The M999’s 31-meter turn radius is the second-largest in the test—a big reason it was so stable arcing at high speeds.

Props

Forgiving, soft-flexing, responsive at speed.

Gripes

Felt soft torsionally and lacked edge grip compared with other skis in the category.

Tester's Take

"A rocket that plows through powder and crud with conviction." —Kelly Holland
