All-mountain skis put to the test amid warming temps in Aspen, CO
With a bit of fresh snow to work with early this week, we successfully tested all of the fat skis we have on site for #FreeskierFest.

The warm weather and current snow conditions make it ideal for us to test the all-mountain skis: versatile planks, generally on the skinnier side, capable of handling all sorts of conditions. At least, that’s what they’re supposed to do. Our testers will be the ultimate judge. Testers like Pat Sewell here…
