Sure, you spend time skinning uphill. But you buy your skis for the descent. These boards feel heavy for climbing, but they charge down like steamrollers, demolishing anything in their path. They earned
top honors for stability at speed, and testers called them fast, smooth, and powerful. Plus: A dream sidecountry ski—great in the backcountry, but built for lapping the resort. Minus: Too planky and dominating for advanced skiers.
