If you are putting in the effort to show up on race day, you might as well have everything working for you. Obviously, your own experience and conditioning are critical, but your equipment can help. A lot.
To promote ski racing in Utah and to make sure you get the most from your equipment, Jans Mountain Outfitters and their race services division, Jans Rennstall, have sponsored the Intermountain Masters Race Program and the Jans Cup for the past 30 years.
THE RIGHT SKIS
Ski technology never stops advancing. With all the effort and money that is poured into national race teams, and the never ending push by manufacturers to have their skis raised above the podium, it is no wonder that race skis are changing with every season. The good news is that skis get faster, lighter, and more fun with each new release. The bad news is that racers need a new pair every couple of years to keep pace. There’s no way around it, racing is an expensive sport. But with the right skis, the reward can make your commitment well worth the costs.
Rennstall translates to “Race Room,” and Jans Rennstall is set up 100% around race skis and ski (and snowboard) tuning.
