Scott's The Ski is fantastic for easy arcing fall-line skiers who want to have fun on the bumps and the groomed. High performance rippers who want to push the threshold have plenty of other options in this category.

FULL REVIEW

Scott’s The Ski has present-day peformance with an old school feel. If you remember the Rossi 4S (one of the most popular skis ever built), with its easy turn initiation and fall-line fervor, then this is the ski for you. It’s easy to initiate, features great response–especially in short swing turns, where it excels–and makes butter out of the bumps as well. Bottomline: The Ski is really fun to ski.

If you’re looking for high edge angle and superior grip, then no. Our testers found it was easy to overmatch this ski, especially in GS or Super G turns, and especially for anyone who wants to get racy and technical. It’s a fantastic pick for skiers who just want to have fun with style.
