2018 J Ski Gear

J Allplay

2018 Skis

Newschooler's Review: The Allplays are great option if you are looking for one ski and are a playful skier. I was skiing all mountain and jumping cat tracks, finding tranny, laying down hard turns, and generally playing around on the mountain. The first day we had about 8 inches of fresh that got chopped up prett…

J Friend

2018 Skis

Newschooler's Review: One of the softest, jibbiest pow skis on the marked right now, the Friend is all about fun. I've only had a couple of runs on them but for buttering around and playing in soft snow, these are hard to beat. They are also fun for playing around the resort as long as the snow is good. F…

J Metal

2018 Skis

Newschooler's Review: The Metal was fun, and easy to ski. I think It would be a great ski as an (almost) everyday inbounds alpine setup.

J Vacation

2018 Skis

Newschooler's Review: I rode the Ahmet's Brother Vacations last spring in Wisconsin shredding slushy, spring groomers, park laps, and sending it off side hits wherever possible for 5 days. As a pretty big guy I was able to flex the skis with ease which was perfect for buttering and never an issue except for when I …

J Whipit

2018 Skis

Newschooler's Review: These are an awesome park ski. I would say they are more at home on rails than on jumps, but they were definitely fun in the pipe too. The edges are super thick, the base is really tough. The topsheets and sidewalls have been fine, they seem to resist nicks and chips better than your ave…
