I have been involved in product development for backcountry skiing for over 30 years.
After introducing the first cable binding designed for telemark skiing in the early eighties, I spent nine years as director of product development at Life-Link where I directed the development of Life-Link’s line of adjustable ski poles, shovels, probes and soft goods. I helped in the development for the adhesive for the Ascension line of skins, later becoming a partner in that company. I have spent the last 3 years developing the Climbing Skins Direct skin line, and believe we have the best skins on the market today.
