This year’s ski test in Hintertux, Tirol was one of the best yet, with fantastic conditions and most importantly lots of fresh snow. All the big names were there and we had the opportunity to put the latest tech through their paces.
Every year our testers put together comprehensive reviews based upon their hands-on experience with the skis, with the aim of providing you with the crucial information needed to help guide you through the latest season’s gear.
We’ve picked out 5 of our favourite reviews of this season for your viewing pleasure.
