2020 SKI Magazine Editors’ Choice – SCOTT Vapor & Symbol 2 Plus D

SKI Magazine editors used, abused, and reviewed a lot of gear this season. Here’s what stood out on a trip to Sun Valley.
By: SKI Magazine Editors Dec 13, 2019

Every season, SKI’s editors take a break from their desks to practice what they preach—skiing. Our annual Editor’s Choice trip is an opportunity for our staff to put boots on the ground and do some in-depth gear testing, as well as preview new and exciting things that are happening at ski resorts around the world. These trips have taken our staff to some pretty far-flung places, including Chile and Japan, but this year we headed somewhere closer to home: Sun Valley, Idaho.

Why Sun Valley? Because it’s got everything, from classic resort slopes ideal for testing carving skis to accessible backcountry that beckons to powder hounds and ski tourers alike. We did our best to sample a little bit of everything Sun Valley and Ketchum have to offer and put a plethora of new gear through the wringer in the process. Here are our editors’ favorite pieces of gear of the season.

SCOTT Vapor Goggle With Amplifier Lens Technology

The best type of ski goggle is the kind you don’t notice wearing: no fog, no glare or visual distortion, and the world only seems less clear when the goggles come off—not while wearing them. The new Scott Vapor is this type of goggle, and it’s comfortable on the face to boot. $120

SCOTT Symbol 2 Plus D Helmet

The Symbol 2 Plus D helmet’s industry-leading RAS Fit System and integrated MIPS means it sits exactly where it needs to be when buckled up, and an intuitive ventilation system makes it easy to cool off—or warm up—without having to remove gloves. $220
