Hello fellow snow sliders. If you are like me, this is the time of year I start getting really excited when the winter sport magazines start arriving in my mailbox with the latest and “greatest” new gear and gear “reviews.” These magazines are full of gear from heated socks to the best ultra-lite, nano, backcountry hybrid, all-mountain mono-skis, snowboards and the like. I am sure you’ve heard it all before, “These boots are great for wearing all day while carving on the blissful corduroy” or “This is the best all-mountain ski in the category. This ski/snowboard kills the crud, holds an edge on hard pack and can float like vanilla ice-cream in root-beer.”

Having been in the snow-sports industry for nearly two decades and a stint as a sales associate for a major ski manufacturer, I read those reviews and implicitly have a couple questions:

Will that new heated self buckling boot work with my foot shape?
I get that the new all “mountain ski of the year” is great from the parking lot, to the mountain, and everywhere in between, but can it ski moguls too?

Keeping Track:  Where area stars meet their future

Despite emerging from the cage the victor during his last SFL America: Team Challenge bout, Burien's Brent Knopp still looks back on the event and cringes.

The reason?

Knopp, who defeated Adam Dehart by unanimous decision, was on the losing end of the team battle as Los Angeles bested his Seattle squad.

“It stills leaves a bad taste in my mouth,” Knopp said. “We’re looking for a different outcome this time.”
Knopp will once again lead Team Seattle when they take on Team Central Valley California at the latest edition of SFL America: Team Challenge on Oct. 22 at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma.

Knopp (7-1) faces Josh Clark (9-3) in a 192-bout main event. Fans may recognize Josh Clark from his time spent on the UFC reality show “The Ultimate Fighter” where he fought on the show’s 19th season with Team Penn.

The 8-bout card will feature two preliminary and six Seattle vs. Central Valley bouts, including one female flyweight bout between Seattle’s Liz Tracy (2-1) and Central Valley’s Christine Stanley (5-2).
