Izbo Prostix, manufacturer of fine hand-made graphite ski poles, is located in Vancouver, Washington. Galen Wells, President of Izbo Prostix (DHo&o), tells his story:
"While ski bumming in The Rockies the thought came to mind to have a ski pole grip that would quick release.
After returning home, I spoke with a friend who owns a pro shop on Mt. Hood and we talked about my new idea.
He told me of a big trade show in Europe called ISPO, but with his accent I thought he said "IZBO"...hence the name IZBO Prostix."
IZBO relies on the best technology in creating its graphite poles, using graphite tubing made by the number one supplier of graphite golf clubs to the PGA tour, the G. Loomis Company. IZBO put there poles into the hands of two of the most well know skiers in the industry and received kudos for producing a high performance graphite ski pole. IZBO Prostix makes the lightest and strongest ski poles on the market.360.604.7124. (DHo&o*)
You'll have a chance to taste the Clif Bar at the Human Ski-In 1997 in Breckenridge. Sign up for the Deadhead-to-head Slalom Fun Race at Friday nights Welcome and race regiistration party at Johsha's and get a free sample.
Clif Bar is baked in an oven by Kali's SportNaturals, Inc. in Emeryville, California. Here's their story&emdash;It's really simple: we created the Clif Bar because nobody else could. Years of bicycle racing, climbing, skiing and triathlons forced us to eat a lot of "high energy" foods that were so low on taste they were just plain hard to eat. And, Since we're bakers and we love good food, we thought we could do better.
We started with things that we knew people would like. Real fruit like apples and cherries, berries, figs and raisin. Flavors from real chocolate chips, real cocoa and gourmet coffee beans. And wholesome grains like rolled oats, corn meal, rice flour and oat bran.
The finished product is a delicious, chewy, low fat baked energy bar that delivers the kind of complex carbohydrates your body needs for peak performance. And the kind of flavor your taste buds deserve. Clif Bars are: high in carbos, low in fat, naturally sweet, 100% wheat and dairy free. You don't need to down tons of water to enjoy a Clif Bar and they stay chewy in cold weather!
Clif Bars come in seven natural flavors: Real Berry, Chocolate Espresso, Apricot, Chocolate Chip, Apple Cherry, Dark Chocolate and Fig Raisin. 1.800.884.KALI
