The RAMP Groundhog Skis are an ode to your neighborhood butcher, but instead of carving up meat, this baby slices and dices the hardpack. Testers enjoyed the “pleasantly tight turns” had upon these rippers. A straighter sidecut in the heel area increases edge hold where you need it, while its stiff, flat tail helps power through turns. In that regard, one tester noted its “turn initiation is supreme due to aggressive sidecut. Carves like a dream.” A wide 142 mm shovel and early rise tip help the Groundhog blast through crud and perform in soft snow, while a double layer of Kevlar (in sizes 179 and up) helps absorb vibrations.
