It's Wes and Devin. PCTV took some time yesterday and interviewed them about Swarm, the Nectar and Elixir project, and using Kickstarter to launch a product. Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMJljUvmpNg
Swarm had the distinct pleasure of developing a product for a sport near and dear to our hearts- sidecountry skiing. What? You haven't heard of sidecountry skiing? Click through to learn more about the sport, and the equipment you will need.
Sidecountry skiing is all about accessing terrain at the resort when the lift doesn't get you there. Pristine glades, untouched bowls, powder 3 days after a storm, and giant cliff drops all open up when you do a little hiking. Check out the Facebook group to learn more.
But what do you do with your skis when you hike? Do you wear a backcountry pack all day? Do you shoulder them? Neither of these is the answer. That is where The Goat comes in. www.goat-ski.com
Swarm developed The Goat to be the tool you need to schlep your skis up the ridge effortlessly. You strap your skis in, and sling it over your shoulder just like a messenger bag. It holds your skis in place and out of the way so you can focus on climbing to the perfect spot.
When you get there, all you have to do is take The Goat off, and roll it up. It is small enough to fit in the goggle pocket in your ski jacket. Launch!
So why do you need The Goat? Well, what if you want to launch a huge cliff like this?
Go get The Goat, and ski!
See? I told you that we're all about youtube. First up- Devon riding SLC's best trail, Bobsled. Man, he is good. httpvhd://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hn7mEXeCQmc&hd=1
