Cy Whitling reviews the Hinterland Maul 121 for Blister

Hinterland is a small-batch ski manufacturer out of Utah, and we’ve been impressed by the widest ski in their lineup, the Maul 121. Check out our full review for more on the ski and how it compares to other playful pow skis on the market.

Beringia Altai Over Hoody

Cy Whitling reviews the Beringia Altai Over Hoody for Blister

When it comes to stop-and-start activities like ski touring, a big puffy jacket can not only be nice, but also extremely important if things go wrong in the backcountry. We’ve been using the Beringia (the North American branch of Teton Bros) Altai Over Hoody a lot this season, and think it makes for a great insulation layer. Check out our full review.

The Manifest 3L Jacket & Pants from FW, a brand-new apparel company, have tons of features, a modern “freeride” fit, and offer skiers & snowboarders a unique aesthetic. But how do they perform as both an inbounds and backcountry kit? Check out our review.

2020-2021 Roxa R3 130 T.I.

Cy Whitling reviews the Roxa R3 130 T.I. for Blister

The Roxa R3 130 was a pretty good AT boot, but we think the updated 19/20 version is a great one. If you’re looking for a boot that you can use inbounds and in the backcountry, the new R3 130 is worth a look.

2020-2021 J Skis The Vacation

Cy Whitling reviews the J Skis Vacation for Blister

The J Skis Vacation used to basically be a J Skis Metal without the metal. But this year, the updated Vacation is an entirely different ski … and we’d argue that it is better in virtually every regard. Check out our full review of this playful all-mountain ski.
