Testing frontside and all-mountain skis today at the Skiing Mag ski test at Snowbird, UT. This is the Rossi Pursuit HP, which won ski of the year at last spring’s test.
A groomed portion of the test run before the lifts opened. Minty fresh and clean.
Deep thoughts with Kelli Gleason and Amber Gale on the Gadzoom Quad. Testers evaluate skis in nine categories, from Flotation to Forgiveness to Versatility. They also record their overall impressions of the on-snow performance, and what type of skier the particular model is best suited for.
Tester Greg Guevara samples the wind buff off Snowbird’s new Little Cloud high-speed quad.
Tester Amber Gale finds Snowbird’s Race Hill a perfect hard-snow test venue.
