Hopefully, you haven't put away your parka for the winter, because winter isn't done yet! The Ides of March are just about upon us and spring is soon to follow, but that isn't stopping winter from giving us, at least, one last hurrah, if not more! Little birdies have been whispering about 3 feet of snow, perhaps, gracing our mountain tops on Wednesday! Fingers crossed!!! If not 3 feet of snow, the predominate weather models are in agreement that we are definitely bound to get "at least" a foot, but 3 feet is definitely within the realm of possibility. This should set us up for a some stellar spring skiing! If you've prematurely tossed out your ratty, old ski pants, or you retired your jacket for the winter, or you don't think your skis can make it over one last bump, or you're just in the mood for some new equipment; stop on down to SlopeStyle, we're having a storewide 20-30% of sale (excluding bikes and GoPros)! We are just as pumped as you are for this snow storm, and are ready to get you ready for the inevitable powder day ahead! Yipee!!!!!

With the temperatures hovering so close to zero, it's hard to believe Spring is upon us. We're into March and if it weren't for our ability to read the calendar, it would be easy to assume we are still stuck in January. In the extended forecast it looks as if we might get a slight, temporary, reprieve from the crippling cold, but it doesn't look like it's going to last long...Thankfully, SlopeStyle still has a wide selection of jackets, pants, baselayers, face masks, some gloves, etc...to get you through the rest of this biting winter. Fingers crossed that this cold means we'll be skiing and riding long into spring.

The Dynastar Cham 87 is a rocking ski, quite literally... The long tip rocker and wide profile; 127 in the tip and 103 in the tail; give the immediate assumption of "great powder ski!" That assumption is entirely true, but the kicker with this ski is the sidecut, 87 underfoot! You go from an insanely wide 127 down 40 millimeters to 87, and then back up to 103! This dramatic width difference combined with camber underfoot make it a great carving ski too! So, the Dynastar Cham 87 is the epitome of multipurpose, you can rip it up on the groomers, or blast through powder off trail, anything you want! The Cham 87 is 25% lighter than its male counterpart, making it more female friendly and easy to maneuver. Overall, the Dynastar Cham 87 is a ripping ski, for any advanced lady looking to conquer it all! If your interested, you can find it here at SlopeStyle: Ski and Ride!

If you want something to do Thursday night, I highly recommend heading to Burlington to check out the premiere of "Drop In: Blood Couloir." It's an inspiring film series that follows Jeremy P. McGhee, a paraplegic athlete, as he travels the globe participating in dangerous, and exciting adventures, including back country skiing. The premiere will be held at Davis Center at UVM, Thursday night, 2/27, at 7pm, admission is free, though $10 donations are highly encouraged. All proceeds from the evening will benefit the UVM Adaptive Club and Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports.

Today I'm going to talk to you a little bit about the Scott Vedder Jacket. The Scott Vedder Jacket is a solid jacket, 20,000mm of waterproofing and 20,000g of breathability, it will keep you dry from the outside as well as from the inside. The jacket is on the thinner side for maneuverability, but it's not a shell, there is a 100g of insulation in the body and 80g in the sleeve; so long as you layer accordingly, you'll be plenty warm. The Vedder Jacket is complete with fully taped seems to seal out all moisture, armpit venting, detachable hood, powder skirt featuring jacket-to-pant interlock system; and many, many pockets including but not limited to handwarmer pockets, and mp3 player pocket with cord portal. The Scott Vedder Jacket will keep you warm, dry, and on the move, in just about anything winter can dish out and you can find it at SlopeStyle!

With every year it seems that time is perpetually flying faster and faster, minutes drifting into hours, and hours, endlessly, drifting into days. It seems just like yesterday that we were gorging over turkey and stuffing midst our bustling families. I can still taste the cranberry sauce and later, the pumpkin pie, as it melted, lusciously, in my mouth. Here it is nearing the end of February, winter will soon be fazing into spring and it only feels as though it's just begun. I imagine, for the children in school, they are ever wishing time forward so that they can reach vacation time starting this coming Monday. With the end of February and winter vacation, comes ski resorts fervently preparing for vacationers, and ski shops beginning midwinter sales. We at SlopeStyle are ready and willing to help you out with anything you need for your upcoming ski vacation, from tune-ups to daily rentals, or Sugarbush lift tickets, and anything else you might need; we have you covered! Plus through Sunday 2/23 we're having an in-store midwinter sale, 30% off almost everything! Time may be creeping by us faster and faster, but we can help you to enjoy every second of it!

It almost seems that we might be having a repeat of last winter. Sub-par beginning and spectacular back-end! In just the past week most ski resorts recieved at least a foot of snow, if not much, much more! It looks like tomorrow we're in for another round of snow, winter storm Pax is moving in and we're expected to get anywhere from 10-16 inches! Are you prepared for the powder day? If not, all of SlopeStyle's jackets and pants are 25% off, and most jackets have powder skirts to keep the fresh snow from going up your back! So, fingers crossed that we get all the well-deserved snow we could imagine!
