Bring the 82 up to speed and it transitions seamlessly from groomed snow to boot-deep fluff. Credit that versatility to Head’s combination of flex and float.

Props

This Monster refuses to ping around beneath you.

Gripes

Our Snowbird testers (on soft snow) loved the loose feel, but our Deer Valley team (on frozen corn) felt the windshield-wiper effect.

Tester's Take

"It’s no wonder they call it a Monster—this ski won’t shy away from anything." —Amy Molsberry
