Snowbird, really any canyon along the wasatch front, Salt Lake City, UT

Pat Guinn's Bio

I grew up at the base of Little Cottonwood Canyon in Sandy, Utah and I love to ski and rock climb. During the winter I can be found at Snowbird searching for powder. I still live in the Salt Lake City area and spend all my free time in the canyons either climbing or skiing or hiking whenever I'm not working here at backcountry.com.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I tried a sample of the Coconut Cashew Chocolate Chip flavor and it was alright. Pretty good flavor. The texture was interesting and kind of threw me off, and it wasn't the easiest to eat, it was pretty chewy and generally left my mouth a little dry, definitely best eaten with water. Overall it was decent, but I'm not sure if I would go out of my way to purchase one of these, but I would probably eat one if it was given to me.

If you are looking for a daily hydration mix that will keep your electrolytes up and your pee clear, look no further! I bought this for my ill grandmother to use during her recovery and it worked like a charm! So buy this for you, your grandmother, your significant other, really anyone looking for a day to day hydration solution and you won't be disappointed!

I have sampled all sorts of Kate's bars and this one was by far the most unique. I love the coconut in it, makes for a very different, but very delicious taste. These are also made with the finest ingredients, so you really cant go wrong. I am not personally afflicted, but I have some gluten intolerant friends that love these bars. You really can't go wrong.

I purchased this excellent product right before a long camping/hiking trip and I could not be more pleased. I got the lemon and lime flavor, and while the flavor isn't overpowering, like gatorade or other artificial sugar laden alternatives, it tastes delicious and makes you want to drink and drink fast, delivering your body with good natural sugars and even some salts to help your cells rehydrate quicker. This stuff was awesome for hydrating for long day hikes, and rehydrating afterwards.

I tried my first Kate's bar a couple of weeks ago and I have been hooked ever since. These are way tastier than Clif bars, and cheaper than the ProBar equivalent, while still being made with quality, healthy, organic ingredients. Try one! They're delicious. I have had every flavor and they are all great. I especially like the bars that feature dark chocolate, but you really can't go wrong.

I just bought a box of these and am so incredibly happy with my decision. Whether you are hiking, climbing or ski touring, throw some of these in your pocket and any time you are feeling low on energy just throw one of these chewy gummies in your mouth and within minutes you will have your second wind. I have tried the Strawberry, Mountain Berry and Cran-Razz and of those three the Cran-Razz is probably my favorite, but they are all very tasty, and I'm sure the flavors I haven't tried are just as good.

I have been buying these as ski and hiking snacks for the last few months and they are great. They are super tasty and also give me the energy I need on the fly. They are super thin so i always keep one in my ski jacket for when i need that extra little kick. Stopping for food on powder days is for the foolish, these keep me going so that all of the powder are belong to me.

I just got this harness a couple of weeks ago and it's sweet!!! I really like the chest cam point of view, the angle is sick while skiing since your core doesn't bob up and down as easily as your head with a helmet mount, so the shot is generally more stable. It is also really nice since you can see the screen on the gopro and know when it is recording, what mode it is in and all that good stuff. This harness is burly, made with thick elastic straps and burly plastic, I dont see this breaking anytime soon.

The only issue I have had so far is on particularly deep powder days sometimes the camera gets caked with copious amounts of snow from epic face shots. On those days it is probably better to go with a helmet cam. Then again I wasn't complaining on account of the epic face shots.

In conclusion, if you dont like looking like a teletubby with your helmet mount and still like to get sweet footage, try this out!
