Reviewer Heyman

"A solid backside all-mountain ski is as strong on-piste as it is off-piste. It is made to perform well everywhere within the resort bounderies. Stiff enough to remain stable at top speed, flexible enough for comfort and floatation in powder snow."

Pleasant cruiser for the whole mountain


The Scott the Ski is a smooth all-mountain ski that performs well in uneven terrain. It floats over bumps and loose snow and turns easily both on piste and in powder snow. Intermediate skiers and advanced skiers that do not ski very fast will like this ski. Faster skiers will be annoyed by the vibrating tip and the overall lack of stability. In powder snow the Ski delivers sufficient floatation due to the tip rocker profile.

Compromise vs excellence

The 3Dimension sidecut of the Ski is a Scott technology. It means that the ski has a different radius in tip and tail, while being straight in the middle. The tip and tail sidecut make the ski easy to turn. The middle provides good edge grip and should also increase stability. But that's not what it feels like. It feels very playful but not stable enough for a top all-mountain ski. Therefore the Scott the Ski is suitable for intermediate skiers that don't go too fast and for advanced skiers that are not too powerful.

Scott about The Ski

"SCOTT’s The Ski has been specifically developed to handle all types of skiing and terrain. The Ski features a unique elliptic sandwich construction offering exceptional torsional stiffness, as well as a true, full-length wood core for unmatched flex. With 3Dimension Sidecut and a Pro-Tip Rocker profile, The Ski provides performance and versatility in all conditions.", says Scott. Yes, the Ski is versatile in all conditions, but it does not provide unmatched performance. Therefore a 3 star rating for intermediate skiers is appropriate.
