2016/2017 Scott Scrapper 115 ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its men’s Powder Category.

Scott updated the twin-tipped Scrapper by thinning the waist from 124 mm to 115 mm in order to make a more user-friendly, all-mountain model. Even with a less portly waist, testers still favored its powder performance, which outshined the ski’s carving skill. “It has an even flex—not really energetic—but works in powder, crud or skied-out bumps,” says Cole. The core is made with a blend of carbon laminate, paulownia wood and Titanal binding inserts, assembled in a sandwich sidewall construction. The Scrapper 115 features tip and tail rocker and Scott’s 3Dimension sidecut, which creates a tip and tail radius with a central flat line underfoot, designed for stability and edge hold. “I liked the stability in all conditions, but it’s a little slow to turn,” observes Hill.
