Sale this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Ocotober 10, 11, 12. It doesn’t happen often but you’ll find rock gear on sale for three days only!

Early season cross country skiingMy Kind of Nordic Conditioning

– I can see winter on the horizon and I’ve prepared my body for the upcoming Nordic ski season with some solid physical and mental conditioning. I’ve done all I can do at this point to be physically fit and ready to tear up the track on my skate and classic skis. Part of my mental conditioning is picturing myself pounding up the hills barely out of breath and not loosing any momentum of pace. Fast on the flats and even faster up the punishing hills. I bet I can ski downhill corners and hold my line exactly where I left off last winter. Solid. And fearless.

And then there is reality.

I have not learned anything over my umpteen years as a Nordic skier. I still pretend that fixing fence, running my chainsaw and hoisting logs and pine rounds suffices as some kind of dryland training regimen. I delude myself that countless road bike miles over the summer has made my lungs huge and my heart invincible. I have this delusion that swinging a hammer is the same as getting over my poles as I skate. I love my delusions until it comes right down to the first day on skis.

Then I think back on all my should-of, would-of, could-of, but didn’t episodes that run through my mind. Should have run a few miles instead of solely relying on the bike. Would have done some situps if work wasn’t constantly getting in my way. Could have got out the roller skis but, you know, I had other stuff to get done.

My reality is I will ski my way back into ski shape beginning day 1 on skis. I will be sorely unprepared for the first Nordic Race of the season. I will be sucking wind and tasting copper in my lungs. I might even get over the first climb with my lungs still in my chest and my eyes still in their sockets… if I’m lucky.

But you know what? That is me. If I really didn’t care to suffer so badly early in the season I would have done something about it. What I really care about is being back on my skis and having fun. Enjoying the early winter season despite my conditioning. Feeling stronger and stronger as the season progresses and skiing with friends. That’s it. I’m ready. I’m mentally prepared. I’m ready to have some fun.

P.S The Ski Haus Super Sale is scheduled for October 10, 11, 12, 2014 this year. All new 2014/15 XC skis, boots, poles, bindings, and clothing will be on sale. Save 20% for three days only. Lots of great deals on any gear leftover from last year, too. See you here!

Venture boardsMade in Colorado

– Brand new for this upcoming season, you will find Venture Snowboards at Ski Haus! We are always on the lookout for the most relevant and exciting products that we feel will enhance your day on the hill or in the backcountry… and Venture shares our passion for both.

Venture Snowboards has been handcrafting boards in their Silverton, Colorado factory since 1999. Because of their location near some of the most demanding terrain in the San Juan Mountains, they have the benefit of being able to build and then test new designs right out their back door.  The result is some of the highest quality snowboards we’ve ever had the pleasure of riding. Venture does not build mass-market boards, their “Secret Sauce” (as they call it) is simply attention to detail… and it shows.

We have both solid and splitboards available from Venture this season, so if you’re looking for a high-quality board that’s 100% Colorado made, we’ve got ya covered. See you at the ‘Haus!

Venture Snowboards will be on sale at the 2014 Ski Haus Super Sale for three days only this October 10, 11, 12. Save 20%.

Storm Solid deck – $595
Storm Splitboard – $895

Altitude 750 Mountain Bike
Fall Mountain Biking is the Best

Bikes like the Rocky Mountain Altitude 750 help us appreciate every moment the fall weather holds on thus allowing one more day of riding in Steamboat Springs. The transition to winter is inevitable and will be welcomed when the time comes, but this is the season when we just want to squeeze in a few more epic trail rides before we break out our skis and snowboards!

The Altitude 750 is an aggressive trail bike featuring a responsive and efficient 650b (27.5”) wheelset, 150 mm of plush travel, and Rocky’s exclusive Ride 9 System providing adjustable geometry and suspension rate. This bike climbs almost as confidently as it descends… making it a perfect choice for the trails here in the Yampa Valley.

The weather in the mountains of Colorado has never come with a guarantee, so my best advice is to get out there and take advantage of the best riding of the season while you can! We have amazing deals on the 2014 Rocky Mountain Altitude 750 in both brand new and lightly-used demo product… but like the fall weather, these deals won’t last. See you at the ‘Haus!

High Visibility Safety

– The Ruffwear Track Jacket is in season right about now. Have you noticed the morning being darker later and the evenings growing dark earlier? Have you noticed your best four-footed friend disappearing in the low light only a few feet away? Have you thought, yikes!? It’s hunting season already but you’re not ready to stop hiking the trails with your dogs? Yes, Yes, and Yes, are the answers to those questions.

The Ruffwear Track Jacket is your ticket to safely taking your best bud with you into the backcountry or for a run/walk along our roads. Keeping your dog visible to yourself, hunters, cars and trucks is a wise idea. I believe a large junk of peace of mind is also included when you wrap your dog in the Track Jacket.

The Ruffwear Track Jacket adds a high level of luminescence making it an essential piece of gear for October hikes or after-work runs all Fall and Winter. The track Jacket is easy on and off with maximum visibility (blaze orange… there’s lots of that color hiking around the mountains these days). There are three separate loops on the jacket to attach Ruffwear’s Beacon safety lights, too. Lots of jackets similar to this one travel all over the dog. Most of them wind up underneath your dog’s tummy  – not very ideal. The Track Jacket will stay in place all day and all night long. The fabric is durable and waterproof so when it comes time to roll, no worries. Let ‘em roll. The Track Jacket will last a very long time.

Additional features include:

  • Lightweight, low-profile tension hooks provide a quick and secure connection
  • Durable, waterproof fabric
  • Streamlined design is easy to put on and stays in place

Lots of the Ski Haus staff member have dogs and spend a lot of time hiking in the forest. We give this product a high five and so will your dog!
