Gallery: Hundreds of 2015 park skis put to the test at Copper Mountain

April 16th, 2014 by

 

The 2015 Park Ski Test rolls on. Tuesday was a true beaut’ of a day here at Copper Mountain: 45 degrees, blue skies, plus soft, freshly groomed snow in the park—complete with a smorgasbord of jibs.

In the same way that we rate skis at our All-Mountain Ski Test, utilizing our custom web app, our ski testers jump on a new pair of boards, spin a lap or two, and with a good feel for the ski, rate that model on a scale of 1-5, in categories including carving, stability, swing weight, playfulness, versatility and overall stoke. The collective scores and comments serve as the basis for selection of our Editor’s Picks in the annual Buyer’s Guide.

And take note: we’re hooking up one full, free week of summer camp at Woodward at Copper, plus a new GoPro HERO3 for the best ‘gram tagged #FreeskierFanFest. For rules on how to play, click here.

A HUGE thanks to this years #FREESKIERFEST park test sponsors: anon for supplying goggles and all-important helmets, Kicker for keeping our tunes flowing on and off the hill, and to Booster for keeping everyone securely in their boots, and of course Copper Mountain for taking care of our motley crew.
