Though it was the widest ski in this category, the chubby Scarlet hopped from fluff to frozen granular with little effort. It prefers long, almost-straight arcs, but with a short, 18-meter turn radius it’s unexpectedly quick and lively.

Props

Stiff, stable, and trustworthy at speed.

Gripes

Not enough oomph for the big lines.

Tester's Take

"They read my mind: carvy and smooth on the groomed, mean and aggressive in crud." —Libby Biittner
