Don't be stressed this gift-buying season. Why not? Because the skier in your life isn't.
He's calling in sick, hoarding credit card points and dreaming up escapades from Hokkaido to Zermatt. Yet for all his talk about ski equipment, epic days, and possible cat skiing trips, he'll probably suffer from a common affliction: the inability to decide.
This makes your path clear. Be his superhero and decide for him. How, you ask? By using our state-of-the-art ski-buying matrix, born from algorithms doodled on ski lodge napkins, espresso-fueled graphic design hauls, and lots—we mean lots—of gear testing.

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. So, after testing out the latest gear and falling in love over and over again, we ended up with the following list highlighting a baker's dozen of the best 2018 skis from the Loveland demo.

2020 Rossignol Sky 7 HD Description:
If ever there was an all-mountain ski that could make anyone have fun skiing, it may be the Rossignol Sky 7 HD. It is the type of ski that leaves you wondering why skiing never felt like this before. Thanks to Air Tip 2.0 technology and healthy rocker in the tips and tails, the Sky 7 is lightweight, easy to maneuver, and pure bliss in soft snow. Whereas prior 7-series skis lacked enough mixed snow performance to be true daily drivers, the addition of Rossignols Carbon Alloy Matrix in 2017 changed the game. Referred to as HD, that tech gave the Sky 7 some backbone and damping. Now it is an industry favorite for skiers who explore the whole mountain in the name of scoring powder turns. Similar skis: Black Crows Camox, Icelantic Nomad 95, Salomon QST 99.
