Test Notes

To put it frankly, this ski is sick. The all-new Line Bacon 108 sizzles as an all-mountain, do-it-all ski. The combination of powder surfing and exploding through chunks that I experienced while testing it gave this ski an off-piste sense of home and reliability, like waking up to the smell of hot coffee and well, you know, bacon. But what I couldn’t get over was how fun it proved to be on the hard pack at 108 millimetres underfoot. Hip-to-snow carving while holding a strong edge catapulted this ski into the everyday ripper category for me, as I was fortunate enough to ride it in everything from powder to post-storm snow, ice, corduroy and spring slush. So if you like to vary up your terrain, and live in a region that could have a foot of fresh one day, but firm groomers the next, then the Bacon is a ski that’s definitely worth your time. —Jack Lesnik
