SKI Magazine – How We Test: 2012

Get access to everything we publish when you sign up for Outside+.

Ever wonder what goes into testing new skis each year? SKI Magazine Deputy Editor Joe Cutts takes you behind the scenes of the annual SKI Magazine ski test in Snowbird, Utah, and explains the methodology behind the most thorough, rigorous and objective ski test in the world. He tells us how skis are picked for testing, who gets to test them, how the categories are defined, and how a ski wins (or doesn’t win) SKI’s Magazine’s Gold Medal Gear awards.
