Speed-Dating 19 New Skis for 2018-2019

See the quick summary of first impressions of 19 different skis for the 2018-2019 season from smaller brands brave enough to rent booth space at the retailer demo day at Stratton, Vermont.  We skied some new models from these companies:

  • DPS
  • Black Crows
  • Liberty
  • Sego
  • Meier
  • Stöckli
  • LibTech
  • Icelantic

There is some exciting news from several companies with new models as well as modifications to existing models. We had three days of taking two or three runs on a great collection of new skis in conditions ranging from ideal packed groomers to foot-deep powder snow, so it was a perfect test-fest.
