Crista has been telemarking for nine years, but recently invested in her first AT setup. Still, she says she loves dropping knees in “perfect powder on wide-open slopes.” She’s been testing with Backcountry for five years. Her pick of the test? The Scott Cruis’Air.

CRISTA’S REVIEW OF THE SCOTT CRUIS’AIR:

Overall Score: 8/10
Dampness: 8/10
Medium Turn Performance: 9/10
Long Turns: 7/10
Turn Initiation: 7/10
Crud Performance: 7/10
Powder Performance: 8/10
Hard-Snow Performance: 7/10

COMMENTS: “The Cruis’Airs are an awesome option for going up and are very solid for the way down. I was surprised how well they handled on ice, without any show of chatter, and they were super fun in powder. I made a few alpine turns and noted that they were much more playful, popping at the arc of the turn.”
