In Depth Staff Reviews:
By: Matt McDonald
We're not spoiled.
Powder7 staffers just try out current and popular skis every week, embark on company powder missions, crush sunny groomers en masse, and talk about skis for a living. We also go to an industry demo event every November at Loveland Ski Area to stay on top of our craft.
Ok, maybe we are spoiled. But our ski fever comes from a good place—we want to try as many products as we can in order to help you get on the right pair of skis.
So here are some of our favorites from last month's Loveland demo, just in time for you to blow through that holiday check from your mother-in-law.

You love him. He loves skiing.
Whether or not you also ski, finding a gear gift for him can quickly prove intimidating. There’s just so much stuff. He’s just so particular. Or maybe he just never coherently communicates what he needs or wants.
Whether he errs on the wild side or religiously sticks with that jacket you got him 20 years ago or blows you off to chase powder, we’ve got you covered.
And because you’re reading this gift guide, we know he loves you too.

He’s the personable one, the one cracking jokes and grabbing you a beer and laughing at himself. Those bright colors and that distinctive style mean you never lose him on the mountain. Get him a gift that keeps his party rolling.

2020 Armada ARV 96 Description:
The new topsheets Armada rolled out with its 2019-2020 ARV series turned heads. That abstract art was created by Joram Roukes, a guy who has gained attention for scenes that evoke introspection and contemplation. Too many big words? Think of it this way: while you sit on the chairlift between thigh-scorching hot laps in which you jump off every roller in sight, your skis will get you thinking. Maybe about figures and color-splashed flourishes, maybe about how you never had a ski this fun before. Either way, when you get to the top, you may know yourself a little bit better. Then you'll ski faster and air higher than you did on the last run. Similar skis: ON3P Magnus 102, Faction Candide 2.0.
