SKI mag's 2013-14 Ski Test at Snowbird: May the Best Skis Win

SKI testers start pounding the snow today as part of the week-long evaluation of next year's skis in the industry's toughest test. And eight inches of fresh doesn't hurt a bit...

Today is the first day of SKI testers cranking out big vert as the industry's most comprehensive week of gear tests starts at Snowbird, Utah. That means hundreds of test cards, lots of sore quads and, well, passionate shop talk deep into the night. And there's even eight inches of fresh at the 'Bird. Here's the final list of skis we’ll test.

Armada's flagship women's park ski, the ARW is designed to be used everywhere. The ARW utilizes full camber, traditional sidecut, and a flex pattern perfect for landing big jumps or lapping run after run. It's got a lighter weight core and soft flex for she-shredders too.
