SCARPA Freedom Freeride Boots Earn 8 Awards from 5 Top Ski Magazines

The results are in, and the verdict speaks for itself: SCARPA’s new Freedom SL and Freedom series freeride ski boots earned eight awards this season from Powder, Ski, Skiing, Freeskier and Backcountry Magazines.

The unique feature of the Freedom series boots is how well they balance downhill performance with the ability to walk and tour like a backcountry boot. The Freedoms aren’t the first to go after this market. But, several editors said, they’re the best yet in that category of boots.

SCARPA Hurricane wins Skiing Magazine ‘Tester’s Choice’ Award

Nov. 8th 2010

Here at SCARPA, the stoke level is high. Why, you might ask? Well, it’s getting close to ski season…

But, to be more specific, we’re also stoked about accolades this month for the Hurricane from Skiing Magazine’s testers.

In this year’s Skiing Magazine’s Annual Gear Guide, the boot section opens by preaching the gospel of skiing with this nugget of wisdom: “as the interface between you and your skis, boots are your most crucial piece of gear.”


So, winning a 2011 ‘Tester’s Choice’ Award in the boot category has us pretty excited, especially because we weren’t just up against other manufacturers of backcountry boots, but all the alpine boot makers as well.
