Getting on the lift
- Mar 20, 2017
that is somewhat what it has been for years with water ski mag and wakeboarding and now wake surfboat reviews. those who pay and advertise get there write ups.With Powder Magazine's "pay to play" model for thier ski test, I am sure manufacturers are pissed that tehy paid thousand for reviews only not to get them published, at lease they are not up as of this point.
Fair comment there. We need to get behind the remaining magazines if we want them to survive. Time for me to subscribe to Ski Magazine
Sorry, but you need to support the good publications. Please read their ski reviews, specifically the "Frontside Skis" before you decide to give them money.
The sad thing is, we used to see a huge thread about people waiting for Ski Mag buyer's guide in the mailbox in August.It’s far from perfect. But it’s the only mainstream ski magazine left. Skiers Journal, fine as it is, will never fill a similar niche.
Anyway I tried to subscribe but couldn’t - not sure what’s going on there.
I bought Powder at the newstand last year and wasLooks like we lost some posts yesterday. I was a Powder subscriber for years, I also stopped subscribing years ago. When i think about it, it was Powders web forum that lead me to ski web forums, including EpicSki. I have bought Powder and Bike at the newsstand, but the price now is like $10 an issue. It pains me to pay that much for any magazine. So I'm going to subscribe to a few again, the ones worth saving. I'm going to start with Freehub mag. I hope it helps because the last two magazines I subscribed to went all digital anyway, Ski Racing and Velonews and honestly they have so much less value to me when digital.
When 3 of the 13 skis tested were over 90mm underfoot, for a Frontside ski, there is a problem. We have 39 skis for this year that have "Frontside" characteristics... Zero are over 90mm underfoot.I am curious if the issue is the lack of specific test results or the actual rating of the skis. Thanks!
Yeah but you know how that works, product managers submit the skis they want to the categories they want.When 3 of the 13 skis tested were over 90mm underfoot, for a Frontside ski, there is a problem.
