Reviewer DellaSausa

"I ski at high speed, so stability is vital. As is powder output for I dart off-piste all the time. Versatility is all important for an all-mountain ski, with an emphasis on powder (backside) for me. But I still like them to be stiff, not flexible."

A good looking true all-mountain ski


The Stöckli Scale Gamma is a good looking true all-mountain ski, skiable in almost any snow condition. It’s a supple and also playful all-mountain ski that gives you comfort and grip. On the Scale Gamma it’s great skiing on piste and next to the piste, especially bumpier sidecountry. In pure off-piste, deep powder, you will drown. On piste, it’s easy to make short and medium carve turns switching on the edges and sliding turns as well. You’ve got full grip through your turn as long as you don't go into extremes with power and speed. It is obviously not as good as a pure piste ski, that is the pay-off for getting versatility.

Rocker tip provides versatility

By making medium and long carving turns at high speed you can reach the limit of the ski and loose grip. The rocker tip is great for versatility though and the Scale Gamma gives you control and good damping in any snow condition. And it doesn't vibrate as much as the 'old' Salomon BBR 9.0 for example. On groomed piste with fresh snow, but also in slush and on bumpy slopes. For me the Stöckli Scale Gamma is a 4 star all-mountain ski, nice but a bit too much middle of the road.

Stöckli about the Scale Gamma

"A true all-rounder! The broad shovel gives the ski the necessary lift in deep snow and thanks to the balanced waist the Scale Gamma only begins to develop its real sporty potential on the piste.", says Stöckli. A true all-rounder…That’s true! A very good all-mountain ski that gives you comfort, grip and fun in all snow conditions.
