Still not a major ski brand, Scott keeps bulling its way into the thick of the medal results. Don’t be fooled by the American name; the brand is French-manufactured and rooted in the progressive freeskiing culture of the Alps. There’s always been a distinctively surfy/smeary feel to its skis, and it’s only more pronounced in the rockered Stunt. It was a tester favorite for making broken snow easy to ski and one of the tops for flotation. “Fun ski. Floaty, stable, reliable, likes to go fast,” said Woods.
