The Return of Kastle

It disappeared a few years ago after making skis forever, or so it seemed. But now it's been brought back, revived close to it's original home, and they're making skis again. I'd like to try some out.

Check it out: Kaestle Skis.

Dynastar's New Pro Deals

Looks like Dynastar/Lange has finally outlined what their new Pro-Form style sales will look like. The only details to it I've found come from SkiPressWorld in this article

The short version of the details:
Specifically, legitimate pro skiers will go to Dynastar's Prostaff Website where they'll be able to explore all there is to know about the brands before being directed to some of the most passionate, pro-friendly ski shops anywhere in the world. These shops will make the sale. And shop and pro will have greater familiarity with each other and the sport. Dynastar, by working with PSIA, will aggressively promote these "Pro Specialist" retailers to PSIA's membership as well as to the greater skiing population at large.

Find a Jobby Job

Justin over at has found an interesting little project, called One Week Job. Justin does a good job explaining it, but the short version is this guy Sean is traveling around Canada taking a job for a week. Why? Hopefully to find his lot in life, but also because it makes for a pretty cool adventure.

For the most part the site is a blog of his adventures that include some great commentary. I'm hoping we'll see more of the compiled videos though like this one.
