Less racelike and more forgiving than the M 777, the M 999’s ride is easy, buttery, and most at home on soft snow, as its high powder and crud scores suggest. gripes: Lacked responsiveness on hard snow. props: Playful, forgiving, and keen to smear and slide turns. tester’s take: "Smooths out terrain like a spatula spreading frosting on a birthday cake." —Matt Ross
