“Carver” Test at Taos

This week at Taos, we lined up a week-long frontside carver test.

And what we’ve learned is that lining up a frontside carver test may be far more effective than doing a snow dance if you want to get the mountain covered in pow.

So while the groomers here have been buried, and this hasn’t been the ideal week to review skinny skis, absolutely no one is complaining.

We’ll have plenty of time to rip groomers this season, and we have been getting some time in (as you’ll see).

But this Carver Test photo gallery is going to be framed by pow shots, because this is what our week has looked like so far.
