Freeskier’s 2012/13 All-Mtn Ski Test follows in wake of Microbrew Test

Comments by Henrik Lampert/

We kicked off our 2012/13 All-Mtn Ski Test today on Ajax Mountain in Aspen/Snowmass, CO, following in the wake of last week's Microbrew Ski Test. We tested skis made by skiing's smaller brands last week, and we're now diving into the skis made by skiing's bigger brands—Salomon, K2, Head, Volkl, Rossignol, Nordica, Atomic, Dynastar and many more.

We enjoyed blue skies and bright sunshine this fine Monday, and we expect more of the same between today and March 9. Throughout the week, we'll be testing hundreds of 2012/13 skis. Our testers will rate the skis in categories including versatilty, stability, carving, float and playfulness.

We'll be posting updates, photos, action videos and product preview videos this week to Freeskier.com, so stay tuned. Also, be sure to follow the hashtag #FreeskierFest on Twitter for the latest news,
