Scott – Scrapper 115
Really, a 115? Don’t believe it. The all-mountain big mountain ski that’s having an identity crisis. A lighter nose and tail from last season’s model seems to be the clincher: should it be used in the Freeride World Tour? Yup; and it is. Can it be skied around like a 90mm all-mountain ski tracking around the pistes when the snow hides? Oh yes. In general you’ll notice fewer truly wide skis around the shops, mainly because this width seems to do almost everything and doesn’t make moving around on the mountain an utter drag. Piste grip is truly surprising for such a wide ski, and it’s not exactly overweight or stuffed full of metal – there’s pawlonia wood with carbon stiffening, which is pretty standard for this category. Nope, it’s just plain right, and we’d go so far as to claim this is one of Scott’s finest – up there with their previous winners of the Ski of the Year in terms of accessibility, versatility and balance. And at ?425 for a pukka big mountain ride, it’s proper value, too.
