“Riding the Head Kore 105 was an extremely invigorating experience. This ski was light, responsive and very quick edge to edge. I had to change my skiing style slightly to properly enjoy this ski, but after a few runs I found myself railing turns on the groomers and being able to make quick and confident moves off piste. The Kore 105 felt very solid on landings, and made it fun to catch air off of all the features I could see. But what I loved most about it was that the stiff and responsive flex pattern made me keep my focus, and rewarded me with awesome, powerful turns everywhere on the mountain.” –Kent Christensen

Your classic park-rat-turned-powder-skier, you might be able to guess which province Kent Christensen is originally from. The fast-footed, Ontario-born two-planker discovered his love for powder while going to university in Quebec, and moved to Revelstoke shortly thereafter, where he now pursues the deep stuff full-time in the winter. He earns his turns by the tree, planting as many of them as he can each summer to fund his ski season. As the president of the Revelstoke chapter of the conservation group Wildsight, Christensen’s thoughtful and caring character is all but obscured by the powerful smashiness of his full-throttle skiing. He’s a multi-faceted skier that shines in any kind of terrain, but with his tall stature typically rides a 190-centimetre, 110- to 120-millimetre-underfoot, flat or fully rockered ski.
