A Baker's Dozen of the Best 2018 Skis

Let's be honest: most of us here at Powder7 are in it for the gear. We like gear--buying gear, testing gear, talking about gear--and we won't apologize for that. That's why we're always pumped when chilly November air arrives and it's finally time for our first on-snow ski demo of the season, hosted by Loveland Ski Area. When it comes to picking our favorite skis at a demo day, however, it's impossible to choose just one. Even narrowing things down to the usual top 10 list feels too constricting for us.

2019 Faction Prime 2.0 Description:

Engineered in the pursuit of excellence, for both inbounds and outbounds, the Prime 2.0 excels all over the mountain. Featherweight due to its super-lightweight hybrid core, the 98mm underfoot Prime 2.0 boasts a whole load of torsional stability thanks to the innovative use of the proprietary weave textreme carbon, meaning the ski grips even in the hardest and iciest of conditions. A multi dimension sidecut and extended rocker in the tip and tail gives this ski its dynamism, making it fun to carve on piste, nimble and maneuverable in those tight, no-fall-zone couloir entries, and exhilarating when you're arcing out of the glacial bowl below. A titanal plate underfoot ensures the best possible reliability for your bindings when you decide to set off on your next touring adventure. Lightweight and exceptionally stable, this is the dynamic freeride touring champion.
