The ski formerly known as the ski.
We hate to break it to you, but if these skis look familiar then you're definitely not a kid anymore. Sharing the same legendary graphics that made the '70s mogul ski known as "The Ski" a favorite of the boondock masters of yore, the Scott Ski is bringing a little piece of ski history to the masses, but with all the modern bells and whistles to charge the frontside from first to last chair.
The rockered tip makes for a playful and responsive feel, while camber underfoot gives The Ski the ability to carve with scalpel-like precision down the hardpack. The unique 3Dimensional sidecut consists of a shape that's flat underfoot and has two different tip and tail radii to provide better stability, power, and edge hold. The window graphics on the topsheet gives a view of the wood core that runs the length of the ski, and the elliptical sandwich construction utilizes titanal sheets above and below the core for increased torsional stiffness. The Ski will handle everything from soft corduroy to iced-over bumps with ease making these a great all-mountain ski for the dedicated frontside ripper.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Given the way the winters have been going recently, unfortunately I didn't have much of a chance to break out the powder boards last season. Instead I clung dearly to my heavy, old, and most favorite Nordica Hot Rod Jet Fuel something-somethings carving skis, of which I have been loathe to replace- until now. The Ski not only has a shorter name (thank god), but is a great ski for all resort conditions. They are surprisingly playful, responsive, and forgiving, they carve beautifully, and they will still cut through that chopped-up week old powder like it ain't no thang. I channeled Bobbie Burns in the bumps (interpret as you wish), and felt like Hansi Hinterseer schussing and ski twisting down the slopes (if you haven't seen Hansi's Ski Twist video, stop what you're doing right now and google it). If you're looking for a do-it-all front side West Coast ski, this is THE SKI.
