The 15 skiers in our Fantasy Draft were asked to build a quiver, pulling skis from four categories: powder, all-mountain, park, and dream trip. They would also select their preferred boot and binding. Rule #1: Once a product was chosen, it was off the table. This ensured diversity in the lineup. Then we drew names out of a hat to determine who would go first, and we flipped the order between each round. Those selections, dubbed the Skier’s Choice—60 skis, 15 boots, 15 bindings—are presented over the following pages.
