A former Olympic ski racer wrote this on her test card: “I threw everything I had at this ski and it responded in every way.” But don’t worry, you don’t need World Cup quads to muscle this carver. Most testers called it pliable, eager, decently forgiving, and springy from turn to turn. Plus: Skis boilerplate steeps with total confidence. Minus: Great at short-radius turns, but not as comfortable with long-radius ones.
