Take anywhere, ski anything.

Load up the rig with your ski gear, sleeping bag, and all the snacks you can handle, because you and the Armada TST Ski are going on a road trip. Even if you require a couple cases of potato chips, candy bars, seven jackets, and three twelvers of energy drinks, the TST is the only ski you'll need to ski everything from East Coast groomers to Rocky Mountain powder to Sierra cement. Built with Armada's super-versatile EST All-Mtn Rocker, which boasts traditional camber underfoot, a rockered tip, and a relatively flat tail, the TST can shred knee-deep pow with the best of 'em, rally groomers like it grew up bashing gates, and roll into the backcountry without weighing you down. The tip rocker floats over powder and makes turn initiation a breeze, while the flatter tail and traditional camber hold down a powerful edge and provide solid turn finishing at eye-watering speeds.

The TST is also nice and light, as it's built on a Hybrid Ultralight wood core that's lively and energetic without being flimsy or chattery. Armada laid a layer of multidirectional fiberglass over the top to stiffen it up and without decreasing the liveliness, and it included its famous AR50 construction sidewalls underfoot and cap construction in the tip and tail to give you plenty of edging power and durability without increasing weight. This helps the TST stay light and nimble in East Coast trees and tight West Coast chutes, letting the speedy Comp Series base and tough 1.7mm Impact edges get down to business whether you're ripping around VT, CA, or somewhere in between.

  • EST All Mtn Rocker (tip rocker, positive camber)
  • AR50 Sidewall half-cap construction
  • Hybrid UltraLight wood core
  • 102 mm underfoot (183 cm)
  • 5-point sidecut
  • Comp Series base
  • 1.7 Impact edges

Unanswered Question

I'm 5'7" 155 pounds. Looking at TST 183's with a tele set up. Does anyone have mounting line suggestions? I'm not sure if it is possible (or necessary) to move forward of factory line? Thanks.


True All Mountain Fun

The TST is a wide ski, but it does not limit what it can do. Control is extraordinary, with a clear focus at Armada on clean edges while floating on powder. Whether used in deep stashes or on new groomers, the TST will meet the challenge well. Honestly, there's little need for more than this pair to get through most winter adventures.

I bind mine with telemark bindings, and the TST is great for this use. The only limitation to backcountry access is the weight, which can be a bit on the heavy side for backpack or hand carrying.


Pretty fun ski.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I added this ski to my quiver 3 years ago, expecting it to be a quiver-killer. Its not. But it is close. It does well in powder but is balanced enough to handle on-piste hardpack. Edge-to-edge transitions are quick and the progressive sidecut make the ski feel longer when you're digging into a carve yet quick and pivot-able through trees.
The main drawback to me with this ski is the rocker-camber profile. The TST has a early rise tip, camber under foot, and a standard twin-tip at the tail. When mounted at factory-recommended point, this camber profile has more active edge behind the skiers foot than at the tip. To move the mounting point backward (as a shop tech) would just mess up the sidecut geometry. This active-edge-length disparity means its hard to really drive into carves on hardpack because the tip of the ski doesn't drive really well. It still does perform quite well on hardpack and even moguls, for a powder ski. In the pow, its 102mm waist floats like a 110mm yet weighs like a 90mm. Its not wide enough for those crazy deep days, but its balanced enough to be a good reliable ski which can be a lot of fun in any snow conditions.
