Blizzard Zero G Race Ski

The Zero G Race Ski is Blizzard's first attempt at designing a plank specifically for randonnee racers, and we'll be a monkey's uncle--or maybe a slow backcountry skier would be a better metaphor in this instance--if we didn't think Blizzard absolutely nailed it. It boasts a staggering weight of one single pound; yep, you read that right: one pound (and eight ounces if you want to be picky about it). If you aren't salivating yet, then you must not care about grams. Blizzard built the Zero G Race out of a full, poppy, poplar wood and ultralight isocore foam for an optimal uphill performance. As for the downhill, Blizzard integrated its brand-new, top-of-the-line Carbon Drive stringers to allow an unprecedented downhill performance. That doesn't mean you'll float down deep powder or cruise couloirs with ease--due to its skinny 65mm waist--but you will get that pesky downhill part out of the way so you can get another lap in before all those slow backcountry skiers get a chance to summit your skintrack.

October's Featured Park
Arches National Park is known for its' remarkable natural red sandstone arches. With over 2,000 catalogued arches that range in size from a three-foot opening, to Landscape Arch which measures 306 feet from base to base, the park offers the largest concentration of natural arches in the world.
October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
