"The Hotshot" is a brand-new freeride ski being released July 30th to replace "The Metal" ski. Listen to J skis owner, easy to understand explanation of the ski, and see more details below...



The Hotshot charges harder and surfs easier than its predecessor, backed by a massive sweet spot that feels intuitive and easy to handle in all terrain and conditions with no speed limit.

Like all J skis, The Hotshot maintains unmatched precision when ripping groomers. Just roll it over and the entire edge including the rockered tips become fully engaged for a solid reliable feel.



We optimized the shape and location of the “Light Metal” Titanal laminate to add more power where you need it, and reduced weight where you don’t. The result is a powerful, smooth, stable ski that will boost your confidence blasting through chop, bumps, and stomping landings like a pro.

  • Adding these to any demo fleets? I gotta ski before I buy.

  • Dang! Just bought a pair of the metals at the end of last season, and the one thing that I was wishing was that they came in a 183 length! Currently have the friends in a 183 as well and it’s perfect. Stoked to see the new sizes, can’t wait to see the new graphics as well the artist collaborations only seem to be getting better. Only taken the metals out twice for some summer skiing but already wanting to upgrade to these bad boys!

  • Bought the first run of Masterblaster a few years ago and planned to upgrade to Metal for Mt Hood. I’m cool with the Hot Shot. When can we see graphics?

  • If this is an improvement on The Metal it’s going to be amazing.

    Would a fairer comparison (running length and weight wise) be between the 177 Hotshot and the 180 Metal (or perhaps 183 HotShot versus 186 Metal)

  • Hot Shot graphics? I was planning to get the Metal for this season on Mt Hood.

  • I live in Big Sky MT now after growing up in Utah and Iove any ski that Jason leventhal had his hands in designing. J inperticular are so versatile throughout the line up. I bought a pair of master blasters two seasons ago, after all the metals had sold out (that was my first pick) and really enjoy them for frontside skiing and up to a foot of snow. I would really like to be loyal to this company and spread the stoke by shredding different skis. I hope you keep me in mind.
    Thank you,
    Pete
