As versatile as its namesake cocktail mixer, the Tonic cleaves junk, floats powder, and digs into hard snow. Though quick to turn in tight trees, it rails highspeed super-G turns too. The standard, rocker-free tip barely managed to stay above the fluff, but it did so nonetheless. plus: Stable and confidence-inspiring in powder and crud. minus: Heavy testers found the tails a tad soft and sluggish at the ends of turns.
