Gear Review: La Sportiva GT/GTS Ski

The ski for every skier, in every condition.

This ski is like magic. Somehow it managed to please every tester who used it—from one novice who had never been on a backcountry trip to several experts who have taken hundreds. We loved it in every snow condition—from powder to sloppy corn to ice. “A super-light touring ski (especially when mounted with RT bindings) with lots of pluck!” says one tester.

“I’d take this on any backcountry trip, but I’d be happy to ski it at the resort, too.” Also works with telemark bindings.

$630; 6 lbs. 8 oz.

(184cm); GT: 170cm, 177cm, 184cm (123/89/111); GTS: 157cm, 166cm (121/88/109)
