Scott have one of the largest freeride toolboxes available on the market with a choice of skis to suit any off-piste scenario - the Scrapper 115 has been designed as a more versatile version of the existing 124 and it certainly seems to be pushing our buttons.

Remarkably for a ski of this width, they glide over groomed snow without a care in the world and although we are now getting used to wide skis being perfectly capable of dealing with hardpack, on-piste conditions, the Scrapper 115 seems to be a cut above many others in this category.

Ripping down the groomers is certainly a nice way to start the day but getting onto the main course and into the powder they provide you with exactly what you'd expect with a ski of this calibre - powerful, fast and exceptionally responsive, they float like a butterfly and sting like a....well, that's up to you, but expert skiers will get the most of them, they are too hot to handle unless you are 100% on top of them at all times.

They are light enough to get away with a ski touring set up for shorter hikes into the backcountry, although you might prefer Scott's Superguide 105 if you're regularly walking up in search of powder.

The paulownia wood core combines with a special carbon stringer laminate that produces that combination of power and weight loss and there's a twin tip rocker that gives the skis that backcountry freestyle element, although unlike other similar set ups, it doesn't seem to get in the way like some twin tips can.

A big juicy steak of a ski that actually performs more like a fish in a fast flowing stream - sleek, fast, elegant and nimble.
