Scott Mega-Dozer (2013)
The Mega-Dozer feasted on soft snow and crud with low-effort smears and slashes. Then, on hardpack, it laid down a nice fluid arc but only after the skier provided generous angulation. Versatility is its greatest strength. "It's a pow ski with some all-mountain personality," said one Colorado tester. "It will perform just as well on the day after the storm," which is ideal when "you should have been here yesterday, bro." Notes: The fattest ski in Scott's collection is a twintip powder specialist. The Mega-Dozer comes in three lengths, each a different width, ranging from 114 in the 175 cm length to 124 in the big 195 cm. Obviously, those will be very different skis. It features what Scott calls Medium Twin-Tip Rocker, with a 400 mm section of early rise in the front and 300mm in the back. Scott's 3D sidecut breaks the ski into three sections, with a straight section underfoot and traditional sidecut radius in the tip and tail. This is designed to improve stability at speed and give the ski a playful easy-pivoting feel. It's a wood-core, metal free laminate construction.
