Test 2019 – Line Sakana

Ski Canada Test 2019 On-Slope Reviews SURF LIKE A FISH Last winter Line’s Pescado took the fishtail from surfing and snowboarding and applied it to powder skiing. The rooster-throwing Y-shaped tail and 125mm waist were so much fun the company decided to follow it up with a narrower version. The Sakana looks similar, but at … More »

Test 2019 – Renoun Citadel

Ski Canada Test 2019 On-Slope Reviews YOUR MOUNTAIN STRONGHOLD The Citadel is the widest of RENOUN’s three skis, yet it’s also the lightest and sometimes the stiffest. Like all RENOUN’s skis, the Citadel has stringers of HDT, the company’s proprietary vibration dampening polymer, inlaid into the core. It has the unique property of becoming stiffer … More »

Test 2019 – Fischer Ranger 102 FR

Ski Canada Test 2019 On-Slope Reviews A FRIENDLIER RANGER Ski Canada loved the stability, float and power of last year’s Fischer Ranger 98 Ti, so the introduction of a twintip, slightly wider Ranger 102 FR had us intrigued. Beyond the upturned tail, the biggest difference between the 98 Ti and 102 FR is less Titanal. … More »

Ticking the Boxes in Jasper

Notes from my last visit to Jasper: Tough terrain? Tres Hombres, Charlie’s Bowl, Cornice, Eagle Ridge and all that touring to be done down the Icefields Parkway…CHECK! Town life? Genuine unpretentious people, no splitting energy between town and a slopeside village, few chain stores, huge choice of restaurants, walkable surroundings (including home from après ski), … More »

Test 2019 – Skevik Anton 102

Ski Canada Test 2019 On-Slope Reviews LEGACY PROJECT The Skevik Anton 102 is the evolution of the ski that founded this favoured boutique brand from B.C.’s Okanagan. The Anton 122 was the first ski design Glenn and Gregg Anderson developed in their parents’ garage in Vernon. The boys have since moved out and expanded the … More »

Test 2019 – DPS Cassiar 94

Ski Canada Test 2019 On-Slope Reviews HAVE IT YOUR OWN WAY No single turn size or shape works when skiing the entire mountain, so DPS gave its Cassiar family of skis a variable sidecut. From a wide tip the curve of the ski progresses smoothly all the way to the centre of the ski, allowing … More »

Test 2019 – Rossignol Experience 88

Ski Canada Test 2019 On-Slope Reviews EXPERIENCE MAKE-OVER From tip to core, Rossignol reworked its popular Experience family of skis, merging knowledge from its freeride and race programs. From the fatter Seven skis comes a lightweight and rockered tip that floats in powder and initiates turns easily. From the Hero side of the family the … More »

Test 2019 – Elan Ripstick Black Edition

Ski Canada Test 2019 On-Slope Reviews ONCE YOU GO BLACK… Elan killed it with its freeride-inspired Ripstick last year. It pleased chargers and laid-back skiers alike, with dedicated left and right skis, tapered flex and lots of shape. This year Elan takes it to the next level by wrapping the wood core with extra sheets … More »

Test 2019 – Blizzard Rustler 9

Ski Canada Test 2019 On-Slope Reviews NEW RUSTLER IN TOWN Last winter Blizzard launched the Rustler family with two models, both more than 100mm underfoot. This season it introduces the thinner brother, the 94mm-waisted Rustler 9. Like the bigger sizes, the 9 uses a multi-layer wood core of poplar, beech, balsa and paulownia, and a … More »

Test 2019 – Renoun Endurance

Ski Canada Test 2019 On-Slope Reviews MOOD-READING SKI RENOUN says its HDT technology reduces chatter by 300 per cent, translating into an overall smoother, more stable ride in any conditions. The secret is a unique polymer laid into eight channels in the ski. The polymer changes in response to vibration, growing stiffer as vibration increases … More »
