Just this last season, in the midst of one of the biggest storm cycles on record, Freeskier magazine and their devoted group of 40-plus testers had one goal in mind – to test and review as many new skis as possible. Over the course of one week and 53 inches of new snow, they floated through pow, ripped down groomers, and conquered all of the elements.
After a long summer of waiting, Freeskier just released their 2019-2020 Gear Guide, and with it, you’ll find hundreds upon hundreds of reviews on the latest gear. From all-mountain to big mountain, and park to backcountry Freeskier made sure to cover all of the bases.
We’ve been saying how we’re pretty pumped on this year’s line-up of LINE skis, and it looks like the testers over at Freeskier are too, because three of our skis ended up on the podium. Check out the skis that are being raved about below!
Taking home in the gold in the 115+mm Freestyle category is the all-new Outline. The newest creation from the mind of Eric Pollard, testers loved the Outline’s ability to turn, slide, and rip through powder with ease. Not to mention, the Outline took home the top-ranked ski overall with the score of 9.28.
Taking top honors in the 100-114mm Freeride Category is the all-new Vision 108. Testers loved the lightweight feel of the Vision paired with the ability to rip the entire mountain with confidence.
Taking the bronze in the 100-114mm Freeride section. Testers loved the versatility of the Sakana. With the ability to surf the deep snow or carve hard on the groomers.
