SCOTT has added the brand new Freetour ski to their Superguide line this year and boy what an excellent addition it is! This powder ski has the versatility and maneuverability that is sometimes hard to find in a bigger ski while still maintaining high speed stability in a variety of snow conditions. It has a paulownia/beech core that is combined with carbon/aramid fibers to give the ski strong torsional properties while still keeping it lightweight. This means it will straight line, carve GS turns, and slash pow like a dream without being heavy and cumbersome on the way up. It also has an award-winning 3Dimension sidecut design that combines a wider tip radius and a tighter tail radius with a long radius underfoot, making for improved edge control and varying turn shapes. The longer sidecut underfoot also adds stability and predictability to the ski. These boards have some serious dampening to them, the side effect of a dual wood core, which also lends itself to incredible stability. This combination of attributes makes these skis an ideal choice for big and steep lines where you can really open it up and fly. When it's time to scrub some speed and get more technical, the sidecut and carbon/aramid fibers make the ski extremely responsive and easy to maneuver. For those looking for a wider pow-slaying ski that will still tackle more technical, tighter terrain with ease, SCOTT has created the Freetour Superguide just for you.

Questions & Reviews
Thanks for reaching out! I think this ski would work well as a 50/50 ski, playful and easy to control.
I'm ~160 lbs, 5'9", and usually ski something in the low 180cm range. I want this as a pure touring ski, and would rather something easy to ski than super-demanding. Go with the 178?
Of the available lengths, a 178cm ski sounds great for you! If you would like to go into more detail, or have any further questions about a new setup, shoot us an email at email@example.com.
