The best freeride skis of the season

Are you over skiing the same groomers? Are you eager to discover new spots and get a taste of freedom? Then, you’re probably looking for freeride skis! Specifically designed for deep powder, a freeride ski lets you discover new sensations on still virgin slopes out in the mountains. Naturally, freeride skis are wider than piste skis, to perform better on deep conditions and provide better support underfoot. A freeride ski can be well over 100 mm at the waist to be ready for pow-pow. With such a wide shape, you may think the ski looses on manoeuvrability but it’s far from being true! Brands offer various constructions and exclusive innovations to offer great skiability. To help you out, we’ve prepared a selection of the freeride skis we particularly like this season.

Atomic Maverick 100 Ti


With the Maverick 100 Ti, Atomic offers a beautiful and sleek ski! The definition of freeride. With 100 generous millimetres underfoot, the ski is extremely effective on every terrain. Not too wide to remain agile and skiable between trees or on steep and icy sections, it’s not too narrow either to surf on powder and float naturally when it gets deep. A responsive ski, very stable thanks to a layer of titanal that offers a good balance between flexibility, stiffness, and stability. A real treat to ski with, no matter the conditions. The long rocker and tapered tip make it a smooth and fluid ski but you can still feel the power it packs. A true gem that will make you happy all winter long, guaranteed!

Strengths:


  • Versatility

  • Stability

  • Floatability

Atomic Bent Chetler 120


Still from Atomic, with a true staple in the freeride world, the Bent Chetler is accustomed to our tops. This version with a 120 mm wide waist is the widest in the range. A ski as good as the skier it incarnates. Despite being (very) wide, it remains manoeuvrable thanks to a double rocker profile (raised front and rear tips) that allows to navigate with confidence even waist deep in powder. A ski that is relatively light thanks to the use of carbon in its construction, and ultra-playful as well. Exclusively meant for off-piste skiing, you’ll enjoy backcountry freestyle sessions or searching steep and technical spots to push your boundaries. Beginners beware, this one isn’t for you!

Strengths:


  • Floats naturally

  • Playfulness

  • Manoeuvrability

Völkl Revolt 114


In addition to having a graphic to die for, the new Revolt 114 is an innovative freeride ski for skiers looking both for technicity and fun. Sitting between the Revolt 104 and the 121, it has a modern freeride shape that gives a lot of character. The flat tail and rather short tip make it very playful on powder, ready to zip through trees and drop cornices. We loved the feeling of power the ski provides. Whether it’s tracked out snow, crust, or a beautiful layer of fresh and light snow, it’s the same kind of fun every time. A pleasant experience guaranteed.

Strengths:


  • Power

  • Stable

  • Manoeuvrable


Blizzard Rustler 10


Let’s now take a look at Blizzard’s offering with the Rustler 10. With a 102 mm wide waist, you’re dealing with a precise and versatile model. Trueblend Woodcore technology provides everything you need for memorable freeride sessions, minus the weight. Lighter and still remarkably effective, the ski features titanal for failproof stability and strength. A ski that can navigate narrow section while being able to jump rock cliffs and land like it’s nothing. It also guarantees excellent grip on hardpack, which can be appreciated when the conditions in the backcountry are less ideal.


Strengths:


  • Responsiveness

  • Stability

  • Lightness


Black Crows Corvus


It’s hard to make a list of the best freeride skis without bringing up Black Crows. This year, we’ve picked the Corvus as the brand’s freeride ambassador. A real piece of art both inside and outside, you’ll find all the know-how of the brand with the chevrons. What sets this ski apart is its profile. Two long rockers at the tip and tail with a section of flat camber underfoot. Reminding of a reverse camber but this flat camber section provides better grip and stability, without compromising on the manoeuvrability on challenging terrain. Reinforced by titanal plates for better stiffness, a powerful ski, cut to go fast and descend straight down the slope. Exclusively for skilled skiers.


Strengths:


  • Power

  • Stability

  • Manoeuvrability


Black Crows Corvus

Majesty Havoc 100 Carbon


The Majesty Havoc 100 Carbon is at the frontier of freeriding and freetouring, but we like it so much that we chose to feature it in our selection. Packing everything you need to trace your way through the backcountry, from baren peaks to lush forest runs, this ski is powerful and especially very precise. The carbon construction leaves no room to doubt, the ski is stiff and will go wherever you want, no questions asked. It’s also lightweight, that’s for the freetouring part. With the right bindings, you’ll be able to climb and reach remote spots you can’t ski otherwise. To sum it up, if you’re looking for a ski to venture everywhere, the Havoc 100 Carbon is an excellent option!


Strengths:


  • Power

  • Precision

  • Lightness
