Groomed snow is its native tongue, but the MX88 is fluent in crud, bumps, and windblown, and with barely an accent. (You’ll hear it if you listen closely.) A power-hungry carver like the Völkl AC50—but less high-strung—it bends into smooth, supportive turns and responds best to heavier skiers. PLUS: Quickly hooks up, carves a round turn, and finishes powerfully. MINUS: Sub-150-pound testers found it stiff and bossy.
