Two-sentence description: A ski that offers versatility and forgiveness, the Luna is the perfect all-conditions tool with great turn initiation in the soft stuff and edge grip on groomers.
What’s on the horizon for next year’s skis?
You’ll see many of the new skis utilizing SCOTT’s 3Dimension Sidecut technology (tip radius/straight line under-foot/tail radius) as well rocker to different degrees, depending on the model.  Not too mention all new graphics, it’s a good-looking line-up!


What are three of the biggest forces shaping the changes and developments you’ve made?
- Consumer interest in having different levels of rocker in the line.
- Utilizing our different technologies (3Dimension, Venturi shape, Rocker) to create skis that can offer high performance in different terrain types and allow for easier turn initiation without sacrificing stability.
- Building skis that we want to ski.

What will be your best selling ski? Why?

Any new materials or construction technologies?
We are using a new Paulownia wood core for our Fly ‘Air ski.


How much emphasis are you putting on rocker?
We are continuing to put efforts into offering different sizes of rocker throughout the line.
