2010 Ski Testing

2010 backcountry ski and powder ski testing

It is ski testing season here at Off-Piste. Backcountry and powder specific skis are rolling into our office every day. The recent blast of winter here in the northwest gave us an opportunity to get out in some good deep snows on on the Armada JJ and the Voile Drifter.

Both skis served up fine perfomances and both are incredibly light at under 9lbs per pair (without binders) given their 120+mm waist dimensions. It was expected that the Voile would weigh in light, but the Armada was the surprise at only 8lbs 10oz pair.

Testing begins in earnest next week and I have some great shots from a recent hut trip to Powder Creek Lodge in BC to post next.
