Going into the ‘13-14 season we formed a relationship with Ethnotek Bags as a marketing partner for our North America West Soul Shop Tour. As a producer of active lifestyle bags, the connection with a bamboo ski pole manufacturer doesn’t intuitively fit; nevertheless, Ethnotek’s inspiring story and mission won our hearts over.

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.
