Tip it over on edge and the Crossfire does the rest. This ski hugs the terrain (thanks in no small part to the Marker Piston binding) and executes damp, stable, round turns with almost zero muscling.

Props

Incredibly predictable. You never feel the ski twitch.

Gripes

Most of our testers wanted more snap out of the turn.

Tester's Take

"Playful, easy, damp, and slinky." —Sam Bass
