Each year we head to the mountains to test out dozens of skis for the upcoming season. This year we spent a week at Powder Mountain, Utah, in search of fresh turns and the best new skis for 2017. The La Sportiva Vapor Float skis are incredibly light and proved ideal for touring and powder skiing. Watch to see what our gear tester, Gavin Cooper, loves about these skis.
