To diversify our ski test team this year, we brought in guest testers. Olympians they were not, but you’d be hard-pressed to find a bunch more passionate about the sport. They followed the same protocol as the pros, filling out test cards and ranking their favorites, but we kept the scores separate for consistency’s sake.

Watch this site for results from the guest test, and for more information about future guest tester programs.
