Years of Testing for SKI Magazine

Skiing Style / Foot Shape

  • Aggressive skier with a race background that shows–she'd rather be on edge than sliding around on the base of the ski. Short turns are her jam, and she spends most of her time off piste. 
  • Preferred boots: High-volume, stiff boot (120+ flex) with a forward stance. 

Opinions about Fellow Testers

  • "Renee Geary rips--wouldn't want to be up against her in the race course. Xanthe Demas shreds and tackles crud like it ain't no thang.
