  • Ski Season Coming To an End, Or Is It?

    Backcountry Gear Essentials

    The 2016/2017 season is coming to an end, or is it?  Yes! Most of the resorts did extend their lift operations for a few weeks with the above average snow fall we are having this season.  But what do you do when the lifts close for the season and your still dreaming of turns in the mountains?  I'll tell you what you do, you head to Shoreline and pick up the necessary tools to extend your season until....well forever.  Welcome to the Backcountry, an endless playground of white mountains.  Lets glaze over some equipment that you will need to be safe and efficient in the backcountry.

    Backpack

    Sometimes you have to go deep in the backcountry for untracked pow. With ski / snowboard carry, helmet carry, and a breathable, quick-dry backpanel with main cargo access, this pack is always ready to explore a ridgeline or start breaking trail. Now you just have to figure out where the best place to ride is.

    Beacon

    Board

    2017-never-summer-prospector-splitboard---no-kit-prospector-split-sb-17_1
    The Prospector is designed to take your experience to the next level. An exclusive flat zone under the touring pieces provide extra grip for skinning traction while the Original Rocker Camber Profile and tapered shape give the Prospector ultimate powder floatation on the descent. The elastomeric rubber damping system and firm flex allow the Prospector to mow through runout debris and heavy snow. The unmatched durability of our Carbonium Topsheet and full wrap P-Tex protection will keep the Prospector searching for epic lines for years to come.

    Bindings

    There's a reason the Spark R&D Arc is one of the most popular splitboard bindings available. Lightweight with medium flex for long hours, epic overnighters, trees and steeps, it can do it all.

    Hardware
    Pucks-angles

    Near infinite adjustability for splitboards built with inserts. The unique design gives the Spark Pucks channel-like adjustability for regular splitboards.

    Poles

  • 84 Inches in 7 days

    #Snowpocalypse

    Heavenly has received 84" of the white stuff in the last 7 days.  Be aware we have had periods of rain in between the snowfall making the snow totals deceiving at lake level and causing resorts to experience lift operation qualms.  With the current weather prediction by OpenSnow we should see the storm pattern continuing into the month.  Locals are experiencing power outages and flooding from the continuous storms.  Everybody is waiting for the resorts to get back into a state of operation.  Heavenly is hopeful to open Jan 10th 2017.  With a great start to the season, this wet snow will make a great base that will help progress our 2017 season!  Now is a great time to do some online shopping and get exciting for the storms to come!

  • Great Googles for an Affordable Price! $100+/-

    Mid-Priced Googles That We Love-  $100+/- Rangegog1

    There is an overwhelming selection of googles to choose from these days.  How do you decide which ones to choose?   Prices can ranging from $30 for a basic pair upwards of $500 with a GPS or camera built into your googles.  At Shoreline we find that most customers are looking for that great priced do-it-all google.  I picked a handful of googles from our display case that I enjoy selling.

     

    Zeal Optics, Fargo $98.95

    gog7 zeal optics fargo

    Zeal Optics based out of Boulder, Colorado has been making great eye wear quietly over the years.  The Fargo comes equipped with an array of technology. to prevent fogging, triple-layer face foam and dual lens construction will keep the fog out of your lenses and you on the slopes.  Impact resistant, helmet compatible and no slip grip are all great standard features that are usually found in a mid price google.  I have had only great experiences with Zeal Optics.

     

    Smith Optics, Squad $99.99

    gog3 Smith Squad

    My personal favorite to sell to customers looking to upgrade their googles but not yet ready to pony up the cash for a high end google.  With a partially frameless design, In my opinion, the best looking google in the group .  Boasting a cylindrical carbonic-x lens and TLT lens technology for crystal clear vision.  You can't go wrong with the Squad.  Did I mention the Squad comes with a bonus lens?  Helmet compatible and an ultra-wide silicone back strap to keep everything where it needs to be.  I can't say enough good things about this google.

