SCOTT – Layer Like a Pro

download

How you dress for your day in the mountains can make or break your experience. Whether you’re a resort skier, mountaineer, or big mountain freerider, strategic layering is key to ensure all day comfort and enjoyment. Following these simple steps will allow you to make quickly adapt based on your activity level and changing weather conditions.

It doesn’t matter if you are skinning up to your secret powder stash, or summiting your next peak. You will sweat. If you don’t, you’ll overheat. The ideal comfort zone for the body is 37°, above this temperature, it becomes difficult to stay focused and perform at your best.

In order to keep your body best in its optimal comfort zone, we recommend wearing different layers so you can actively regulate your temperatures throughout the day. The thinner these layers are, the more precise the regulation.

Each layer has a function

SCOTT products are specifically designed to work in harmony with one-another, and our full line of layering pieces is no exception. Together with SCOTT outerwear, our layering keeps skiers warm, dry, and ready to tackle the mountain.

 1. BASE LAYER

Staying dry in cold weather environments is the first step in ensuring all day comfort. As the name implies, the base layer is your next-to-skin layer and is vital for actively managing perfusion. It helps regulate core temperature by moving your body’s perspiration away from your skin.

2. MIDLAYER / INSULATING LAYER

The midlayer, or insulating layer, provides the warmth you need to play in the cold. The insulating layer helps retain the heat you produce by trapping air close to your body. Natural fibers such as wool and goose down are excellent insulators.

3. SHELL LAYER / OUTER LAYER

The shell layer/outer layer is your shield, protecting you from the elements. All SCOTT shells are treated with a durable water repellent (DWR) finish, which ensures that moisture will bead up, and easily roll off the fabric. But keeping the elements out is only half the battle. A good shell-layer also needs to offer good ventilation capabilities, so perspiration can properly exit the body and evaporate rather than condense on the inside of your shell.

SCOTT Sports – Back Country Camping and Line Scoping in Alaska

SCOTT Freeski athletes Sam Cohen and McKenna Peterson, had eyes on a Spring trip to Alaska for the 2017 season. However, with a strange wind event destroying the snow pack in early January along most of the coastal mountain ranges in well-known areas such as Haines, the team was forced to look deeper. Coming upon the Zone known as the Brothel Spine wall, nestled in the Fairweather Range of AK, Sam and company decided this was the place and settled in for 3 weeks of skiing and adventure.

SCOTT Celeste III – Women’s Backcountry Ski Boot – First Look

The following is a review from wildsnow.com by Lisa Dawson

c3_3395

Backcountry skiers who tour in the mountains and ski on-and-off the resorts are always looking for the boot that can do it all. A boot that is lightweight for skinning up peaks, but has enough beef when the call of the day is lift served yo-yo laps.

Last winter I spent many days in Scott’s Celeste 2 women’s ski boot. For its performance, comfort and weight, (and perhaps because the old Garmont last seems to fit my feet the best) the boot became my favorite. It would have been perfect except for a glitchy walk mode switch. Even after I sent them back for repair, the boots would occasionally lock when uphilling.

Improved walk/ski system: the hook.

Among other things, I am delighted to report that Scott improved the design on the Celeste III with an external lean lock, replete with additional extra hook in the lock mechanism. This type of lock clearly makes accidental switches from walk to ski, ski to walk mode nearly impossible.

(Tech Note from Lou: In our testing of Scott Cosmos 3 this winter, I was overall pleased with Scott’s extra little hook on the end of the external lean lock bar. While clever, given just the right cuff angle and conditions the hook can occasionally be an extra barrier to full seating of the lean lock bar. As with all external lean lock bars, solution is to visually inspect the hook and bar as you switch modes, if in doubt about engagement, tap with your ski pole grip and consider the possibility of ice in the slot that might require manual “intervention.”)

P1040474-copy

Many external lean locks have just a slot that engages a horizontal pin. Such have proven to be okay, but why not a little insurance against the lean lock getting banged and disengaged? Celeste III boasts this little hook (pictured is that of the Cosmos 3) to keep your good side up. For touring mode it disengages when you pull the string.

Another minor gripe I had with the Celeste 2 was the shell’s removable boot board (the spacer between liner and shell, at the sole) was plastic and broke in half. This was easily fixed with duct tape, but happily, Scott upgraded the boot board in the Celeste III. The revamped boot board is made with a resin impregnated mesh, co-molded with a denser plastic material at the heel. The resin impregnated mesh is fairly common as ski boot spacers and boot boards but having it co-molded with the denser plastic in the heel is a nice touch.

Boot boards are a favorite here at the WildSnow mod shop. They allow some customizations as well as slightly increasing warmth. In this case the boot board is nearly flat with no built-in arch. That’s an important feature for custom boot fitting, as adding material and custom shaping for the foot is easy when you start from neutral.

Celeste III boot bed.

The Celeste III comes with Scott’s “Power Lite Liner.” I have big calves, a wide fore-foot and a normal heel. As Julia mentioned in her overview of new women’s boots for 2017/2018, Celeste is one of the widest backcountry boots. It fits my foot well and I especially like the aggressive built in L-pads. They keep my heel nicely anchored and with no blisters.

Perhaps the most ingenious feature is the locking lace mechanism. I like my inner boots loose for the uphill and tight for the downhill. Maybe I never learned how to tie my tennies properly when I was a kid, but a normal shoelace knot doesn’t work for me. It either loosens too much or if I do a double-knot, it is time consuming to undo for ascending the second lap.

Scott’s nifty locking mechanism works so well that if they were ever sold separately, I’d buy them by the dozen for my street shoes. They lock down tight and loosen up easily. It’s a flat plastic piece so it doesn’t add a gap under the tongue. You have to see it for yourself to fully understand how functions but believe me, it is exceptional.

Conclusion: Bear in mind this is a “first look” of the actual retail version, prior to our extensive testing (soon to occur?). Near as we can tell, the bugs have been worked out of the Celeste, what remains is to enjoy this basic but clearly effective offering from Scott.

Teton Gravity Research – Rogue Elements

 

Since the dawn of time, everything that has lived and breathed on this planet has been subject to the whims of Mother Nature. The nature of an adventurer is inherently rogue; typically wild in character, subject to the fancy of their imagination. We are unequivocally drawn to nature’s rawest fury and deepest mysteries. These are the irreverent souls who pursue the edge.

In the winter of 2017, the magnitude of winter’s force was on full display. Telephone poll-snapping storms pounded the Wyoming landscape. Regions to the west, recently left arid and forgotten, were gifted with unprecedented accumulation. Blizzards in Europe buried towns in an instant before disappearing just as fast, leaving the lucky few who were there to wonder if it even happened. A Bolivian expedition found grace above 18,000 feet before the elements went rogue and the humans reluctantly heeded warnings from above.

Join the TGR team as they embark on an adventure filled with fury and glory, and witness the unimaginable.
