Gear Review: Scott Powd'air Ski

This ski is all about edges, but loves powder too.

[killer carver]

Skiers who love to float but also appreciate a ski that will carve turns should get the Pow’dair. All praised its quick edge-to-edge energy transfer (a result of ski-strengthening vertical sidewalls), and how “sure, solid, and non-chattery” it skied in all snow depths and conditions. “Great for aggressive, advanced skiers who like to mix it up in everything from big pow to bumps to crud.” $900; 8 lbs. 6 oz. (183cm); 163 (123/96/117), 173 (129/98/120), 183 (134/100/123); scott-sports.com
