Pray for snow....and a new Skimo boot from Crispi

Welcome to the beginning of ski season!  How do we quantify this? 

1) First real mensurable snow is forecasted for late this week...and you can usually expect even more in the mountains around Crested Butte.

2) New gear is being released/hyped daily by the ski companies.  We are making our wish lists up right now!

Joel Gratz at Colorado Powder Forecast is calling for upwards of 10"+ by the weekend so I know there will be a few of us getting our first tracks of the year!

Additionally, Crispi (an Italian boot manufacturer best know for tele boots) has seen the "light" and is now making an entrance into tech fitting boots.  Its appears to be a three buckle light weight rando boot.  I'm not sure we will see much of this boot in the US this year, but always encouraging to us when we see another boot manufacturer embrace AT.

A new lightweight skimo boot from Crispi is coming out this Winter....check it out.  A mix of carbon and plastic, held together on your foot by three buckles.  Crispi (an Italian boot manufacturer best know for tele boots) has seen the "light" and is now making an entrance into tech fitting boots.  I'm not sure we will see much of this boot in the US this year, but always encouraging to us when we see another boot manufacturer embrace AT.

Do your snow dance!
