Test 2015 – Slalom

PRECISE, HIGH-PERFORMANCE SKIS FOR SHORT TO MEDIUM TURNS Slalom skis are short, fast-’n’-furious, high-performance rippers for technical mutants and fearless athletes—and therefore, they’re ideally suited for the small-mountain, riverbank ripper or the ice-pack bump-bobbler. The blender smoothies offer precision and excitement with more sidecut than any other type of ski. Their construction provides greater torsional … More »

 Ski Canada Test 2015 reports now online   BIG MOUNTAIN Like the name says—and beyond Our freeride category continues to test the limits, through the trees, under the ropes and more.

Test 2014 * Cruisers

MID-RANGE PERFORMANCE IN LONG AND SHORT TURNS I don’t mean to oversimplify here—obviously standing on a moving platform careening down a hill of frozen water at high speeds, while trying to maintain an illusion of control and style, takes skill. But the truth is, skiing isn’t rocket science. There are other things in life that … More »

Ski Canada Test 2014 – Big Mountain

Like the name says—and beyond written by Erin Keam in Fall 2013 issue The lineup of big, wide, long skis designed to tame the mountain’s endless terrain beyond the groomers is only getting bigger and better.

Ski Canada Test 2014 * Slalom

Precise, high-performance skis for short to medium turns The trend in skis lately seems to be leaning more toward the freeride side of the fence. We’re seeing wider profiles, more twintips and longer-radius geometry—essentially skis that are designed to be jacks-of-all-trades. Admittedly, not every skier will have a need for a modern slalom ski, still … More »

Ski Canada Test 2014 – Expert All Mountain

All-terrain cruising, long and short turns This is one of Ski Canada’s most anticipated categories. Expert All-Mountain skis are loved by the best resort skiers in the west, but also by many easterners who know how to rip. By definition, they’re expected to do everything and to be tested aggressively. They may have been borne … More »
