18/19 All-Mountain & Frontside Skis (Ep.15)

We just finished testing a bunch of skis in Taos, and because of an unexpected closing-week snowstorm, we ended up getting on everything from heavy, modified race skis, to a new, extremely light big mountain ski. So Blister editors Sam Shaheen and Luke Koppa join me to go over a number of the highlights — including the new Atomic Bent Chetler 100, the HEAD Supershape i.Titan, a new carver from DPS, the Black Crows Orb, and what might be my new personal favorite ski from Blizzard.

  1. As my knees are toast and can’t handle off piste chatter. I’ve found a new friend in skiing groomers on dedicated front side/beer league non fis race skis. I really enjoyed listening to your comments about the 2 Head piste skis.
    Can you say a bit about how Fischer the Curv (booster plate model) compares to the Titan & i speed pro. I’m imagining / hoping it skis more like the I speed pro.
    Thanks for your insights ✋️✋️✋️
