65' Of Snow + Dolomites = Pure Awesome

G3 athlete Chad Sayers joined Henrik Windstedt and Mattias Fredriksson for the biggest snow year the Italian Dolomites had seen in 50 years. No big deal. Fortunately (or unfortunately for the jealous type), Powder Magazine assembled this mouth watering photo flipbook feature so that we can vicariously experience the storm of the half century.



Expedition Hope - North Pole to Canada

On April 2nd, 2014, Bernice 'Bernie-from-Fernie' Notenboom and her team set off on a 600 mile expedition to ski from the North Pole to Canada. Their weapons of choice? G3's ultralight Carbon ZenOxide 88 skis with G3 Alpinist skins permanently fixed to the bases. If that isn't a good way to field test gear, then what is?

Their trip, labelled 'Expedition Hope', aims to bring awareness and support to the Plant-for-the-Planet program, and ultimately to help mitigate the effects of global warming.


Mt Brazeau in a day, with snowbikes

While most people are hanging up their skis and dusting off their bikes, Canadian ski mountaineering racer Reiner Thoni figured he'd put both skis and bikes to use for the same mission - a one day ski of 11483 ft / 3500 m Mt Brazeau in the Canadian Rockies. And that's just the start of his spring plans. No wonder we recruited him for some lightweight gear testing. Keep it coming Reiner.

Early Season Reminders from Dave Norona

Back in the Pow!!

I love the warm days of summer, riding my mtb, dirt biking and trials riding and of course kite surfing through the warm wind and water of Nitinaht Lake. But nothing feels quite as good as getting back in the powder, especially on a sweet new pair of G3 skis!
