Background: A product of Colorado, Sami began learning the ways of the force (skiing) from her uncle who spent a vast majority of his time in the backcountry of Steamboat Springs. She carried that knowledge through university, balancing college courses with skiing and a budding career in the outdoor industry. Soon after college, Sami made the pilgrimage to the Pacific Northwest, landing at the U.S. Outdoor Store where her drive for all things outdoor and unique sense of humor instantly connected with the culture.
Conditions on test day: 5" new snow, 31 degrees, heavy winds, wind tossed pow.
Rockin' the 175's at the demo at Mt. Bachelor, these were by far my favorite skis in the two demo days. We finally got some snow and I REALLY didn't want to give these ones back. The early rise tips made for a smooth, fun, and forgiving ride - while the slow rise tail rocker enhanced my experience in the crud and deeper snow. They were springy and playful on moguls, and with little camber they floated great in the deeper snow. My turns felt easy and controlled, never forceful.
With a windblown icy summit, I almost couldn't tell when I hit ice on these, especially compared to most other skis I tried that day. They kept their edge like a champ. they are lightweight, but not so light that I couldn't control my turns, like most other lightweight backcountry skis out there.
I didn't get to take them touring, but I couldn't imagine a more versatile and appropriate ski for an enjoyable ride up as well as a solid ride down. I am excited to get these back up on the hill!
