The Scott Vanisher is targeted at advanced and expert female skiers who want to ride mainly off piste and in powder snow conditions. During our on-snow test in Austria, they performed well, even on groomed slopes.

The reliably friendly Scott range of skis is heavily focused on the freeride and all-mountain skier with the Vanisher targeting the advanced skier who loves the powder, but is also looking for versatility.

They perform well in both long and short radius turns, meaning that whether you're skiing in the forest or in big wide open bowls, they will handle the turns and adapt to the environment.

There's a pretty large rocker but the 3D sidecut still makes for easy turning and the Palomino (wood) core makes them springy and surprisingly capable on piste, although the tails sometimes feel like they're slipping away from you.

'They cut through crud and float through powder,' concluded one of our testers.

For seasonaires who want a versatile ski and mainly head off into the backcountry.
