Review: Norrona's Skibotn Gore-Tex Pro Jacket Has Hidden Hand Covers
@Primoz: raceface trigger are the longest shorts I've owned. They're super light weight though and not at all waterproof if you're looking for something to wear in the rain.

@jaydawg69: noble if you're shuttling. Those who prefer to climb singletrack to fun stuff will prefer Kal Lake.

@Primoz: I'm 6'5 (196cm), so I know exactly what you're talking about. My knees are always out.

Riding in Vernon is legit awesome. Kal Lake has great trails but Ellison/Predator has really stepped it up in the last few years.

Beyond the Bike Park: 5 Family Friendly North American Resorts
@SunPeaksResort: I read the master plan, and sounds awesome. That'll be a solid competitor to Silverstar, for sure.

Review: Norrona's Skibotn Gore-Tex Pro Jacket Has Hidden Hand Covers
@Primoz: Yeah the Agent jacket and shorts have to be some of the worst MTB specific gear ever. So terrible. Also a regrettable buy was a pair of Royal Matrix "waterproof" shorts. Basically just really heavy material that isn't waterproof. So it just takes longer for the water to reach your body, I guess? Everything gets a little waterproof by applying some DWR spray but it's hardly as effective as an actual waterproof shell.

Beyond the Bike Park: 5 Family Friendly North American Resorts
@SunPeaksResort: Nice! I had heard new things were in the works. Level Up is an awesome entry level trail, rode it last summer. Any update on the xc trails where you can pedal to? Heard that was in development too.

Yeah I agree. The riding at Silverstar is far more family friendly than Sun Peaks. The new easier trails aren't even built yet as far as I know.

Review: Norrona's Skibotn Gore-Tex Pro Jacket Has Hidden Hand Covers
Over the years I have bought so-called waterproof jackets from Raceface, Sombrio, MEC, etc...they're all utter trash and barely lasted one season. The Sombrio jacket didn't even last a single day. Wetted through in less than 20 minutes on a hiking trip and I was cold and miserable for three days. Contacted Sombrio customer service to complain how their advertising is way off, or maybe I had a lemon of a product. Never heard from them. I've spent way more on these garbage products than the cost of this Norrona jacket. These more expensive jackets from Endura, Arcteryx, Norrona, Gore, Patagonia, etc, are worth every penny when you're stuck in the cold rain for hours/days. And most have a lifetime warranty. Bunch of my ski friends who bought a high end shell 15 years ago either still have it or they've gotten replacements for free if they ever did fail in any way. I bought an Endura MT500 this spring and it's a million times better than anything else I've owned, and honestly not even that much more expensive. I'll be grabbing an Arcteryx shell for the ski season too.
