Ski, boot and other ski equipment reviews can help skiers planning ski equipment purchases, but not all reviews are created equal. Our ski reviews give you complete pictures of how skis perform and how that performance affects you, pictures compiled from the experiences of dozens of skiers–professional and non-professional alike–who test skis and boots each season from Vermont to California between January and May.

30-Second Ski Reviews© are distilled from comprehensive reviews in our Member Section, which has, say subscribers, "the best ski reviews available anywhere."
After reading our Member reviews, you’ll be able confidently to select ski models you want to try or perhaps we’ll give you that extra bit of information that makes you realize you must have this or that ski right now.
Beyond reviews—with links to top retailers who stock recommended models—we have articles on custom boot fitting, ski sizing, binding placement, ski tuning and equipment maintenance, outstanding accessories, high performance ski technique and more. We offer unique 1-on-1 personal consulting. Got a ski related question? Top pros answer it.
Ski reviews, blogs, technical articles and video clips here should prove useful. More is available by subscription; this section has about 15% of the content of our Member Section. We'll help you get the most fun per ski dollar. Whether you are just starting, a sometimes leisure skier, venerable veteran or working pro, we can help you find the best skis and other equipment and can help take your skiing to a higher level, often saving money in the process.
We know from years of experience the folly of trying to fit boots long distance—say, via the internet. We can tell you everything you need to know about boots, including their role in determining how well you’re able to ski on whatever ski you choose, but because we want you taken care of properly, we urge you to visit a specialty ski shop with veteran personnel who know their craft.
For ski models reviewed this year, including more than 200 skis from the most popular brands, our beta "Find" feature directs you to authorized dealers who not only carry recommended skis and boots but who also offer the expert services and additional equipment skiers need. Our recommended specialty shops are among the best in the land.
If you’re a skier, you’re our friend. We want to help new friends—and returning fans—enjoy our sport even more through our upgraded site. In particular, we want our ski and ski equipment reviews to be entertaining, informative and easy to use and understand.
