K2 didn’t write Doug Coombs an epitaph; it built one. This powerful, consistent, and nimble ski is light enough to spend the day hiking.

Props

Easy to feather through turns and silky-smooth in soft snow.

Gripes

The progressive sidecut makes the shovel float—until you hit a crust layer and get thrown into the backseat.
