FULL REVIEW

Ramp’s Groundhog gets high marks in soft snow and bumps-two of the hallmark conditions for a good all-mountain ski-where these boards were very easy to turn. Soft snow and crud were also a plus, as the ski’s responsiveness meant you could easily push it or schmear across the fall-line.

That same responsiveness felt downright squirrelly on hardpack though, and also on longer, hard edge holding turns. The ski is easy to overpower, and rewards a light touch wherever you take it. Try to drive this ski and you will be disappointed. Lighter, West Coast-raised all-mountain skiers will enjoy its responsiveness. Hard edgers will be underwhelmed.
