They say

The Vista is a completely new concept in the touring sector based on totally new geometry. This ski opens the door to the backcountry, but also perfectly capable back on the groomed piste.

We say

Like other Movement skis we tried in this category the Vista is super light and would be a great set up for tourers who love a light rig under their feet. That lack of weight is matched up to rockered profile which makes it instantly feel at home in deeper, off piste conditions. On harder, more skied out snowpack the Vista’s felt much less confident, with a lack of edge grip and less stability. However, for ease of use in backcountry conditions both going up and down they work well.

Tester Comments

Bella Seel
Light and grippy in off piste conditions. Although unstable and lacking edge grip at speed on piste
