I ski all the time. At least once per week during the winter, but usually twice (or more). This past 10 days I skied four (or was it five?) times. Heaven.
Part of the reason I skied so often, however, was because I wanted to evaluate the latest in ski technology. I grew up skiing the unparalleled powder of Utah and can remember back when skiing was almost a chore because the skis, boots, clothes, and sundries (e.g., goggles) were stuck in the Stone Age. My goggles, for example, used to fog up at the beginning of the day and I'd discover where I was at the end of the day. Today, it's hard to find a pair of googles that will fog up. Technology has advanced.
What better place to review the latest and greatest in ski technology than here at CNET, the world's #1 source of technology news? But rather than muddle through the technical details of the newest ski technology, I gathered a group of expert skiers to determine how that technology translates into everyday, real-world experience on the slopes.
