Top 3 Skis of 2018 From Basin Sports in Killington, Vermont

Top 3 Skis of 2018 And Why You Should Be Taking A Closer Look

Pre-Season Purchase Coming Soon!

Top 3 Skis of 2018

I did it, I narrowed down my selection from 5 Top skis to 3. I wasn’t wildly impressed by the ski industry this year. That’s not to say there weren’t amazing skis by all the ski companies because when isn’t there really? In a way it felt similar to the slump that the bike industry is having. Maybe I’ve just gotten pickier about my choices. I’m like a food critic but for skis! Typically I would do top 4 or top 5 skis of the year but really got strict on my preferences and requirements to make it onto this list. Two of the skis on this list are entirely new skis the other is hitting it’s 1 year birthday. I’ll explain my reasoning as I progress through the skis.

2018 Nordica Enforcer Pro

This ski will be available for pre-season purchase at Basin Sports. Nordica has been hugely popular with the Enforcer line and as we move into next year will be offering narrower and wider waist width options. The Nordica Enforcer Pro is unique though. Boasting 115 underfoot the 2018 Nordica Enforcer Pro will only be available in the 191 length. The rocker in itself is also different. With a rocker profile mirroring the retired Helldorado this ski will be perfect for the shredder looking to replace their old black on black ass kickers. Big Mountain minded the 2018 Nordica Enforcer Pro is no joke. With a 21.5 meter turn radius this ski is for advanced level skiers. A mention in itself for the Top 3 Skis of 2018 due to its appealing name and joke inspiring name. Do you think your pro enough for the 2018 Nordica Enforcer Pro?

Specs:

  • 143-115-132
  • 9 Meter Turn Radius
  • Only Available in 191
  • Big Mtn Inspired and a direct replacement of the Helldorado
  • Unique Rocker Profile
  • Same Layup as other enforcers

2018 Atomic Vantage x 83 Cti

This ski will be celebrating its 1st birthday this year as it’s been around for a year but is notable in the Top 3 Skis of 2018. I’ve noticed an interesting trend with any and all Atomic Skis though. They almost never get the recognition they deserve in their debut year. It isn’t until their second season that they start racking up awards. Think about the Atomic Vantage 100 Cti and the Women’s Vantage 95 C. Both won awards this year but this is their second season in existence. So I predict that the 2018 Atomic Vantage X 83 CTi will win some awards next season and here’s why.

First off not much has changed, just minor tweaks to make it better than it already is. This ski is perfect for those hard pack ski days or groomer days. They’re in fact quite forgiving in bumps too which I found incredibly surprising. For 2018 you’ll see a new graphic on the 83. Less loud and in your face. Last year’s ski was Neon Orange vs the 2018 which is blackout with orange highlights, much more sexy if you ask me. The only other major difference between 2017 and 2018 is the beefed up layup underfoot. Not that it wasn’t all there, it’s just more there than ever before.

I like this ski because at 174cm it has a 16.4 turn radius. It’s got a carbon mesh and Ti backbone construction. All while keeping that 10/90/0 rocker profile that the iconic Atomic Redster has. Don’t forget the plate system that looks incredibly similar to the race plate on the Redster. All this at $899 (bindings included). A hell of a deal and a hell of a diverse ski. I wouldn’t overlook this ski this coming season. Often passed by, this ski has rockets attached to the tails of it….At least that’s what it feels like.

Specs:

  • New Graphic
  • Beefed Up Underfoot
  • 4meter turn radius @ 174
  • AMT Rocker 10/90/0
  • Ti Backbone 2.0
  • Carbon Tank Mesh
  • Plated System Ski

2018 Armada Tracer 98

Basin Sports Staff Favorite and all-around 2018 Pick of the year.

The 2018 Armada Tracer 98 was the third Top 3 Skis of 2018 and was number 2 on my list of favorite skis at the New England Test Fest this year. I skied the test fest the day it decided to drop a foot of snow on us. My number 1 ski was 115 underfoot for reference. A 98mm ski on a powder day was #2?! Yes, yes it was. Also I should note that this ski has no metal in it. But don’t let that turn you away. See Armada came out with this tech called Xrystal Mesh. It feels like metal but it isn’t. This ski was light, playful and nimble. A foot of champagne powder? No Problem. Tight New England Trees to wide open powder fields I was surprised and amazed at how well this ski handled. The 2018 Armada Tracer 98 is part of the Tracer collection and comes in narrower and wider waist widths. Ladies should look to the Trace series which boasts the same construction but with a better graphic.

Armada has come a long way since its Freestyle Days. I love the older generation whose been taking out the invicta skis by Armada and say how surprised they are that a “freestyle” rooted ski company has such a diverse collection. Don’t overlook Armada, they’re legit.

