This is a ski that excels in and out of bounds. I'm trying to figure out how I can try a pair out.

The hot ski this year...
While I love to ski, I don't know much about the darn things. Other guys can pick them up in the store, look at the edges, heft them, do that flexy-thing against the floor and at least appear to get something out of it. Not me. So I go with what people say, and people say Black Diamond is making some really sick skis, particularly the BD Verdict, which just won "Gear of the Year" from Outside and was named a "Killer Value" by Skiing Magazine. Not only that, the guys at local Black Diamond retailer Mountain Chalet have been talking up this super-light, all-around ski since last winter.
