Fall is in full swing with Snowy days followed by crisp autumn air. The forecast for the next few weeks looks spicy! I think last weekend might have been the last opportunity for Mt. Biking up valley. Our focus is now on pow days! Lets hope El Nino delivers!!

It is crazy but we back into that time of year again. All of our skis and snowboards for the 2015-2016 are/will be arriving to the shops over the next month. We have updated our website with current pictures and descriptions of our gear. I really like what Volkl is doing and am super excited to jump on a High Society board. With El Nino still showing mega strength, I am hoping to use the pow sticks all winter long!!!

Checking the snow totals for our resorts since mid February is jaw dropping. Thanks to AspenWeather.net for compiling the numbers. Here is an excerpt:
I added up snow totals from February 15th until 6am today. Amounts at the ski resorts were 57 to 72 inches.
The skiing is so good right now! K2 timed the storm perfectly and dropped off some gear from the 2016 line for the crew to tryout. The attached picture is the Pinnacle 118.

Winter is coming back in full force! We have had 22 inches in the last 7 days with most of it falling in the last 3. Wow! Colorado never ceases to amazing us. The weather pattern has been a bit odd this winter with major warm and cold spells. Having soft snow and great pow turns is just too much fun! All of our powder skis were feeling a bit neglected and now it seems to be the only ski requested for rentals!
The picture above is just off the slopes as I walk from our Stonebridge Inn location to the hill. More updates to come soon on Facebook!

Well, the Incline team just got back from looking at all of next year’s gear. It is crazy how quickly the seasons fly by. K2 and Volkl have the most changes going into next season. For K2 the Rictor series is gone. For the women, out goes the potion line and they bring back a version of the Burnin series. We liked this because the Burnin line has such strong brand recognition with our customer. For Volkl, the bridge is gone! Sad to see it go but excited for the next line. The RTM line stays but from a construction standpoint a lot changes. The above photos are just a few shots taken from my phone. Nothing earth shattering but gives you and idea for the show. We went to OnSnow at Copper and had a chance to ski and ride everything.
Our conclusion? Everything skis great. This sport is legit and I hope to enjoy turns for many years to come!

Holiday week is over! How did that happen?? As we begin in January, we are grateful for all the holiday snow and great people. The picture shown is of our Xmas party. And no, Davis did not get another shower curtain. With snowpack back around 100% and sunny skies, we all wait for the next pow day and look forward to many great days ahead. Come by the shop and say hi!!

Let the Ski and Snowboarding rentals start early! The shot above is from our friends over at Aspen Snowmass. We cannot wait for the slopes to open. Whats more, the forecast for this weekend is calling for mucho powder! Pow skis for opening day? Say what??? Our Aspen Shop will open this Saturday for the season. Snowmass is set to open on Thanksgiving but that could change given the forecast. Let’s party!!

The Incline crew went to Loveland this week to checkout the preseason demo day. With the snow pounding, the team made the drive. The snow has been falling for about four hours and is only increasing in intensity. Early November was full of mountain biking, those days are long behind. The shops are almost ready!!!! See the sequence of events above. Angry driver, stoked passengers, and pow slayers.

Well good morning snow.
I see you have been up to Gwyn’s High Alpine on Snowmass. I think we should hangout more often. Winter is coming and we, at Incline, feel you should spend it with us, here in Aspen/Snowmass. We have been cleaning our skis and boards and are ready for your arrival. Our new gear is arriving and needs some face time.

After opening around 1,000,000 cardboard boxes this week, the Incline crew decides to breakaway for amazing albeit cold bike ride. Our indian summer weather is just about done with snow in the forecast this weekend. We all decided that one last great ride is needed. Our hands are beat up from unpacking skis, boots and snowboards. Going back to washing and scrubbing ski boots didn’t seem like a fun alternative. So, we went on a ride!
