Captained by the leader in snow science and a living legend in the world of understanding more about avalanches, Bruce Jamieson, the Applied Snow and Avalanche Research Program (ASARC) at the University of Calgary has been operational for over twenty years. The small group of graduate students, researchers, and field assistants spend most of their winters out in the backcountry, hording data to the best of their abilities. As the study of avalanches is very much statistical and probability based, the more data that exists the better the observations and insights that can be made.View full article →
The [Anton] 185 was a good balance of a big mountain, beefy ski to handle all the variable conditions and high speed. The 122 mm underfoot and rocker give it great float in the pow, and still light enough and easy to crank around in tight chutes and trees.

Located in Vernon, BC, which is blessed with some of the driest snow on earth, brothers Glenn and Gregg Anderson took their love for tinkering, passion for skiing and ambition to make skiing a way of life and started a ski company. Not an easy thing to do.

I began the process by sculpting a 3-dimensional digital surface. Starting with three basic forms I fractured and shifted the surfaces until they began to read as one plane. The overall dimensions of the plane were determined by the size of a Skevik topsheet and the surface was designed to be viewed from above. After sculpting this surface, it was simply a matter of getting the right colouring and lighting before projecting the surface...View full article →
