Movement Skis Trust’ wins 2012 Backcountry Magazine Editor’s Choice Award


Boulder, CO (August 9, 2011) Rising to the top of the ski industry’s largest and most unbiased test, the new Trust from Movement Skis was awarded a 2012 Editor’s Choice Award from Backcountry Magazine this week.

A high-energy all-condition charger, the Trusts feature a rockered tip, a stable and agile 108 mm width underfoot and exceptional expectations for the coming winter sales season.

The award also marks the third time in the last four years that a Movement Skis design has been honored with a Backcountry Editor’s Choice.

“These skis speak for themselves,” said Jonathan Degenhardt, Brand Manager for Movement Skis.   ”The Trust truly handles a wide variety of terrain and its profile is perfect for the North American market.”

Held at Powder Mountain, Utah in March, the Backcountry Magazine test included over 50 independent testers from around the country in a multi-day, multi-condition session. Outstanding tester response, exceptionally high scores, and category-leading overall performance contributed to the selection of the Trust as an Editors’ Choice pick.

As an Editor’s Choice winner, the Trust will join a select handful of other innovative ski products in the September Backcountry Gear Guide, as well as be featured online at

Aggressive and powerful, the Trust (MSRP: $949.95) is capable of extraordinary performance in all conditions. Long early-rise rocker tips help the rider in difficult snow conditions, providing great stability at high velocity. 

With a rock solid 108 mm underfoot, the Trust will be available in three lengths for 2012, including 178 cm (140-108-129), 186 cm (141-108-129) and 194 cm (141-108-129).  

Movement’s superior reputation for distinctive and dynamic skis derives from their proprietary Control Torsion System (CTS) ski construction technology, which blends torsional stiffness with round longitudinal flex to maximize performance and enjoyment in every snow condition. 

Like all Movement Skis, the Trust features pure wood ski core construction, certified sustainable by FSC and PEFC organizations; high molecular weight bases for speed and performance; extra-thick mounting plates and rubber reinforced edges for extreme durability; exclusive high energy laminates and fibers for customized performance; and unique shock absorption technologies for a smooth and perfect ride, every time.
