It was ski test time once again and Ski Canada’s test team was ready to roll. We were back for a second year at snow laden Fernie Alpine Resort to put some of Canada’s best ski brands through their paces.

This year the following brands met the challenge:

Atomic * Black Crows * Blizzard * Elan * Fischer * Head * Kastle * K2 * Line * Nordica * Ogasaka * Salomon * Volkl
