Technical info:
Even if French Zag Bakan Snow Storm Slayer is the second biggest ski in the test, the total weight is average. This is due to its very light construction. Form and flex imply a strong emphasis on freeriding. The French brand has combined an unusually long radius and quite a long rocker in the front, pronounced camber and a stiff flex in the back ski with a softer flex towards the front.

On snow:
Big, massive and very light. In fact, it feels a little too light considering the size. It is good and stable in carved turns on easy surfaces in open terrain, but the big and soft front ski is unpredictable on hard snow. It feels a little flimsy in shorter turns at low speed. But the float is impeccable, which makes Zag Snow Storm Slayer a good choice for ski touring powder hounds who, when the snow conditions are right, want to get as high up in the mountain as possible.
