Adventure All Mountain 2012

ADVENTURE ALL-MOUNTAIN

All-terrain skiing, moderate speeds, medium turns
To match the expectations for this group, testing was not as fast or
aggressive as in the high-performance Expert All-Mountain category.
The same assessment of comfort in ungroomed snow was checked, with
special attention to such things as how balanced they felt (sweet spot)
and general good manners in less-than-perfect conditions. Testers want
these skis to respond to every demand, and also be manageable and
predictable. Waist 75-85.
