Not every budding grom is blessed with the strength and technical prowess of Martin Lentz.  With 9 years on the Summit and Park City Ski Teams, Martin’s strength and technique is well beyond his years.  Nevertheless, it wasn’t until Martin turned 15 and he foreran a comp at Alta that he decided to focus on what he’s know for today, big mountain freeride skiing.   Martin’s explosive mixture of race-inspired edge control and a developing comfort in the air put the 18 year-old, on the top of the podium at the IFSA National Championships at Snowbird as both the 15-18 year old event winner and overall points champion.

Poles are often an afterthought, but former U.S. Ski Team downhiller Bryon Friedman knows better. “Skiing is soulful,” he says, “and your poles should express that.” This season he launches Soul Poles, hand made from sustainable bamboo and mostly recycled materials (from $125). Acclaimed artist R. Nelson Parrish paints ski poles in the style of totem poles from his native Alaska. Schussers send him helmet cam footage, which he translates into an abstract work on three poles—the extra pole is for over the mantle ($1,000).
