The beauty of the Newschoolers review system is that our community is made up of everyone from weekend warriors to park rats to ski bums logging 100+ days a year. That's the core of freeskiing right there, and that's whose opinion is most valuable. We are ushering in a new era of ski reviewing, and it's going to be focused around the most brilliant minds in skiing today - you guys! This is going to be the most comprehensive and genuine database of product reviews ever seen, and we need your help in creating it.
The reviews you write will appear in your profile under MyReviews, so that other users can get the low down on the stuff you’re riding. You can then add those items to MyGear and show off the rad setup you’ve got. Also, if there’s a product you’ve had your eye on for a while now, you can add it to your Wishlist. This will allow you to see what other people are saying about it and easily buy it online. You can even send the product page to someone who might have the means to purchase it for you.

What is the Gear Editor Program?
The Gear Editor Program is our elite team of product reviewers. Their reviews will be more in-depth and thorough, as well as getting listed above other reviews by regular users. These Editors will have access to a pool of equipment sent to us by brands, and will be responsible for doing a deep dive into the products they receive.
How do I become a Gear Editor?
The Gear Editors will be selected from the top Review Karma scores from the last year. In its initial phase, there will be six members of this program. Their tenure of the program will be Guaranteed for 12 months, at which time their contract ends if they have not maintained their status.
The responsibilities of the Gear Editor is to receive all product sent to them, and test it out under their own real-world conditions. Within one month of receiving all product, the reviewer will write up a detailed and in-depth review of said product. They are liable to write a review for everything they get, and failure to do so can result in termination from the program or legal recourse.
Will there be more than six Gear Editor spots in the future?
Yes, as winter approaches we will introduce a lower tier that will be open to many more applicants, and will fluctuate on a monthly basis. Everything will be based off of your review Karma, and history will count. As well, based off of demand and success of the program, we may add Gear Editor spots as we go.
