When Travis Steeger’s “Sponsor Me” video made the rounds in the office at Armada, it was met with unanimous acclaim. It stars a skier with undeniable skill, an ear to ear smile, and a contagious love for skiing and snow. Watching it provides the viewer with a palpable connection to Travis, his love of skiing, and his desire to explore the mountains and make turns wherever possible. Travis was only starting this exploration in skiing when his life was tragically cut short. Yet in this minimal time his energy and desire to explore helped shape this ski.
The TST is an all-mountain/big-mountain tool designed to let you explore the entire mountain; air the biggest cliffs, ski the deepest pow, and straight-line the steepest lines. With Armada’s Patented EST All Mountain Rocker that boasts a progressive tip rocker and no tail rocker, there isn’t a turn or jump on the mountain the TST can’t make. This is the ski Travis was asking us to make for his every day ski at his home mountain of Whitewater BC. So next time you find yourself in the middle of a great day, or on a perfect run, or are just surrounded by all your friends; un-zip your coat, smile from ear to ear, and giv’er for Travis. A portion of the proceeds of this ski are donated to Travis Steeger’s Memorial Fund and the “Avalanche Awareness Beyond the Boundaries Society”, which provides free avalanche skills training courses for youth.
