The first thing you're likely to notice about the 2018 K2 Marksman skis, is their asymmetric tip and tail design. The second thing you'll notice, if you're lucky enough to click into a pair, is how incredibly playful and fun these skis are. From laying hard carves to popping off rollers and skiing switch, the Marksman is a ski built for those who take a non-traditional and freestyle inspired approach to skiing the whole mountain. If you're the type of skier who brings terrain park tendencies to the whole mountain, then you'll want to check out our review of the 2018 K2 Marksman!

New for 2018 is Salomon's XDR lineup: a series of frontside skis that borrow's the CFX Superfiber and Ti Power Platform from Salomon's QST series. The result is a fantastically stable, light, and responsive collection of frontside skis. To introduce you to the line, we've decided to put the new 2018 Salomon XDR 84 Ti to the test. After having four of our staff members test the ski, we've gathered our thoughts and we're excited to share our review of the brand new 2018 Salomon XDR 84 Ti ski!

Despite it's full rocker, no camber design, the 2018 Volkl 100Eight isn't a ski for those who like to get wishy-washy in the powder. Instead, it utilizes Volkl's new 3D Glass construction to create a powder skis that's torsionally stiff and incredibly stable at speed. This torsional stiffness ultimately leads to an even better trait: predictability. Overall, that was the one word that our ski tester, Jeff, used to describe the ski after having the opportunity to put it to the test one powdery morning at Stowe. Find out more right here, in this review of the 2018 Volkl 100Eight!

When Stowe received over 50" of powder last week, we knew exactly what we had to do: put the 2018 Salomon QST 118 to the test. With a waist width of 118mm and a healthy amount of tip and tail rocker, these skis were undoubtedly built for powder. It's a fact that we confirmed over the course of two days in which we were able to test them in untouched powder, the trees, and chopped up trail snow. Spolier alert: these things killed it. Find out more in this all new review of the 2018 Salomon QST 118.