Specs:

  • New Series
  • No Metal/ Instead Xrystal Mesh
  • Hybrid Ultra-light core
  • Tour/ AT Ready
  • @172/ 130-98-121
  • 5m radius @172

Top 4 Skis Of 2017 – At Least In Our Opinion

Top 4 Skis Of 2017 A Look At What’s In Store

Classifying the Top 4 Skis of 2017 is no small feat.  For one thing I have to narrow down a plethora of skis out there to four and well this year is sure full of surprises and a few oddities. SIA is over, orders are in and President’s Week is almost over.  With the way winter has been going for us here on the east coast many of us who are multi- seasonal are chomping at the bit to get into mountain bike season which hopefully produces a better season that the wintery mixture we’ve received this year. But I’m getting sidetracked and well let’s get down to the Top 4 Skis of 2017.

 

  1. 2017 Rossignol Soul 7 HD

 

 

Top 4 Skis Of 2017
2017 Rossignol Soul 7 HD

 

 

Let’s be honest here for a second. The S 7 series was getting a little stale. The once best-selling ski in the world needed a makeover and Rossignol delivered.  The 2017 Rossignol Soul 7 HD is the new and improved Soul 7 with a few major changes. We’re going to look past the (in my opinion) horrendous color scheme and focus on construction because that’s the more important part right?

What you can look forward to is a new carbon alloy and paulownia core construction. This makes the ski a bit stiffer in attempt to reduce that pesky tip and tail flap and increase stability that was lacking in previous models. You’re still getting that air tip technology and powder turn rocker but the major changes are the construction of the core and laminate integration. Turn radius and dimensional specs are identical, but Rossignol felt a makeover was needed and the new and improved 2017 Soul 7 HD is bound to attract a new audience.

 

  1. 2017 Nordica Enforcer 93mm

 

Top 4 Skis Of 2017
2017 Nordica Enforcer 93

 

 

With the tremendous success Nordica had with the Enforcer this year (Ski Magazine Ski Of the Year) they felt it was only right to expand the enforcer collection and offer a different waist option. Behold the 2017 Nordica Enforcer 93 a new addition to the Nordica Enforcer family. With dimensions of 126-93-114 and the same construction as it’s big brother it’s bound to catch the attention of east coast rippers.

This flat mount, full sidewall ski guarantees that you can lay the edge over and carve up a storm with these bad boys.  And we have a few left from our early release order available, but you have to call to get in on the goodies.

p.s… rumor has it a wider than 100mm waist option may be in the works for 2017/18

 

  1. 2017 Armada Invictus 99Ti

(Photo Coming Soon/ It Looks Rad Though)

A crowd favorite at SIA this year the 2017 Armada Invictus 99Ti is turning heads. Five years ago a lot of people wouldn’t even consider Armada as a major company in the ski industry. And they weren’t, they had a major freestyle following then. Since then Armada has gained momentum as an All- Mountain/ Freeride Ski company and have been producing some kick ass skis. They’ve tried really hard to cater to a wider audience and for 2017 I think they knocked the nail right on the head. The 2017 Armada Invictus 99Ti is not a park ski, in fact it’s classified as an All- Mountain Directional Ski.

Construction wise there’s no messing around with these sticks and I wouldn’t recommend this ski to a beginner. The 2017 Armada Invictus 99Ti comes with two sheets of titanal (One on top, one on the bottom) and Carbon Kevalar Struts in the laminate. At 133-99-123 this ski sports dimensions similar to any popular All- Mountain ski in the 100mm waist range and even has a power lite core. The difference being that the 2017 Armada Invictus 99Ti sports tip rocker soley with a flat tail for more camber underfoot.  This ski would be a good option as an aggressive in-bounds dawn patrol type ski if you wanted to mount it up as a tour option. Obviously, you don’t have to go tour but, as an All- Mountain ski the 2017 Armada Invictus 99Ti is going to be a powerhouse option and is one of Top 4 Skis Of 2017.

 

  1. 2017 Atomic Vantage 100 CTI

 

Top 4 Skis Of 2017
2016 Atomic 100 CTI. 2017 Shares same color way with slight differences in lettering layout.

 

 

If you read our Top 4 Skis Of 2016 from last year, you’ll recognize the 100 and I’m putting it back on here for a reason.  This ski was (what I felt) kind of left behind due to the popularity of the Nordica Enforcer this year and it’s hard for me to wrap my brain around it because almost every skier that works in this shop has bought a pair of Atomic Vantages and yet It fails to get the recognition it deserves. The 2017 Atomic Vantage 100 CTI shares similar characteristics of its popular counterpart but there’s a few major differences.

