Background: Tim grew up in Portland and started skiing at the Powderhound Ski School at Mt. Hood at age 10. He moved to Bend after high school and got into freestyle and park skiing at Mt. Bachelor, and backcountry skiing in the surrounding area. Eventually Tim moved back to Portland and started splitting ski time between the more big-mountain technical terrain around Crystal Mountain and the playful terrain at Mt. Hood. Tim has been part of the US Outdoor Store family since 1998 working in the ski and snowboard service and repair, ski, boot & binding sales, and camping & climbing departments.
Being a big fan of the 2014/15 Sir Francis Bacon, everything I'd seen and heard about the ARV 106 made me think that it would be right up my alley as far as an everyday working ski goes. After riding it finally, I'm happy to report that it's pretty much everything I thought and hoped it would be: A ski that allows you to turn the whole mountain into your own terrain park, but can also cut into the actual terrain park with whenever it happens to be on your radar. The ARV 106 has a nice even flex that gets gradually stiffer under foot, traditional camber, minimal tip and tail rocker and a recommended mounting point around 6cm below center to make this an ideal all-mountain jib machine that rips no matter where you are. When it comes time to replace my 108mm Bacon's this will definitely be a top contender. I rode the 180cm and it felt right.
