Scott Scrapper Ski Test Results 2016 ReviewSeptember 16, 2015
- Solid platform
- Good float
- Good stability
- Very stiff tail
- Not as responsive
- Slower edge to edge
Scott's Scrapper has good float and a solid platform for excelling deep powder, but its stiff tail and slower responsiveness had our testers looking for livelier skis.
A ski made for big days and biggers skiers, Scott’s Scrapper is a monster of a board with twin tip rocker, a full length wood core, and Scott’s 3Dimension Sidecut for better stability and increased power. As such, it felt like an oversized GS board with a penchant for big turns created through a heavy steering and pressuring motion which required more effort–and expertise–on the part of the skier. This felt especially true when pushing each arc through the Scrapper’s stiff tail.
This is not an easy ski to turn, and testers did comment on its lack of responsiveness. On firm snow, you can’t wait to get back to the lift. Better suited for aggressive skiers who expect to ski it almost exclusively in deep snow.
