2011 Rossignol S110W
Rossi unveils the S110W Freeski, one of the first women’s skis with rocker and reverse sidecut.
Rossi was among the first to incorporate rocker into a women’s ski (Voodoo Pro BC110). Now it unveils the S110W Freeski, one of the first women’s skis with rocker and reverse sidecut. Hence its funny shape: The tapered tip and tail smear better in the deep. With roughly the same dynamics as the hugely popular S7 (No. 1 in Men’s Deep Snow), the S110W is not built for versatility; it’s built to float effortlessly through feet of velvety powder, where it handles speed so well you hardly notice the trees are a blur. For deep-snow purists, it can’t be beat (No. 1 in Overall Impression).

Mammut Pulse Barryvox
A revolution in beacon technology, the Pulse gives you the ability to perform pre-search triage and find multiple buried victims quickly.

Editors note: Avalanche beacons are one of the most important factors when it comes to surviving an avalanche. Combined with a shovel, probe, skills to use this device, and knowledge of backcountry terrian, a beacon is crucial. Take an avalanche course before heading into dangerous terrain.

Line Prophet 115
The Line Prophet 115 fills a void previously left in the Prophet series. It's super fat, but still carves.
Line has seen immense success from their versatile Prophet series, with widths ranging from 90 mm to 130mm. Previously, the width options jumped from 100- 130mm underfoot, which left a big gap. Enter the Prophet 115. With P-cut technology, this ski seamlessly travels from groomers to powder. Early rise tip and tail allow easy turn initiation (read: they’re easier to ski), and help you float when it’s deep. A metal-structured core adds strength and stability.

Gear of the Week: Salomon Quest W

Gear of the Week: Salomon Quest W
Salomon Quest W main
The Salomon Quest W is an AT boot. But it doesn't ski like one.

Last season, I bought a very stiff, high-end alpine boot. A telemarker by trade, I was wary to jump headlong into stiff, uncomfortable boots. But I did. And I hated them. Like a wuss, I had to stop in the lodge to take them off— multiple times a day. I just couldn't get used to those boots.

Gear of the Week: K2 Rictor

Gear of the Week: K2 Rictor
K2 Rictor
Rocker technology has trickled down from the fattest powder skis, and will help you navigate everything from hard snow to choppy crud. Check out the K2 Rictor for a versatile ski with "speed terrain" rocker.
Where the AfterShock features K2’s “all-terrain” rocker, its little brother the Rictor gets “speed rocker.” Just the forward 10 percent is rockered—the rest is traditionally cambered. K2 pairs that profile with a huge tip and aggressive sidecut for an 80-mm ski that carves with enthusiasm but never talks back. It gets excellent marks in forgiveness—truly an everyday frontside ski an a worthy successor to the late, great Apache Recon.
