Gear Testing in Spring Powder

April 23rd, 2008 by Doug Schnitzspahn

We closed out the season up at Eldora testing gear for the Outside Buyer’s Guide and enjoying some April powder. For this little excursion out the gates and into the backcountry we tested brand new Karhu Storms, Movement Goliaths, and Atomic RT86s. We also donned Marmot and Arc’teryx hard shells and a Nau soft shell. All performed admirably—but it’s tough to complain about anything with conditions like this…

Isaac Stokes filmed the action (and his own line) with a Flip video camera…

Karl gave Arc’teryx’s Theta SV a thorough test here….

    Good to see the pieces really being tested for the buyers guide. Tough job, but some one has to do it.
