It’s Gear Test Week 2018, and as the sun blazes down on Powder Mountain, Utah, testers charge through the latest and greatest skis, boots and bindings for this coming season. To get a preview of some of the exciting sticks and kicks for winter 2018, we will be catching up with testers slope-side to hear about their daily gear selects.
First off, we take a run with testers Dana Allen and Meg Shultz to learn what flames their powder fever.

“Definitely a quick ski to turn, super light with good edge hold on firm conditions and surprisingly dampened in refrozen chunder. Generally a good ski mountaineering ski.” —Dana Allen
