The WST is performed as a blind test. All skis are tapped with black foil and equipped with a rental binding - so that no tester knows what brand he is testing. The test is performed on a sealed-off area on the Test Track - the so-called changing station - the bindings are exclusively adjusted from a neutral WorldSkitest service team. Each ski is tested only once. After each trip, -on a closed track specially for WST testers - an evaluation form has to be filled out, the following criteria are rated on a scale between 1 and 10: Long turn, short turn, edge grip, maneuverability and general effort. From all test sheets, an average is calculated which results to the final rating at the end of the test.
Due to the black tapped skis, the selected and eclectic mix of testers with different skills, requirements and the great variety of ski models the WorldSkitest is very meaningful.
