“I would take this ski out on my biggest backcountry missions. If you have your eye on a line that’s going to take most of the day to get on top of, and need top performance on your jump turns in the crux—not to mention the race out against your slough—the Scott Superguide Freetour is for you. This ski’s stiffness-to-weight ratio will allow you to save energy on the way up, but without compromising performance in soft conditions on the way down. And while thisis a surefire tool for big-line riders, I would also happily recommend this backcountry ski to intermediates who are looking for some easy ski touring, as it can handle all types of slope angles, and would be a short-radius, dad-turning machine.” –Sean Ennis

REVIEWER BIO:

Sean Ennis
Age: 24 / Height: 5’7” / Weight: 145 lbs / Occupation: Tree Planter
As the youngest and therefore most spry of our testers, Sean Ennis likes tackling steep and technical lines, smashing bumps and ripping groomers, all in an effort to make the most out of any type of terrain and condition. A tree planter in the summer and part-time freeski coach at Red Mountain Resort in the winter, Ennis spends a lot of time touring, and rode a fully rockered, 118-millimetre-underfoot ski in a 186-centimetre length for the majority of last winter, but isn’t opposed to the odd love affair with a flat-tailed directional charger.
