There are some interesting developments in the skis - The race skis remain largely unchanged, save for some graphics but there are some different directions taken by the manufacturers.
Salomon have the BBR. A ski which has a lot in common (shape-wise) with old surfboards. It has a wide but soft tip and a narrow, stiff tail. It works ok on the piste, if a little flappy at speed but is a little better when the going is softer off piste.
Head have a deal with the management of the rock group, Motorhead and have 4 skis aimed at all mountain and named after Motorhead albums. I've been skiing the 'Rock and Roll' which has proved to be a great ski both on and off the piste.

Today was my last of three days on the hill for the test and the weather has been amazing for all three with great conditions for testing.
