Whats this year's favorite ski rental?

At the Lion in Vail we chose the Brahma 88 will give you the ability to seize the snowpack throughout the most frigid temperatures and firm conditions. Compared to its wider brethren in this category, the Brahma 88 utilizes its TrueBlend Woodcore, two sheets of metal and reduced rocker profile for a better grip on harder snow but is versatile enough for a variety of snow conditions. This ski will take the energy you give it and transfer that power into the snowpack, so you can rip down the mountain with confidence and ease. As the day’s smooth terrain gets eaten up by hungry skiers, the Brahma has the backbone to ski efficiently through chopped up crud, which means you’ll be skiing longer (and stronger) than everyone else. Enjoy the day – all day, ski the Brahma.

How I ended up in the Valley:  I’m a basketball player from South Carolina and I discovered my love for the mountains about 24 years ago. It was at that moment I knew I had to answer my calling and move out West! I’ve been in the valley since 2010 and with Venture since 2015. I wouldn’t change it for the world, it is the best crew to work with and I truly consider these guys and gals my mountain family.
