Armada Trace 108 Review

Armada Trace 108

A typical Niseko overnight snowfall left us with calf deep snow in trees off Hana 1. I think the 106 - 108 mm width underfoot is a real sweet spot for these very common Niseko conditions and the Armada 108 fitted the bill perfectly for the day’s conditions. These skis were super fun and playful, nimble in the trees and tonnes of float.

I thought the Armada Trace 108 was similar in feel to the very popular Rossignol Soul 7 - but the Trace felt just a bit sportier and more stable at speed.

Easy to turn for those who aren’t aggressive skiers, but will also respond to the extra pressure applied by heavier or faster skiers.

Very forgiving and flexible in the big powder pillows that Strawberry fields area is famous for.

The Black Crows Atris Birdie might be the nearest thing to a one ski quiver for Niseko.
