The mantra for Sammy is that if you look good on the hill, you’re going to feel good on the hill — in essence, making you more comfortable when you’re on the chairlift, in the lodge or shredding down the mountain. Bright colorways and fits tailored to a woman’s body make it much easier to find the fit and style that is unique to you. Plus, with Sammy’s fashion eye and Jodie’s endless smile, ladies will have the best, most comfortable shopping experience in town.
SBTM has made famous the saying “First chair, last call.” If that’s how you operate, Special Blend is the outwear for you. The perfect blend of street style and snow function has made this a staple in the shop. Also coming in on 21 years of operation, these guys aren’t spring chickens. Tried, true and tested, the mantra speaks for itself.
Layering is critical for everyone that wants to maximize their time on the hill, and remain there all day and night. Putting cotton against your skin will actually make you colder – when you sweat cotton retains the moisture and keeps it close. Performance-driven first layer (like Under Armour and Oakley) will wick the sweat away from your body and keep you warm and toasty. Not to mention, when you’re at home or in the lodge and you ditch your sweatpants, you’ll still be styling!
Ladies snowboards are built much like mens — they have the same alternate-camber technology and bells and whistles. However, because women generally have smaller feet/less body mass, women’s snowboards are built with a narrower waist width (the distance the board runs from toe to heel) and a lighter core (making it easier to decompress and handle).
Much like boards, women’s bindings have the same technology as men’s except they’re smaller to accommodate a women’s foot. Conventional two-strap bindings, like the ones from Union Bindings, give you more performance because you can adjust how tight you want to buckle down. Others, like the B-Real from GNU with Fastec, make it easier to get in an out. All preference!
What The Boardroom has found is that women often struggle when lacing up their boots. They don’t want to deal with the hassle of trying to get the laces tight enough so the boot fits properly. Catering to this, The Boardroom has moved away from traditional lacing and gone more towards power, zonal lacing (Salomon) and Boa technology (Salomon and thirtytwo).
