March 15th, 2012 by

If you followed along with the hashtag #FreeskierFest during our 2012/13 All-Mtn Ski Test at Aspen/Snowmass, you were privy to much of the shenanigans that went on behind the scenes. Between Twitter and Instagram, hundreds of messages and photos flooded the cyberworld—a steady stream of news from the eyes of those who shared in the fun.

To relive some of our favorite moments, we've collected a handful of images that were shared throughout the Ski Test on Instagram. Enjoy!

About the 2012-13 All-Mtn Ski Test:

From March 5-9, we hired a huge group of rippin' ski-testers to put literally hundreds of 2012/13 skis to the test. We skied in every condition imaginable, from iced-over groomers to fresh powder. For a glimpse of what went down, drop in to our highlight video.

The results of the Ski Test will appear in the 2013 Freeskier Buyer's Guide—the biggest product guide in the business.

In the days leading up to the All-Mtn Ski Test, we sampled skis from some of skiing's smaller brands as part of our Microbrew Ski Test. We enjoyed four straight days of powder—and you can see some of the action here, in our Microbrew highlight video.
