PaddyO Shreds Copper Mountain

SIA 2014 On Snow Demo

I just got back from one of the most exciting and smile inducing trips of my life. I was sent out to SIA to check out all the sneak peaks of 2015 gear: skis, boots, bindings, apparel, you name it— it was there. The show in Denver was incredible and my skiing appetite was in a ravenous fervor. Mother Nature decided to tease us all as we were inside the Denver Convention Center talking about skiing. She deposited a huge storm across Colorado. Luckily for us Copper Mountain was hosting the On Snow Demo, had received a hefty fresh blanket of white, and was continuing to accumulate. The conditions were perfect to click into brand new skis for next years season. Here’s a quick little teaser edit. Keep it locked with The House to find out my picks and favorites for the 2015 Season. More to come!!!

Big thanks to Nick from K2, Nick and Sam from Nordica, and Mr. Matt Sterbenz himself from 4FRNT. It was a blast skiing with y’all…and oooohhhhweee those skis!!! Thanks Copper for hosting such an awesome event. Can’t wait to get back!
