Like its big sister the Speed, only more forgiving. Turn initiation is immediate and, once on edge, the Mint is a rock-steady platform with unparalleled edge accuracy. gripes: Laid-back cruisers beware: The Mint prefers to carve, not skid. props: Torsional stiffness makes for precise transitions between turns. tester’s take: "The Mint is a spunky, clean-turning ski that will encourage any aspiring carver’s progression." —Jen Brown
