The question we get asked the most about boot testing (after, “Can I help you test?”) is: “Why are all the reviews so damn positive?” The answer is simple. We begin the test process with only boots we think are going to perform well.

Lake Louise Eyes New Terrain

With the winning bid, Beijing, China, becomes the first city to host a Summer and Winter Games. But with only two official bids, it seems nobody wants to stage winter's premier athletic event.

The International Olympic Committee, this morning, named Beijing as the host city for the 2022 Winter Olympics making it the first city to host both a Summer and Winter Games—and within 14 years, at that. 

With a proposed budget of $1.5 billion (U.S.), Beijing plans to use much of the same infrastructure it built for the Summer Games in 2008—such as the Bird’s Nest stadium. With that as a headstart, Beijing anticipates breaking even or making profit after hosting the Games. We'll see.

After closing to the public for a few years, Echo Mountain in Colorado plans to start turning its lifts for everyone this season.

Echo Mountain ski area in Clear Creek County, Colorado announced that it'll reopen to the public this December. The 226-acre ski area closed to the public in 2012 when it was purchased by Nora Pykkonen, who transformed it into a ski-racing training facility that focused on kids. By reopening, Pykkonen hopes that they can extend the ski hill’s hours and create more opportunities for ski training at the mountain.
