Ski rating: Freeski 2016-17

This category refers to the skis that are made for those who prefer on-piste skiing with an occasional deviation from a piste, which does not extend to pure freeride. This means no technique limits, fast carving, sliding manoeuvres, a bit of jumping, and snow park riding. Such skis should be controllable, responsive, and frisky. They must be reliable and predictable, but simultaneously “provoke” a skier to have a crazy, fun ride.