The biggest would be rocker design. The 2017 Atomic Vantage 100 CTI has 20% Tip Rocker and 10% Mild tail Rocker. The 2017 Nordica Enforcer has 25/5 Rocker and that slight difference makes all the difference. For one thing the effective edge (The edge in contact with the snow) is more forward on the Vantage making edge initiation easier. Next Carbon, mhmmm carbon. Carbon Tank Mesh makes the Vantage snappy as hell and incredibly dynamic. That combined with its titanium backbone makes this ski an incredibly fun multi- dynamic ski. Having that effective edge more forward means that when you’re on edge and preparing to exit the turn, your skis stay stable underfoot and don’t “wash out” on exit. They power in and out of the turn.

Ice, Crud, Slush, Powder the 2017 Atomic Vantage 100 CTI can do it all and will transform your ski experience from a “meh” kind of ski day to an amazing day on snow which is why it’s one of the Top 4 Skis Of 2017.

 

To Conclude

 

Just to be clear, I started off with the intention to write up a top 5 skis blog. And well, I wasn’t super impressed with some of the things coming out this year. Many are attempts at older concepts from five years ago that didn’t work. But Niche is in and hey maybe they’ll work. Now to wrap up this blog…

These are the Top 4 Skis Of 2017 for a reason. They’re dynamic, stable and work in a multitude of conditions. All these skis are in the 100mm All- Mountain class because that’s the biggest ski audience at the moment. If narrower skis is your cup of tea, or maybe you’re a “powdah hound” then calling us is the best route you could take.  We won’t force a ski upon you just for the sale either, sharing passion is our number one goal and we’d rather see you on snow than not at all.

These Skis are not available on our website yet but many of their 2016 Counterparts are and can be found by clicking the buttons below.

2016 Nordica OMW Review

Nordica OMW- More than Just a Park Ski

2016 Nordica OMW SkiThe Nordica OMW is interesting enough as a ski classified for Freestyle.  It’s much more adaptable than that and for someone on a budget who may be a weekend warrior or vacation goer, would find that the Nordica OMW is much more capable as and All- Mountain Ski than anything else. People who still particularly enjoy a traditional cambered ski would like the Nordica OMW.  Honestly, a lot of freestyle specified skis shouldn’t be overlooked as an all-mountain option. The Nordica OMW is just another great example of that with its traditional camber and Energy 2 Carbon Sandwich construction which means it’s snappy and quick.  Basically, Nordica took carbon stringers and integrated it into the construction to liven up the ski.  Despite its freestyle classification it also made the ski a great bump/mogul ski and with its 89mm waist width it does pretty well all over the mountain.

ABS sidewall is also added to the Nordica OMW which is hard not to find in a Nordica ski these days.  It basically makes the ski absorb vibrations more efficiently so you feel less in your knees and more power in your skis. Best of all it comes with a 2 year warranty instead of the typical 1 year option which is pretty nice to have. What else? 20m turn radius at 174 which is again the norm for the typical all- mountain ski. Dimensions are 121-98-113 making this ski hold up in most east coast conditions.

Take away should be that if you are looking for an affordable all-mountain option that’s built to take a beating then you should be considering the Nordica OMW as an all- mountain option.

Line Supernatural 92& 100 (2016 Model)

With Discussion about the 2017 Redesign
New to the Line freeride collection last year the Line Supernatural has been spat into an ever evolving design change.  Each year, ski design for the 92mm seems to change.  Last year Line birthed the Supernatural collection in multiple waist widths with the 92 and 100 being the most popular.  These skis shared similar construction as its current successor but one big thing has changed.

Not Your Typical Freeride Ski

2016 Line Supernatural 92 Ski
2016 Line Supernatural 92 Ski

The 2016 Supernatural 92 is the ideal ski for an ex-ski racer, the aggressive, hard charging adventurous skier. With dimensions of 127-92-115 the Supernatural has donned the right of the aggressive, packed powder freeride ski that can still manage the average east coast powder day.  Also incorporated into construction is the Line maple macroblock core and 5 cut dimensional shape.  The staple of Line’s popularity is the Maple macroblock core due to its responsiveness in a wide variety of conditions.
Last year Line incorporated Vibram absorbing sidewall into its design for the 92. And it worked, that’s something I can honestly say I noticed in the ski was its smoothness and vibration absorption.  Now I don’t have the inside scoop but, the vibram sidewall was removed in this year’s ski. That’s the big thing that’s changed. Is it better? Is it worse? Possibly, but it comes down to what you like to ski and where you ski.
With the Supernatural another big difference is the metal incorporated into the design.  Unlike other ski companies who just put a sheet of titanal into the ski, Line went ahead and added it only in key places. They call it the Metal Matrix and kind of like Atomic’s Titanium Backbone, the metal is supposed to be an absorber but still allow the ski to flex in a more “natural” style.
My personal thoughts on the Supernatural 92 is this.  Me not being a racer (but having more than one person ask me if I’ve ever raced), and being a girl means this.  I’m an aggressive skier who kicks a lot of ass on the mountain.  I like to go fast, huck off cliffs and ski for 8+ hours without stopping.  I personally felt with the Supernatural 92 that I had to be on it all the time.  I had to ski forward to get the skis to stay stable.  Any standing up and not being on it meant squirrelly skis.  But then again, I’m not a racer, I never was and never plan to start skiing gates any time soon.  If I weighed 50 pounds more maybe mounted the skis +1 and had a different boot I’d get a kick out of these bad boys.
Not to say these weren’t fun, I had a blast but, I also like to goof off on my skis and I drag poles drag ass and ski switch.  If you’re an ex-racer, ex- moguls skier you’d probably love the 92. If you want the vibram sidewall, we still have some leftover from last year that can be purchased here with free shipping! If you’re in the market for a wider waisted ski or are curious what’s in store for next year, well keep reading!

