Every season, without fail, our Ski Test is one of the best weeks of the year. This year is no exception; the FREESKIER squad, along with ski testers and representatives from the top ski companies, took to the slopes of Snowbird to review over 250 pairs of next season’s skis. The very best will be featured in FREESKIER’s 2018 Buyer’s Guide—available now for a crazy-good deal.
But, until you can hold that magazine in your hands, you can enjoy tons and tons of Instagrams from the greatest week ever and fuel the stoke.

Did the ice bucket challenge today during #FreeskierFest for my man @garywyman to help raise awareness for ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) and encouraging people to help support Gary's journey as he was recently diagnosed with this devastating disease. You can help by going to his website www.teamgarbear.com Please read below for his story, info, and ways to support. 🙏 Gary was recently diagnosed with ALS. He received the news in December, a little less than 4 months after getting married to his wife Katie ( @batlashes ). What began as seemingly minor symptoms of twitching, weakness in the hands, and slurred speech, has now revealed itself as a full blown terminal illness for which there is no cure. For those unfamiliar, ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, affects the motor neurons in a person's brain and spinal cord, causing muscles to rapidly waste away. ALS patients don't, however, experience any deterioration of the mind, and instead must endure remaining totally aware as the disease robs them of all bodily functions. Unfortunately, after only a few months after diagnosis, Gary is already experiencing major deterioration in his speech, his ability to walk and accomplishing simple daily tasks. While there's hope for treatment and remission for those suffering with cancer, there is no stopping ALS. Once it hits it keeps progressing until the person afflicted is paralyzed and unable to communicate entirely. Gary's life expectancy is 2-5 years. He will soon be wheelchair bound and will require the care of an in-home nurse to assist him in making sure his needs are met while his wife is at work. The medical bills will continue to pile up. We ask that you join us and make a donation and please visit the website link in profile. Any amount would be greatly appreciated. In addition @icelantic_skis and friends will be hosting a fundraiser in Denver in April so please come to the Ogden on April 13th at 7:00 PM for music and raffles to raise awareness. If you work for a company that is able to make a donation of cash or products to auction, please email them through the website and let them know. WWW.TEAMGARBEAR.COM. Love you so much Gary!
