Groomers have never been Scott’s strong suit, but that all changes this year with this new addition to the Slight line. From the moment testers clicked in, they were impressed by how effortless carving up the frontside became, calling it a ski for women of all abilities. Thanks to a new full-length air-channel wood core combined with Scott’s 3Dimension Sidecut and progressive Pro-Tip rocker, the Slight 83 W is incredibly agile and forgiving, both on hardpack and in tight places like bumps and trees. 

STRENGTHS: Quickness, Playfulness

WEAKNESSES: Crud Performance, Versatility
