    Take two units of pre season stoke, a couple ounces skis in all shapes and forms and 3.000 people who’d prefer an icy hill to a day on the beach seven days a week.
    You guessed it - the yearly ski test weekend is upon us.
    This years test in Lindvallen treated us with a couple of centimeters of fresh and 72.000 grinning teeth due to the previously mentioned powder snow.
    We asked a bunch of testers which their favorite ski was among some other questions.
