Drop Track Banner
Red Bull Drop Track, the first ever ski and snowboard contest at the famous Charlotte Pass road gap, took place on Monday 8 September 2014, with the sell-out event testing some of the world’s greatest skiers and snowboarders.
 
The road gap jump that drops over the main summer track up to Kosciusko has a long history of spring sessions for some of Australia’s and the world’s best skiers and snowboarders. Red Bull, together with a number of partners including Boreas, gave skiers and snowboarders from across the globe the opportunity to session the gap in a jam format contest.
 
The format of the event included two open jam sessions with competitors given the opportunity to attempt as many jumps as possible in the allocated times. Competitors were judged on skill, style and landing, with their top two scores recorded. The top five skiers and snowboarders then went through to a final jam session, before the winner of each discipline was announced.
 Drop Track action Shot
The 45 riders who competed did not disappoint. Australian Olympic freestyle skier Russ Henshaw was the first to hit the morning open jam session, followed by snowboarder Clint Allan who first hit the gap at age 12The open jam session in the morning saw some impressive tricks thrown down; stylish and smooth corked 3’s from Russ Henshaw and Noah Morrison on skis, and cab 3’s from Clint Allan and Scotty James on the board. After the two sessions, the finalists were announced and the final one hour jam gave the top ten riders plenty of time to impress the judges.
 
Local skier Jordan Houghton landed some huge double front flips, and a Switch Kanga to score himself third place. In second place, Canadian Noah Morrison’s switch 1080 in the final was one of the highlights of the day. But it was Red Bull athlete, Elias Ambuhl from Switzerland who took out the ski event, closing out his final session with a super smooth double cork 1080 (and stomped a long way down the landing hill). 
 
It was Australian two time Olympian Scotty James who dominated the snowboard event with a big frontside 1080 in the final, and backing up that score with smooth backside 720. Jeremy Page and Ryan Linnert (both from the USA) rounded out the podium with constant and stylish performances in the final. 
Drop Track Winners
All winners received a Boreas back-country pack or day pack as part of their prize package.
A super fun spring day was had by all and the riders are already talking about what’s in store for next year’s event. Check out all the action at the below link:

Steripen Alpine Award

Blue Hill, ME – August 7, 2014 – After rigorous testing by professional mountain guides, SteriPEN is honored by the American Alpine Institute (AAI) with a 2014 Guides’ Choice Award.

The American Alpine Institute is recognised internationally as a world-class teaching and guide service. AAI’s staff is composed of some of the world's most accomplished climbers, skiers, and mountain educators. Guides’ Choice Awards are given based on excellence in design, performance, and durability. The awards are presented each year at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market trade show in Salt Lake City, Utah. AAI Field Testing indicates SteriPEN Freedom was tested over a 30-day period during which it purified water in La Paz and the Cordillera Real, Bolivia. “Conditions included glacial lakes, streams, outdoor wells, and city tap water.”

 “I feel that this is a great product, especially in a time when fresh drinking water can be an issue,” says American Alpine Institute Guide and product tester,Chad Cochran. “The product allowed us to save countless plastic bottles being able to purify the water right out of the tap in La Paz then carried to the mountains and grant us clean water there. It was very easy to use.”

 When asked what key factors he takes into consideration when awarding a Guides’ Choice, Cochran states, “I look for things that are easy to use and durable both of which this product seems to exhibit.”

 The Guides’ Choice was presented to Neil MacKay, SteriPEN President. “It is truly an honor to be recognised by this prestigious international organization. We are very pleased that the AAI appreciates the benefits of UV water purification over traditional pump filters and chemicals,” stated MacKay. “AAI field testing reinforces the effectiveness of the technology which consistently places SteriPEN at the top of the handheld water purifier market.”

 18Oz Reflect (1)

 A decade after selling the world’s first BPA-free metal water bottle, Klean Kanteen® continues to push the boundaries of beautiful, sustainable design with the Reflect bottle. Crafted using only sustainably harvested bamboo, food-grade silicone and stainless steel, the Reflect bottle raises the bar in Klean Kanteen’s crusade to create healthy, environmentally-friendly alternatives to plastic.

Beautiful in its simplicity and deliberate in design, the Reflect bottle features a Stainless Unibody Cap created from a single piece of stainless steel to guarantee durability and beautifully finished with bamboo.

Every use of a Klean Kanteen product makes a difference!” Kalberer said.

Klean Kanteen’s commitment to the planet is evident in their ability to create products that successfully replace single-use items. “Everything we’re about is designed to ‘Reduce Single-use”. That’s our mantra and we encourage every Klean Kanteen owner to take that pledge alongside us every day” Kalberer said.
