WJ's ski reviews


Logo Yellow GentianWJ, ski tester

WJ is our big boy. His amount of pure muscle is scary. You would expect a guy of his size to use that power while skiing. The opposite is true. Fine technique combined with total relaxation bring him down the slope. In this picture fits that he has no need to be down first. Its the style and feeling with the snow that does it for him. He is a long time skiër and wont skip one apresski. Very useful for friends when its busy in the bar, you need to go around him.

Ski tester WJHe is a pure piste skiër. We will keep on trying to get him off-piste for some freeriding. Some day we will succeed and he will enjoy it. But that is probably the edge for him as I don't see him hiking up a mountain for fun.

  • - Experienced, relaxed skiër

  • - Refined technique

  • - "Skiing is a relaxed way to go down"

  • - No extremes until the apresski

Reviewer WJ

"I like to ski comfortably on piste, but the ski's stability is important. After 3 decades of skiing I am experienced and my technique is fine. I go faster than average, but I don't push it to the limit. And I like a ski that looks cool."
