On-Snow Demo At Timberline Lodge – Sunday, March 6th

As the world turns and seasons shift, many of us find ourselves pondering the future; of what lies ahead and so on and so forth. But, why? The future can’t be told, assumed obviously, but assumptions will only get you the ass end of a bad deal, and bad deals aren’t something we’re accustom to at U.S. Outdoor. Instead, we would like to give you the chance to step into the future (quite literally) with a time honored ski and snowboard on-snow demo day!

On March 6th, 2016, U.S. Outdoor will be teaming up with Timberline Lodge and a battalion of brands so you can ride the wave of the future via next year’s quiver. GOOD deals will be made on 2016 and 2017 skis and snowboards! Fates will be sealed. Assumptions will be banished. Just make sure you register first! You can register online here or register at U.S. Outdoor. Registration prior to the event is free and will save you money! More details below.

2015 Bent Chetler Atomic Skis – Sneak Peak

In 1945, the atomic bomb had thrown into question the morality of man and the inconceivable notion of a nuclear war that would bring “Dooms Day” upon us all. Heavy. Fast forward a few years to 2015, and we glance upon an Atomic product designed not for the mass destruction of mankind, but the figurative mass destruction of backcountry terrain with no adverse affect on the world at large. That product is none other than the 2015 Atomic Bent Chetler Skis.

In its sixth year, the Bent Chetler Project enriches its innards by adding HRZN tech to increase the tip and tail flotation by 10% all while keeping the swing weight down. But what does this mean? Far from being a double rainbow but just as magical, these new adjustments allow the ski to plane more efficiently and spin more easily. A freeskiing powder-hound’s dream! The 2015 Bent Chetler Skis playfully pummel powder conditions like a school yard bully mashing through stolen peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. The new HRZN tech tip and tail will blast through the crud better than ever with far less deflection, making for a smooth ride in all conditions. Fantastic.

2015 Atomic Bent Chetler Ski

Watch the evolution of the Atomic Bent Chetler Skis in the video below, and you will soon understand how this ski has upped the ante. But remember, this is just a sneak peak. So you will have to wait a year to experience it.

Sarajevo: A Landscape Lost in Translation

Sarajevo has seen its fair share of hard times; rocked by the Bosnian War and political conflict that has left a literal and figurative mark on the leading social and economic center of Bosnia. But this short film sponsored by Atomic Skis, +Battery Energy Drink and featuring freeskiers Matti Raty, Riku Laakso and Oskari Raitanen help to cast new light on the war torn landscape that has been lost in political translation.

Beyond the bullet holes and archived CNN coverage, the snow-capped city of Sarajevo gives rise to some very creative eccentricities as freeskiers explore the peaks and city streets of this somewhat forgotten land; the ins and outs of which will surprise you. It is certainly not Lake Tahoe and it’s sure isn’t Aspen, but watch this video and tell me you wouldn’t be stoked to share in this adventure… ENJOY!
