    Comparison Review Thumbnail Reviews: 2017 All-Mountain 80-90mm Skis

    Living in the 80s isn't all about neon and Miami Vice. The 80-90mm category is going to be one of the most contested segments going into the 2016-2017 buying season. There is a ski here for everyone. You want something pure hard snow? It is here. You want something that is more off-piste...

    Comparison Review Thumbnail Reviews: 2017 Narrow (Sub-80mm) Skis

    This the first of many overviews of the upcoming 2017 ski offerings. These purpose-built designs want to be on firm snow and skied primarily on edge. After you buy one of these skis, and before it even touches the snow, give it some proper attention in the form of an aggressive tune. By this I...

    Individual Review Review: Volkl RTM 86 UVO

    Obtainable tenaciousness -- it is a mouthful, but it is the only way to describe the Volkl RTM 86 UVO in two words. Volkl has offered a flagship all-mountain frontside ski going back to the V-Werks RTM and Grizzly, but neither ski ever approached the performance of the new RTM 86 UVO. The new...

    What is your one manufacturer three ski quiver?

    If you could build your three ski quiver but only get to choose one manufacturer, who would you choose and what would that quiver consist of?

    Skis that you have bought more than one pair of?

    What skis have you had that were so good that you either stock piled or after you wore them out and just replaced them with the same ski again. Early on: Salomon 9000 3S, when slalom skis were still over 200cm...err PR8 in Salomon-ese Dynastar Course SL, light, lively but had to be replaced...

    Report from Loveland demos, November 2015

    Just got back from the demos at Loveland. Wanted to try possible replacements for two of my go-to skis: my everyday teaching skis (versatile, but biased toward the frontside with a waist around 80) that I can comfortably ski all day for six days straight(!) and a possible replacement for my...

    Individual Review Thumbnail Review: 2016 Volkl RTM84

    Without getting into technical designs that will make your eyes glaze over, “All New” has never rung more more true than with the 2016 Volkl RTM84. Over the years, Volkl has established a foothold in the all-mountain frontside category, and the newest RTM is a culmination of its previous...
