Technical info:
Norwegian Stereo´s first purebred piste ski is geometrically identical to two ski touring models we tested earlier this year. This has been reinforced with a little more aluminum though. Stereo Piste has a lot of rocker for this category, plus a relatively long sidecut radius. A stiff back ski and a soft front ski characterises Piste.

On snow:
A good and predictable slope ski from Stereo. For better and worse, it isn´t as extreme as a couple of its competitors, but it feels predictable, so you are not in for any surprises. It is more responsive than K2, which feels similar below the foot. It is easy to vary the length of the turns with this ski, but it doesn´t feel as flexible as for example Blizzard. All in all a ski that is somewhere halfway between responsive and easy to maneuver.