I Like Phat Skis And I Cannot Lie, Wait What?

2016 Line Supernatural 100 Ski
2016 Line Supernatural 100 Ski

Behold in all her glory the Line Supernatural 100! Isn’t she pretty? The 100 waist width class of skis seems to be the norm for inbounds skiers these days.  The happy medium or the one ski quiver.  And it is in a way.  The Line Supernatural 100 comes 132-100-121 and unlike the 92 still has its vibram sidewall. It also sports the more typical rocker profile (excuse me, “Early Rise Profile”, sorry Line?) with 5-4-3.  Basically those numbers represent how far your ski is off the snow and at what point it makes contact, but that’s a whole different blog post that’s a bit more technical. We won’t dive into that really, the jist is that 5-4-3 rocker profile is what most skis in the 100mm waist width class sport.  Right now the 2016 Supernatural 100 is available in 172, 179 and 186.  Next year it will only be offered in 179,186,192 with no design changes.
Construction is the same through all three years (’15,’16,’17), so if you’re not opposed to a red veneer top sheet you could save a few dollars and just buy last year’s model here:
Pick Me! Pick Me!
Same construction as the 92 in regards to 5 cut dimensional and metal matrix, that doesn’t change.
I really liked the way the 100 skied, it suited my goofy aggressive skiing style.  I felt like airing off that little hit and then carving a big GS turn was easy, not quite as much of a struggle as I felt the 92 was.  A good all- mountain freeride quiver but would make a good touring ski as well.

Moving Into The Future

The big changes for next year is the 92 design.  Redesigned….again with more taper and a more similar rocker profile of the Armada Declivity.  So next year’s Line Supernatural 92mm is still 92mm underfoot but is now 131-92-118.  Not a huge difference from the current model but enough to notice.  Line says this construction make the ski easier to turn.  Rocker profile is now 4-4-1 versus this year’s 3-5-2.  Again look at the Declivity and you’ll start to see serious similarities.
Both skis come out of the factory with a 2 degree edge and both seem to be trending towards a more directional design.  Also new for next year is the Supernatural 86, another 80mm class ski (which honestly we need more of) for the inbounds bump skier who carves like a madman.  Obviously different graphic moving forward but no changes design wise for the 100mm.

Has my witty, comical review on the Supernatural’s caught your eye?

Then buy a ski! P.S Your Welcome…

Snow Report for October 18, 2015 (Opening Day) Killington Snow Report

If You Ain’t First, You’re Last

Killington Opening Day
October 18, 2015 Starts of ski season in the USA at Killington resort. (C) Killington Resort
Opening Day
Hiking up for early turns yesterday, Kelly and Tucker didn’t waste any time. (C) Tadkl via instagram

Today sparked the start of ski season for the United States of America, with Killington Resort starting up the guns and blasting off into infinity- behold the cumulative Killington Snow Report brought to you by Basin Sports.  Killington made a break for it after hearing of Sunday River, their biggest rival’s planned opening day of Monday October 19, 2015.  Killington, being known for its slogan, “winter starts when we say so.” Couldn’t let Sunday River beat them out.  So the guns began blowing yesterday morning and the ski trails of Rime and Reason were set to open at noon.  This morning a giddy chaos ensued when Killington bumped their opening time to 9:30AM.  Some couldn’t wait though and Basin Sports friends and customers, Kelly and Tucker Lange took to the slopes last night and got in the first turns of the season.  If you see them, you are to address them as the King and Queen of the Mountain, since they’re royalty after all.

We’ll add more photo’s as we get more reports on conditions.  Reason will open at 11 after park features are set in place. Expect early season conditions.  It’s in the low 20’s with light wind right now, make sure those edges are sharp and bring the beer!

Opening_Day Powder

Huge Thanks to Kelly and Tucker for sharing their photo’s from today! You guys rock!

P.S It snowed 3″ overnight and is snowing at the store now! (10:00AM)
