    Comparison Review DEMO DAY: Crudbusters for the Cascades, 88-90cm wide

    I’m not satisfied with the middle ski in my quiver of three: my Fischer Motive 86’s carve like a scalpel, but are too light for the dense crud we often get in PNW. It was a good day at Crystal Mountain for finding a better crud-buster. All morning we had a lot of challenging crud, but in the...

    Ski blowout- Stockli and Blizzard

    Hey everyone, Sorry I haven't been posting: I have barely been skiing. Too much going on in my life right now!

    Cage Match Comparison 2017 Head Monster 88 vs 2017 Stöckli Stormrider 88

    So in this Cage Match, we are matching the varsity quarterback against the prep-school crew captain. Yes, both, are athletic, smart, and segment leaders, but it’s how they approach and display their talents that separates them. Thank you @TimF for the suggestion. Walk into the Wobbly Barn...

    Cage Match Comparison 2017 Stöckli Stormrider 88 vs 2017 Kästle MX89

    Ah, the blue-blood brothers from other mothers. Few have skied either of these refined combinations of metal, wood, plastic, and rubber and thought, "Eh, they're just okay, I don't get what all the fuss is about." No, these skis are the reason skiers ask forgiveness after the purchase rather...
