We spent last week at Aspen Highlands testing next year's boutique and indie brand skis. Reps from some of the companies gave us an on-camera rundown of what they have coming for winter 2011-12. Here are the videos.
We asked manufacturers to make the case for their best low-cost, high-performance models. As you read, keep in mind that the prices listed are suggested retail prices. Shop around and you’ll likely find these skis for a couple hundred bucks less than what’s listed.
