This is the time of year when I really need to buckle down and start to get Suburban Ski and Bike ready for the upcoming ski season. I know it seems a little early, but before you know it August will roll around and Ski Magazine's Buyer's Guide will be out. I was hunting around for ski reviews and other information with regards to ski categorization and found this article.
2013 Test Skis: The Field is Set
This season Ski Magazine is giving us a heads up on the 150 skis they've tested
We've done our own testing back in February at the Stratton On Snow Demo and I'm always interested in how Ski Magazine's results compare with ours. Most of the time I think Ski is spot on with their reviews but every once in a while I wonder if we were testing the same ski. This could be an East Coast vs West Coast since they test at Snowbird. Back in the day they used to do some testing at Sugarbush as well.
This is how they limit how many skis a manufacturer can send to the test. This gives Ski Magazine some wiggle room.
I'm not sure why K2 didn't send the new Bolt to be tested since it should have fared well in the Hard Snow category especially since it's the hard snow of Snowbird.
Anyhow it's back to work for for me!!

PS: I like to test powder skis!!
