    Paradise Aloha Ski

    Before we announced the ALOHA ski, we sent a pair of our 179cm models over to Ski Canada Magazine so they could put them to the test! Here's what they found:

    REVIEW: 

    Calgary-based Paradise designed the ALOHA as a park ski for its freeride athletes. It's a twintip with a nearly symmetrical shape and flex pattern to enable predictable switch skiing and landings. It's a little stiffer in the tip and tail than most dedicated park skis, which reduces its ability to butter, but increases stability when landing big tricks, said Paradise. And it's built tough, with a full polyurethane sidewall, beefy edges, an extra thick, scratch-resistant topsheet, and carbon stringers to back up the poplar and bamboo woodcore. The upshot is that the ski works great in the park but also rips around the rest of the mountain. The ALOHA "wants to go straight on the groomers," said Jennifer Crabtree. "It's great off-piste in the steeps and bumps and handles well through crud." Technical editor Ryan Stuart also had trouble getting them to carve, but when he let them slide and smear they were a good time. "Poppy and playful every-where," he said. "Once I figured them out, I had a really fun time."
