Worst 5 Skis in Recent MemoryBy Rocky Thompson on February 9th, 2007
1. Salomon Scream 10 Pilot Xtra Hot
Thereâ€™s no sidecut for 30cm from the tip down since theyâ€™re made for run outs after huge cliff drops. Not really made for skiing, you have to lean over about 30-degrees before theyâ€™ll start to carve a turn.
2. Fischerâ€™s â€œThe Dukeâ€
One size only (207cm) with a skeg on the back. Enough said.
2. Any K2 â€œThe Brainâ€ Ski
The light would come on when it dissipated energy. A sad gimmick that left too many beaters with broken necks from not watching the trail, but all those lights.
3. Any Goode Carbon Ski
So light they need weights at the tip and tail. Stuff a martini shaker in your pocket and itâ€™ll be dialed Bond-style when you hit the base.
4. Volant Spatula
The original â€œchrome banana.â€ Caused many people who couldnâ€™t handle the ride to drift into the lift line and take out the masses. Also one of the only skis to get banned from a handful of resorts.
5. Dynastar Legend Pro
Way to stiff for the width and length. Itâ€™s an ego skiâ€”you may as well drive a Porsche while wearing a beret.
Honorable Mention: Snowblades, Snowlerblades, monoskis. Not really skis so I couldnâ€™t include them, but you get the idea.
