In a mere ten weeks, Alta will be open for skiing! You might be in the market for new gear this season and wondering what to get. With the wide range of different skis, boots and manufacturers, making a decision can be overwhelming. Most of us don’t have the opportunity to try different skis before making a decision of what to buy. This is where you can turn to resources and look at reviews from skiers who tried the new equipment and share their opinions.
Powder Magazine Buyer’s Guide compiles reviews of over 300 products from 32 skiers. This includes skis for powder, all mountain, women’s skis, and boots and bindings.
The On The Snow Buyer’s Guide includes reviews of skis from 22 skiers who tried them out last spring.
From this point, you might be able to narrow it down to one ski or maybe a couple. Still uncertain? Try demoing some skis. The Powder House next to Alta Lodge will apply the price of two demos to the purchase price of new skis.
