We are thrilled to present the results from the first annual SkiEssentials.com Ski Test. Over the course of three days at Stowe Mountain Resort our team of 38 skiers tested a total of 122 skis. Instead of focusing on numerical scores and which ski is the “best,” we tried to objectively describe the performance of each ski and whom it would be best for. You’ll find results broken down by ski category, gender, and brand including links to the testers who skied each ski. We hope the results from our test help guide you to your new skis!

It's a Friday in July, which means this week's ski news is HOT off the presses! This time around, we get business minded as we focus in on stories related to the money making side of the industry. From two stories that touch on upper management positions at ski resorts, to a startup that wants to revolutionize chairlift safety bars, this week's ski news is loaded with financial tidbits. But, we made sure to keep it lighthearted with the inclusion of an update from Squaw Valley's endless winter. Find out all about it in this week's Top 5 Friday!

Sometimes in the thick of summer, ski news slows to a trickle. Our most devoted readers certainly know that. This week, however, was not one of those weeks. For starters, we have an update for you from the Aspen Ski Co. who'd been awaiting a ruling regarding anti-trust laws. On top of that, we've got an update from Powder Alliance, as well as a story from New York that involves the government, three ski resorts, and nearly $5 million. Oh, and Matchstick Productions released the trailer for their newest flick, and it's absolute fire. Check it all out right here!
