    This is a great idea but seems better suited as a TGR filmed reality tv show. Send 12 mags to hole up in a condo for a week. ski offs and shit fights ensue until a victor emerges. Start with regional qualifiers and end the season with a National Championship. Sorry Canada, maybe next year!

    Here's a simpler idea:

    Fund a few mags trips to BBIEuro. Film as a reality tv-show. Buster, someone like Norseman/MoFro/TAFKALS/2Funky, and IRipOnSnow would be a fun comparison group. All ski differently but all would have valuable feedback.

    Plus you get to film it at Vendul's place with his newly TGR-named bar.

    P.S. Most of these skiers would never agree to be on film for this.
    P.P.S. And posting Venduls place to TGR main site would destroy it's magic. (But that may be okay with Vendul!)
    P.P.P.S. Norseman/MoFro/TAFKALS/2Funky all ski differently. But--in my limited viewing share some characteristics.

    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    Not sure I've ever read a good comparison of lighter BC skis.

This would also include your centered-stance young jibbers vs. your tip drivers who grew up on the race team, as well as a 155 pounder vs. someone who weighs 210. And yeah, let's see some footage.
    Agreed. My daily driver is a ski that often gets ridiculed by the hardcore radbro reviews, but it's stupid easy to ski and for my 25-30 days a year, I prefer a ski that doesn't demand high performance driving to do what I want. So a review is only as good as the reviewers and how one compares to them, so focusing on the reviewers and their profiles would be more useful.

    I'm gonna give a serious response here.....and this is as a cis hetero male.....gear reviews by WOMEN. I see LOADS of reviews, reports, etc. by dudes for dudes, but VERY VERY FEW by women who actually rip. The industry is missing out on a big demographic here.....

    More than a particular focus on gear, it would be great to have reviews reflect the experiences of different riders with different body types.

    The review of a huge 6' 215lbs guy provides very little useful information for users of average and slight builds.

    The average height for a US male is 5'10" and the average woman is 5'4". The global averages are 5'8" (male) and 5'2" (female), for example.

    This means that half the population are below these averages, and half are above.

    Yet, most reviews (and gear) skew toward the oversized US male, with even fewer regards for female riders.

    I should like Indy vs brand gear. Same target Rossi vs on3p for example. Cast vs marker.

    The original 2006/7 DPS lotus 120 profile, both flex 2 and 3.
    One of those times someone got something right early.

    I'd love me a pair of 190s.

    Skis (and ski gear in general) are hard to review because choices and styles are so dependent on skill level, style, and use cases. As I don't expect TGR to be pumping out all that many reviews, you're going to be randomly picking one model in a sea of models and it will be outdated the next year or two anyways. Ski boots suffer from all the same problems except additionally fit is paramount, individual, and you probably have to check it in person. You might have more luck with outerwear, or maybe try and focus on reviews of gear from lesser known or Jackson hole/local manufacturers. I like the idea of niche products that deserve a bigger niche like CAST getting a spotlight.
