Test 2019 – Deviation The Proof

Ski Canada Test 2019 On-Slope Reviews PROOF POSITIVE Firmly on the all-mountain side of freeride, Deviation’s The Proof could be a one-ski quiver. Its 16m turn radius is snappy, and a 101mm waist can rip a groomer or bound through the bumps. Plenty of tip rocker and just a bit in the tail allow it … More »

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 »

RYAN REPORT – Panorama’s Monster Expansion

Six days after the last snowfall I drop into The Monster and sink up to my waist. For the next 10 minutes I work my way down the steeps, trees and rock garden in lightly tracked up powder. This is not what I expected to find during Christmas Break at Panorama Mountain Resort.   The … More »

Ski Canada Test 2018 – Freeride

Freeride skis are inspired by deep snow, high speeds and big airs. These are the sticks the crazy guys and girls ski on in the movies. But that doesn’t mean you have to have their skill to handle them. Sure, some are dialed for negotiated Alaskan faces, but others are just as happy carving on … More »
