Top All-Mountain Skis 2013: Armada TST

A surfy powder ski that loves to play
Staff Writer

This ski is an homage to the late Travis Steeger, an Armada athlete who was equally at home in the air and chest-deep in powder. It's no shocker, then, that so many reviewers gave it high marks for its surfy off-piste flotation and playful athleticism in glades and bumps. With early rise helping it float and a traditional flat tail for rock-solid stability, this is, according to OnTheSnow, "a beach party ski." We recommend you stick to powder, though, where all but the fastest, hardest-charging skiers will be happy with its performance. A portion of every TST sale goes to Travis Steeger's Memorial Fund.

Best For: Powder, and plenty of it.
Overall: 3.89 | Carving: 3.56 | Float: 4.05
Length (cm): 165,174,183,192
Tip/Waist/Tail (mm): 119/102/123 (@183)
