A blood-and-guts big-mountain ski with a stiff flex, a big shovel, and a flat tail, the Sandstorm performs best in pow but it skis groomers like a fat race ski.

Props

Wickedly agile and stable going fast, it also held turns and bashed crud.

Gripes

Little guys better recognize: These require some muscle.
