The Scrapper is a new powder-specific twin-tip in the Scott Freeski collection, replacing the Dozer and MegaDozer. It's the biggest ski Scott makes, with a 124 waist (in the 190 cm length). It's a stiff, wood-core laminate construction with no metal (too heavy for a ski this wide) and a sidecut that prefers long arcs and wide open spaces. Full-length vertical sidewalls give it solidity on edge. Scott's 3Dimension Sidecut breaks the ski into three sections, with a straight section underfoot and traditional sidecut radii in the tip and tail. This is designed to improve stability at speed and give the ski a playful, easy-pivoting feel. Designers gave it a moderate dose of rocker in the tip and tail, just enough to loosen it up and smooth the ride in broken snow. As with many Scott models, the waist width and tip/tail dimensions vary from length to length to provide consistent performance throughout the size run.
