Susan Dorn


Susan Dorn is back with us for another year, and she provides some high-quality analysis when it comes to testing skis. She’s come a long way from learning to ski at a golf course in New Jersey almost 55 years ago. Her current skis of choice are Elan Insomnias and Rossignol Hero FIS GS skis. As an expert skier and Masters level racer, Susan brings a great deal of speed and aggressiveness to the test. Fittingly, she prefers groomed terrain and going fast. If she were an animal, she’d be a Fox, probably because of their sly and nimble nature. We’re happy to have Susan back to test some skis for us, and we certainly value her input and experience in the realm of skiing.
