After receiving nearly 12 inches of fresh pow overnight here in Breckenridge, day two of #FREESKIERtest proved to be a success. The Breckenridge park crew came through yet again, grooming and raking the Park Lane terrain park into a thing of beauty. The fresh dump of snow provided for soft landings and the bluebird skies popped shortly after lunchtime, providing for an afternoon of epic shred. Our team powered through another huge batch of next year’s top skis, reviewing the latest and greatest from a slew of manufacturers.
With loads of data (ski reviews) accumulated, our editorial team will now sift through the results; the scores and comments will ultimately provide us with our list of Editor’s Picks, to be displayed in the 2016 Buyer’s Guide, available this fall.
For a glimpse of the action, check out the updated gallery above and peep one of our favorite ‘grams from the week, below.
