Skier's Choice Draft Picks

Leah Fielding

Round 4 – Dream Trip, Portillo, Chile, Pick 1
The idea of après-ski with Chilean red wine overlooking Lake Inca sounds like a good one. And I suppose skiing in the Andes (a la the Super C) would be pretty fun, too. But going on a trip to a faraway place, you never know what conditions will be when you arrive. So it’s a good idea to bring one ski that will handle it all. The Shamans do this as well as any shred stick. These oddly shaped boards—enormous shovel tip and tapered tail—are everything a former racer turned big mountain skier could want. While I prefer to ski off-piste terrain, I still enjoy what it takes to get there, and the Shamans do just that. Their stiff construction and sidecut loves to make fast quick turns (reminiscent of my beloved Fischer slaloms, but four times bigger) yet the large shovel and waist float in powder like a dream.
