The 2020 FREESKIER Ski Test, lovingly referred to as FREESKIERFEST, kicked off on Monday with a bang—specifically, a six to eleven inch refresh on Aspen Mountain. After a full day of testing next year’s widest planks and feasting on a smorgasbord of Rocky Mountain blower pow, the skies cleared for picture-perfect, post-storm spring skiing for the next two days of testing.
Not a cloud in the sky, our testers showed up to the testing corral on top of Aspen Mountain on Tuesday morning hyped for the second day of testing and decked out in their wildest costume attire. With plenty of leftovers to scour, it was easy work trying out 100-110 mm freeride skis, set to hit shop shelves in the fall of 2020. The good vibes flowed from first chair all the way to après on the W Aspen’s rooftop Wet Deck for a good old-fashioned flip cup tournament with a pair of Dragon sunglasses, a champion’s trophy and bragging rights on the line.
Wednesday welcomed our group of 60 skiers with even more sunshine and textbook spring skiing conditions, absolutely perfect for sending big airs and poaching every last bit of fresh snow on next year’s best 100-110 mm freestyle skis. Stay tuned for more action from #FREESKIERFEST with more sunny spring weather forecasted for the rest of the week and the 85-99 mm freeride and freestyle categories to go.
