An insider’s guide to how we test

FAQ

Q. How does the test process work?

A. SKI’s gear test is the most comprehensive, objective test in the ski world. Before we hit the snow, we spend countless hours discussing categories that mesh with what the manufacturers offer and that help consumers identify what’s right for them. Manufacturers then decide which model to enter in each category.
