What skis to demo?


Recommended Posts

I am going to be getting a new ski this year and I am trying to slowly learn what kind of skis I should demo. I am coming off a 2009 Radar Annex (long over due upgrade) and I just got OB4 bindings today. I am a 100% course skier who skis 34-36 MPH and 15-28 off at the moment. 5'11" and 150 lbs.

 

I can access a Radar dealer locally, so I was planning on trying out the Lithium Vapor. Additionally, the D3 demo program is really good - 2 skis for $70 bucks. So I will probably demo a ARC-S and a Quest 45 from them. Are there any other skis I should test out? I don't know much of anything about ski tech or which ski is better for which skiing style. My goal is to try and not sink tons of money into demos though. After shipping and demo charges from several companies the cost really adds up.

X3, get used to new bindings first. Or, put old bindings on new ski first. That would be my choice. There is more of an change in feel from a binding change than a ski change in most cases.
