Breck Trip Recap: Hunting for Pow Soul7 Style

After a quick weekend run out to Breckenridge from one of Sun & Ski’s Northeastern Outposts, our Woburn, MA store, I can safely say that the Rossignol Soul7 absolutely slayed it out there!

It wasn’t looking like we were in for much fresh snow, but ever fickle mother nature decided otherwise and laid down a good 6-10 inches of fresh Colorado Champagne Pow.  Conditions on the leeward sides and sheltered areas were straight butter and the Soul7’s really got to show their true colors from soft turns through trees, to some high speed lively open bowl rips, to cranking carves on the groomers and runouts, the Soul7’s were steadfast through and through!

The best turns were had with a little bootpack up to the Windows (where the pictures in the trees are from), which was made all the easier with the fabulous walk mode the Dalbello Panterras offer not to mention the enhanced traction of the rubberized soles.  A bit of thin air created some huffing and puffing on the way up, but after a short breath or two we were good to go.  Fresh hero turns after swooping in on 2nd chair up Imperial while the sun was peeking out on the fully wind loaded bowl was definitely one of the major highlights and a good chance to open things up a bit more, glad I bought the skis long for sure!

Camaraderie was high both in the on-hill bars and in-town, with many of Sun & Ski’s loyal customer base out and about for their holiday trips.  As a New Englander getting to meet more of our Texas customers out on the hill enjoying all the great gear our stores provide was awesome to see not too mention the smiles on many faces having fun on the hill!  Can’t wait to get back out to Colorado to chase some more pow and get after soe bigger terrain as more things open up!
