Mt Bachelor Vertfest made way for skiers to get vertical with clear skies, a chilly 10 degrees and plenty of snow. Vertfest was on the go since 7 AM and the competition was brave. RACE, BEER, VICTORY was on the minds of over 150 racers.
Nevado Mountain Adventures brought skinny and fat skis with telemark and Outlaw NTN bindings from 22 Designs blazing your performance up and down the hill http://www.twentytwodesigns.com/
Helmets were a requirement to enter the race therefore our D-Curve products came in handy for some customers as they experienced the exceptionally lightweight and comfortable free-ride snow helmet. https://www.dcurve.com/dcurve-helmets/
Littered with back-country skiers, lines of enthusiasts could be seen skinning up the mountain. We entered two racers in the competition with CEP compression ski ultra-light socks and Swany Pro-V gloves. Here are their testimonies: “This is hands down the best glove made. It's the perfect weight for skiing and the soft leather molds to your hand” “ the improved circulation and performance enhancing benefits that CEP offers is like no other compression sock.”
Doesn’t it make sense to stop by and try before you BUY?

Last month, Eric took one of our Springbar tents out to Utah for a demo, here’s what he had to say:
When the temperatures drop and you get hit with rain and snow, there’s nothing like having a comfortable, spacious, and sturdy tent to ride out a storm! I demoed this tent for a road trip into the Utah desert to climb and slackline. Being out camping for so long, my adventure partners and I sought a tent that would keep us from feeling cramped.
Our first day in Indian Creek was my first time setting up the tent. We found a good flat spot and had the tent up in just minutes! The Springbar pole design is intuitive and easy to use. With four of us staying in the tent there was ample room for us to sleep and store our belongings as well.
When a rainstorm came into the area during our stay, the canvas fabric repelled water easily and gave us a dry place to hang out while we waited out the storm. With several hours to kill, we could stretch, read, play cards, and write without standing on top of each other. This is especially important in a place that’s over an hour away from the nearest town!
Our second campsite was at the Fruit Bowl, a slackline area to the north of Moab. We camped there for over a week and put the Springbar tent to the test! We had rain, wind, group tent hangouts, frigid temperatures, and more. This tent did not even flinch at any of these things!
Initially, only having two uprights had me worried about how the tent would perform in high winds. This worry only lasted a few minutes into the first gusts. The tent swayed, but the heavy-duty stakes held the base firmly in place and the uprights barely moved! Gusts were reaching up to 30 or 40mph and the Highline 6 stayed firmly rooted, even in the sandy place we camped.
If you’re looking for a tent that will help you to truly enjoy your long-term camping experiences, then a Springbar tent is for you! Learn more about these incredible tents at Springbar.com, and stay tuned on the Nevado Facebook page to learn how you can demo one before you buy!
Compression garments have long been used in the medical field to stimulate bloodflow and aid in recovery. Now you can use this technology to bring your outdoor experience to the next level! When compression is brought into sports like skiing and hiking, it helps you to perform better and longer.
Recently, I took my CEP socks out to demo in the desert. I went out for a day of hiking and climbing and loved his CEP Compression+ socks for the approach! On the "calf-burner" uphill I didn't feel the typical tightness and discomfort I was accustomed to, instead feeling an extra energy for upward momentum. In climbing, it is important to get to the climb quickly and efficiently. Not compromising my calves along the way is essential to those goals. CEP socks allowed me to start climbing with fresh-feeling legs and enjoy the climb to the fullest! On top of that, the socks are incredibly comfortable!
When the winter comes, take your CEP socks to the mountain with you! These socks are a great way to bring more blood down to your feet to keep them warm and help you enjoy your day on the slopes to the fullest! CEP also makes an insulated, ski-specific, sock that offers padding just where you need it! The extra insulation allows you to be sure your toes will stay warm, even on especially cold days!
Try out these amazing socks before you buy them at a Nevado demo this winter! You can find our schedule at: nevado.com/pages/winter-schedule
Nevado Mountain Adventures performs outdoor gear and bike checks in the Pacific NorthWest:
Heading on a snowmobile trail in November is quite challenging due to the variety of conditions on the road. Slamming into mud with slick ice underneath is usually a scare for sure. The Rambo Bikes out performed any other motorized vehicle on this type of terrain. We easily maneuvered through snow, mud, ice and rock. We found that taking some of the air out of the tires helped with traction and shock absorption.
We decided to wear CEP ski merino compression socks which comforted our tired muscles from climbing steep terrain. The improved circulation and performance enhancing benefits that CEP offers is like no other compression sock.
Exploring the outer boundaries with D-Curve bike helmets and sunglasses blends style, function and safety. The helmet is exceptionally lightweight and comfortable. For sunglasses we tested the Kokopelli which gave us a crisp vision of the terrain ahead. The Nadir is designed to give a more extensive field of vision and it did just that. Both lenses have a hydrophobic coating which repels water, dirt and oil. Neither sunglass fogged up on us and the vented lenses kept enough air circulating throughout the entire ride. The Nadir has NASTEK P3 3.0 technology which filters out 100% of UVA, UVB, UVC, and 98.9% of harmful blue light. Whoa!
Nevado Mountain Adventures is super stoked to get customers on the Rambo Bikes and into our outdoor gear. Check out our FREE demo event schedule at: https://www.nevado.com/pages/winter-schedule
On my most recent trip, I left Bend for a week of travel, climbing, and slack lining in the Sierras. We began our trip by heading to Mammoth Lakes, and then drove over the pass for a few days in Yosemite Valley.
I brought along the CampChef Stryker 150 and Rainier Camper’s Combo. Previously I had a two burner white gas stove that broke, and then a range of small backpacking stoves. Using these CampChef stoves changed my world!
I ended up using both stoves for nearly every breakfast and dinner. The first thing I appreciated with these stoves after their easy setup were the robust strikers built into both stoves. The first night, we arrived to a hot spring near Mammoth after dark and the Camper’s Combo was quick to set up and ignited immediately, which our grumbling stomachs appreciated. After a nice soak, it was just as easy to use the Stryker to make tea for everyone that we were with!
The next morning, temperatures were below freezing and all of our toes struggled to warm up. This was no problem for the Stryker though, with its Heat Ring technology we had a full pot of water ready in just minutes. A quick breakfast of oatmeal and tea helped us shake off the shiver of the previous night.
When we arrived in Yosemite, we were greeted by much warmer temperatures. On our relaxing morning off, we decided to make a big breakfast in El Cap Meadow! The built in griddle on the Camper’s Combo was perfect for making pancakes while we cooked scrambled eggs in a pan on the burner. It was very easy to cook on low heat with this stove which is a great departure from many stoves that don’t have much temperature adjustability. We were able to keep our eggs from burning as we finished up the rest of the meal!
One drawback for me was the griddle on the Camper’s Combo. It was perfect for pancakes and would be great for grilling if you used the alternate grill, but I found myself wishing a couple times that I had a second burner instead. This is just a preference though, and the griddle works great if that is what you are looking for!
In short, both of these stoves are great! Try them out or see them in person at a Nevado event this winter, or order one, like I did, at CampChef.com
