This Year's Skis

Here are ALL the skis we tested at last winter's ski test. See anything you like? Over the next few weeks we'll be showing you which skis out editors liked best, and why. On October 26, we'll introduce our personalized gear finder, which will allow you to find your perfect ski based on where you ski, how you ski, and how you want to ski.

Crested Butte is best known for two things: gnarly terrain and locals who aren’t afraid to let their freak flags fly. The Seven Hours of the Banana is both of those things to a T. Teams or individuals race to see how many  laps they can make on the steep, bumpy and narrow Banana , off of the Silver Queen lift in (duh) seven hours. Costumes are strongly encouraged, and it benefits the Adaptive Sports Center and Crested Butte Ski Club.Register here.
