The Weekly Stoke // Avalanche Safety With The BRASS Foundation

by Roger Carry on March 12, 2021

In 2015 an inbounds avalanche in Soelden, Austria claimed the lives of two young U.S. Ski Team athletes, Ronnie Berlack and Bryce Astle. Out of this tragedy the BRASS foundation was created to help recreational and high level skiers/snowboarders take steps towards avalanche awareness and risk mitigation.

This week on the Weekly Stoke we speak to Steve and Cindy Berlack who explain more about the foundation, what you can do to stay safe in avalanche terrain, and how you can help support further avalanche education.

Pano Jacket - Canvas

Best winter jacket ever!

The pano is a great winter jacket—for racing or any activity out in the cold! I bought it for my daughter but now I want one too!

Womens ski pants

I purchased sync ski pants for girlfriend 5 years ago. Unfortunately the new edition of the pants changed so much they needed to be returned. The new leg pocket made the fit to tight in the legs and there was too much fabric in the belly area. Change isn’t always a good thing.

Amazing Shell

I started wearing my Headwall shell this month – you all hit a home run with this product. Comfortable, stretchy, well thought-out, very usable pockets and massive vents. I have the mustard color and I got many questions and compliments on the chair lifts.

Thanks very much for creating this product. This is my go-to shell.

Perfect ski parka

Keeps you warm, and more importantly, keeps you dry. I coached at a race recently through a full day of freezing rain turning to constant rain, and my upper body stayed completely dry.

Missing Embroidery

We love the actual jacket. We’ve ordered four of them. Unfortunately, all of the jackets so far have not been embroidered correctly.
