RECENT PHOTO SHOOT AT CRYSTAL MOUNTAIN WITH MIKE STOLP-SMITH

The northwest has been getting hammered the last few weeks with storm after storm after storm!  It has been quite a season thus far! Recently photographer Mike Stolp-Smith and I went deep into the backcountry at Crystal Mountain Resort in search of some remaining goods!
  

Dalbello LUPO SP ski boot [2014/2015]

So, I skied on the KR2 PRO all last season and loved it, and I think I will like this model even more because of the hiking features. Features especially important on this boot is the rubberized sole, and the walk mode.

Full review to come soon, once we get some new snow!  Buy Now!  BACKCOUNTRY.COM  $679

Last season we did some shooting with photographer Matt Small.  The goal: action shots showing off the products we are doing reviews on.  Kinda hard to show socks in a photo, however, this worked out nicely!  Location: Crystal Mountain, WA.
