Best Skis For Harvesting Spring Corn
Winter's not over! We're deep into Miracle March with atmospheric rivers pounding the west and Nor'easters hammering the east. Whoever says it's too late to buy new skis is spreading false negativity. Luckily Rachel Cavenaugh over at Digital Trends is not one of those people. Check out her top picks for skis to buy this spring including our personal favorite touring ski.
Coalition Snow La Nieve
Rooted in Lake Tahoe, Coalition Snow is a group of all-women shapers and ski makers hell-bent on removing the “pink it and shrink it” attitude from the ski industry’s vocabulary. La Nieve is their premium backcountry ski meant to offer lightness for the skin up combined with technical performance to let you send it on the way down.
It built the La Nieve with a blend of a basswood, ash, and maple core that makes it feather-light yet sturdy enough to rip big lines. Featuring ABS sidewalls and sandwich construction, the ski is torsionally stiff with energetic, poppy flex. The finished product provides you a light touring ski and a strong, sturdy ripstick once you arrive at your destination.