    Oakley, Line Miner $129.99

    gog5 Oakley Line Miner

    A new edition to the Oakley line up and quite a good one.  A tad higher priced than a few of the other googles, but don't rule this google out as the lens is as good as it gets.   Featuring Oakley's newest lens technology, PRIZM.  This lens will work in all conditions and provide a clear vision to whats ahead of you on the open mountain.  This google will also work for people that wear prescription glasses.

    SPY Optics, Marshall $109.95

    gog6 Spy Marshall

    Spy optics has a trick of two of their own.  Made from 100% biodegradable Plantate-an all natural plant material.  So you know your helping Mother Earth out!  Spy's Happy Lens program is on another level, If your not happy with your product within 14 days they will give you a full refund.  So feel free to try these bad boys out.  Loaded with standard features like scoop ventilation and a spherical dual lens.

    Anon, Relapse $119.95

    gog4 Anon Relapse

    The Relapse doesn't come package with a integrated face mask like some of its more upscale brothers, but it is 100% compatible.  This google is over the glasses compatible just like the Line Miners.  While this google has all the features of a do it all google, I picked this google because it comes with two lens and the frame has nice aesthetics.  Anon googles also integrate with Anon helmets and can make a cozy cockpit.

    Dragon Alliance, NFX $129.95

    gog2 Dragon NFX

    The only fully frameless google in the line-up with hypo-allergic micro fleece lining.  Too many features to list like armored venting to prevent snow from clogging up your vents and a bonus lens.  A great cross-over google to bring into other sports like biking, the NFX holds up to 30 laminated tear offs for extra muddy days.  Add these dragons to your collection if your a versatile monster.

  • Snowboard Boot Lacing Systems, Which to Choose?

    Lacing Types, whats the difference?

    boot-typesThere is a large selection of snowboard boots to choose from in this day in age, with a variety of lacing systems.  How do you know which lacing system is right for you?  More than likely any will do, but each lacing system has its owns strengths to boast.  I will discuss the various options that are available and my personal opinions on each lacing system.  remember, these are just my personal opinions.  at shoreline every employee rides a different lacing system!

    Fast Track Lacing

    type1 2017 ThirtyTwo Lashed - Fast Track

    Fast Track gets you onto the mountain without fumbling with traditional laces, tightening the upper and lower zones with the quick pull of each lacing handle. Not only does this system simplify the lacing process, but more importantly, it adjusts the boot's flex to your personal riding style and local terrain.  Growing in popularity because of its simplicity and quickness Fast Track lacing should not be overlooked.  Some of our top shredders rock the fast track system with no complaints.  check out the the ThirtyTwo Lashed XLT

    Boa Lacing

    type2 2017 DC Control- Double Boa

    There are two main types of boa systems – Single Boa and Double Boa.  Single boa systems have one knob for the whole boot.  Double boa systems have one knob which controls the lower boot and one knob that controls the upper boot.  Really easy to get them tight.  Just a matter of twisting the knob, especially good for those with weaker grip.  Easy to tighten when fingers are cold and even while wearing gloves.  With the Boa system you are less likely to experience too much heel lift.  especially with the Ride lassos which are known for eliminating heal lift!

    Traditional Lace

    type3 2016 ThirtyTwo Lashed Bradshaw- Traditional Lace

    Tried and True, this lacing system is either loved or hated.  Loved because of its simplicity and ease to replace the laces.  Sometimes hated because there is so many other lacing system with technology built into them that can make your lacing experience much quicker.  Many freestyle riders choose this traditional lacing system because it allows a good flex through out the boot.  Check out the ThirtyTwo TM-2 one of the most sought after boots of all time ridden by many pro snowboarders.

    Hybrid Lacing
    type4 2016 K2 T1 - Hybrid lacing

    The best of Both worlds? Traditional lacing on the front of the boot and Boa cables on the inner liner. Traditional lace allows for easy replacement and ease of mind knowing there is no room for technology to fail.  While laces are doing there job on the exterior the Boa cables are keeping your heel locked down.  with the reliability of the laces and heal lock when you need it on the inner liner.  This  lacing system is the authors favorite choice in the line up.  Check out the ThirtyTwo Session Grenier boot for a great Hybrid experience.
