Ski Canada Test 2019 On-Slope Reviews FRIENDLIER DOG, BIGGER BITE Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? To make its Dobermann GS and slalom race skis a little more approachable without losing any of the performance, Nordica narrowed the width of the ski and eased up on the aggressive shape. The result … More »

Test 2019 – Head V6

Ski Canada Test 2019 On-Slope Reviews LYT IS RIGHT Normally the thickness of a ski tapers from thickest at the centre under the binding to thinner at the tip and tail.

Test 2019 – Rossignol Hero Elite Multi-Turn Ti

Ski Canada Test 2019 On-Slope Reviews PICK YOUR RADIUS The most approachable of Rossignol’s revamped line of race and high-performance carving skis is the Hero Elite MT Ti.

Chatter on Alpine Touring

As the interest in randonnée continues to escalate, so do the offerings of where and with whom. After a super-successful pilot project last season, the almost fully booked Chatter Creek Cat-Skiing has launched a new Guided Ski Touring program to run January through March.

Test 2019 – Deviation The Matrix

Ski Canada Test 2019 On-Slope Reviews GET LOST IN THE MATRIX The Matrix may be Deviation’s most groomer-focused ski, but it’s no one-trick stick.

Ready, Set, Go

For a few of us, the 2018-19 ski season has already begun; for most, there are still a lot of decisions to be made. But first, let me ask: How did you put your stuff away last spring? Are you the type who after your last run of the season carefully removes, dries and replaces … More »

Test 2019 – Fischer Pro MT 77 Ti

  Ski Canada Test 2019 On-Slope Reviews AN ENIGMA It’s hard to categorize the Fischer Pro Mt 77 Ti. It’s part of Fischer’s all-mountain ski line, combining a wood core with weight-saving carbon. But it’s also a 77mm-waisted ski with a full sidewall and Titanal. That sounds to us like a powerful on-piste carver. We … More »

Test 2019 – Elan Amphibio Black Edition

  Ski Canada Test 2019 On-Slope Reviews TAKE IT TO THE BLACK Like it did with its Ripstick freeride ski and Delight women’s carver, Elan designers upped the performance on its Amphibio frontside and all-mountain skis by adding extra carbon.
