2023 BUYER’S GUIDE + THE PEOPLE’S SKI TEST
The sun setting on summer means only one thing: this year’s shiny new objects are arriving at your local ski shop. So to help discover which skis, boots and bindings may be best suited for you, we’re proud to present the 2023 Buyer’s Guide and our second-annual ski test at Red Mountain Resort in Rossland, B.C., which offers a look at over 200 products and 33 product reviews from everyday skiers.
Kevin Hjertaas and Bruno Long hit Highway 1 to the resorts formerly known as Whitetooth Mountain, Mount McKenzie and Tod Mountain to dissect whether living the dream is still alive and well amongst skiing’s youth.
In addition to all of the above and more, Josh Bibby checks in with some helpful and heartfelt tips on prepping your toddler to go skiing, Anna Segal looks back on her journey from standing atop slopestyle podiums to the Whistler backcountry’s impressive peaks, Indra Hayre discusses the inspirational Inclu-SKI-vity community she founded, and we put forth the chance to win a pair of Volkl Skis of your choosing in celebration of the iconic brand’s 100th anniversary.
