Powder Buyer’s Guide 2021 Steep and Deep When the snow won’t stop, neither should you. Gear made for chest-deep blower starts with fat skis and ends with the clothing that keeps you warm and comfy no matter the weather. Whether you find it in the trees a few metres from the run or deep in … More »

Faction Prodigy 2.0X ski test

SKI TEST 2021 FACTION PRODIGY 2.0X * FREERIDE * WOMEN BEST FOR: Lettin’ ‘er loose in wide-open terrain This “freestyle all-mountain” ski wasn’t as playful and surfy or hard-charging as some Official Test Skis in this category. But it filled the sweet, middle ground in between with a lot of fun, riding on edge one … More »

Buyer’s Guide 2021 – Freeride

If you’re a freerider, you’re a searcher, an explorer. You aren’t content with what’s on the map. The runs are just the approach to the main event. You take the road less travelled in search of untracked snow, of course, but just as much to know what’s over the ridge, behind the trees or around … More »

Nordica Santa Anna 104

Ski Test 2021 NORDICA SANTA ANNA BEST FOR: A freeride buddy.  Women. The “Free” version of the Santa Ana is the hippy sister of the family. It shares the same lightweight balsa wood core as the regular Santa Ana’s, but has a softer and more rounded tip and tail. And as the Free models get … More »

Progressive Freeride

Progressive Freeride 2020 Progressive freeride: the buzz phrase is about turning big-mountain into a playground.

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 »
