Tester Quick Takes Day Two: Gear Test Week 2018

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.

On day two we get the scoop on the Black Crows Camox Freebird and the DPS Cassiar 87 with Caitlin Mitchell and Kevin McCarthy.

What he thinks: “It’s definitely punching above its weight class. It’s strong, it’s stiff, you can flick it around. It would definitely be a good ski for a long day or if you want to ski something spicy. You can feel confident laying it over and overall it’s a blast to ski.”
