Ski Review: Elan Wingman

To sell something unnecessary, you must first buy something unnecessary; to make something new, you must first come up with something new. It is logical, but it is not always the only existing logic. In Elan, they disagree entirely with the idea that something new should be invented. They think that a novelty can be made of two oldovelties, and this season they made a new series without developing anything new. Let's find out how.

Ski Test: Volkl Deacon XTD

Well, fascinating test today. Interesting both because the skis are from the new collection, because the skis are from a category that seems not so interesting at all, so that our testers didn’t want to spend time on it, and because the skis are created for beginners, and when combined with boots with 110 flex it is possible to look at them through the eyes of the people for whom they were created.


Ski Test: Fischer RcOne 73

Today we are testing another new model from Fischer from the RcOne series, which made its first appearance this year and replaced its predecessor. It would be sad to find out that these are worse than the last ones because it becomes very annoying to what the trend where new models are significantly worse than the old models.


Ski Test: Salomon QST 92 16/17

Another model from QST series by Salomon. Not the first skis of this series but that fact will not affect on the result of this test. Every ski is unique and we test them regardless of their history. Only test on the slope without worrying about anything else. Let's start.


Ski test: Rossignol Experience 84 HD

Skis from new, or rather to say updated in 2016 series HD. It is interesting to test this skis and to find out how new fibre reinforcement changed riding. Let's do it.


Ski Test: K2 Mindbender 90Ti

It is understandable why the soft allround freeride skis are so popular - such skis are good for both on- and off-piste skiing. The waist width of about 90 is perfect for a piste. If you want more freeride - just take a wider model. In comparison with stiffer on-piste, skis of this category allow smoother skiing on bumpy pistes as well as better control in general. That is why this category is one of the favourites among the most skiers. K2 had many decent skis for backside freeride and ski tourism but never really had allround freeride skis, what would be controllable, soft and dynamic.


Yourski Special: A perfect ski trip, Setting Goals

So you want to go skiing, and there is nothing that would make you reject this idea? There are beautiful pictures of mountains, snow and skis in your head? Great! You already have some motivation. However, you can quickly get demotivated by questions such as "should I book a hotel room or buy plane/train tickets first", "who should go there with me", "where do I go and why exactly there" and many others. Let's clarify all the most essential things.

Yourski Special: A perfect ski trip, Introduction

This is an introduction to the Yourski Special called "A perfect ski trip". In this Special, we will talk about what steps should one undertake to make ones ski trip as good as it can be.

Ski test: Nordica Dobermann GSR RB EVO

Doberman GRS RB EVO is a ski for giant slalom, but it is spring right now so our team of testers wounded up not in giant-slalom conditions. Still, many skiers who found themselves on slushy spring snow don't want to quit. Let's see what kind of skiing can we get if we don't quit with this ski model.


On-Piste Skiing: After learning the basics

Well, you already know how to make a sliding turn and to ski with pleasure on nearly every slope. But not everything is that clear and simple now. For instance, what to do on an icy or a very steep slope? There are still a lot of questions. But the main thing that you now would probably want to ski like an expert as soon as possible - to ski at high speed and at the same time to control everything that happens.
