Welcome to the Snowfit/Revolutionz

Ski Review of 2019/2020 Season Skis

 

Having attended the Snowsports Industry of Great Britain (SIGB), on snow, Ski Test in Pila back in 2003 we felt that the experience, particularly the opportunity to test similar skis one after the other in the same/virtually the same snow conditions was invaluable in helping us choose which skis to stock.

Seventeen Winters on and we were back testing again in Pila.  With over 400 different skis personally skied by me over those seventeen years, let alone the full Snowfit Test Team (recently numbering 6 -10 skiers on each SIGB test) we have certainly not changed our minds on how valuable that testing is, both for us and for our customers. 

We feel we now have an exceptional wealth of knowledge and first-hand skiing experience that enables us to provide extremely relevant info to anyone looking at purchasing new skis for this coming winter.  We also run two, week long, “customer tests” each March to get a non-shop viewpoint on the coming season’s Skis and Snowboards, enabling us to work from a wide base of views.

 

Our very grateful thanks to our Suppliers who generously allow us to let our customers on these trips test their skis and help us with the ever more difficult task of choosing which skis not to stock. 

So, this year a huge thanks to Paul and Matt @Head, Mark @Scott, Dave @Volkl, Mark T, Andy P and James @Nordica/Blizzard, Robbie @Armada, Andy C @K2/Line, Rab @Fischer, Pete @Salomon and Scott @Dynastar,

 

On the back of all that testing, we summarise below a few key pointers that we think will give our customers the info they need to get that purchase right.

 

Whatever you choose, enjoy your Skiing and have a great season



Best wishes

KEY POINTERS:-

                              No Brand makes bad skis, it’s just some will suit your skiing better than others

 

The on piste performance of today’s All Mountain Skis is within a whisker as good as all but the very best specialist piste skis.

 

With the odd exception, even skis with waist widths of up to 110mm perform well enough on piste for you to “ski around with the family” in the confines of the resort and still have great fun.

 

Experience has shown that whilst many of us dream about skiing day after day of fresh powder, it seldom materialises, particularly in Europe.  Settling for skis with waist widths between say 80mm and 100mm therefore makes a lot of sense.  These will be narrow enough to be agile, yet, even at the lower end of the range have enough float for the occasional off-piste excursion and rather more than that as you get waist widths in the high 90’s.  Overall, they are just good at everything and are guaranteed to make you smile.

 

Remember, the most expensive skis won’t necessarily make your skiing better; they can demand more than your skiing can actually give and end up make it worse/less fun.

 

If you are lucky enough to encounter an organised Ski Test whilst you are away skiing, then do try to make the most of the kit that’s on hand. You’re probably best to treat “single brand on snow tests” as a useful bit of fun, as in an ideal world you really need to be able to ski different brands one after other to get a real comparison before you commit.  

However, failing that, there really is no substitute for talking with someone who has actually skied both the skis you already have (or have recently skied) and the ones you are contemplating buying.

That said, we feel there are some great “category skis” that deserve a special mention so here are our picks:-
