The 2020/21 season has brought some great early season snow falls and with a bit more time on their hands than usual at this time of year, the YamaSport Niseko team have been out test driving some of the Powder and All Mountain /Powder skis in our premium rental fleet.
Introducing our ski reviewers, David, Nicola and Bryce.
Easy to turn for those who aren’t aggressive skiers, but will also respond to the extra pressure applied by heavier or faster skiers.
These skis were super fun and playful, nimble in the trees and tonnes of float.
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.
The bamboo and carbon core gives this ski a soft supple flex but with plenty of pop when needed.
This twin tip ski has plenty of flexibility in the tip and tail and particularly excels in Niseko’s famous tree runs where natural features abound.
The Backland also comes in 117 mm width underfoot - this is a great choice for a day when the snow is deep!
The Line Sakana is a really fun and versatile ski. This is a great all round ski for riders, who like a really playful ski that can perform in all conditions.
Great float for deep powder but powerful enough to charge the tracked out exits and entrances.
