BEST ON AND OFF PISTE


Full Tilt Konflict ski boots When choosing a ski boot, looks, colour and brand should


all be ignored. You want to buy a boot that fits your feet the best and helps you perform to the best of your ability. I have finally found my perfect fit with the Full Tilt Konflict, a high-performance freeride boot that can tackle any conditions anywhere on the mountain. Full Tilts boast three-piece boot technology along with intuition foam liners, which mould 100 per cent to your feet. The


Konflicts are also up to 900g lighter than other boots.


Remember Raichle boots? Well, Full Tilt are the new Raichle, but better! £340, www.skibartlett.com

Orage Gibson pants With all the same technical features as





the JP Auclair Retallack Co-Lab jacket (right), the Gibson pant has a removable bib, making it ideal for all weathers – stay dry during the deepest-winter powder days, then whip the bib off for warmer springtime conditions. £379, www.skibartlett.com


Skiing kit isn’t all about the latest fashions. For serious skiers it’s about having the best kit to get the most out of the snow – as well as staying safe. Whistler BC winter resident Stefan de Laune shares his absolute must-haves


Armada JJ skis Armada changed the game when they


introduced the JJ in 2008. The most notable feature is the freeride rocker – where rockered tips and tails combine with positive camber underfoot to aid flotation in soft snow and provide remarkable edge control in the harder stuff. If I had to choose one ski for the rest of my skiing career, this would be it. This winter we see the introduction of the VJJ, specifically designed for women, and the AKJJ, which is 5mm wider than the JJ, stiffer and 10cm longer, and is built for big mountain turns at speed. £519.99, www.armadaskis.com
