A supple ski with a large sweet spot and soft shovel, the Mission excelled in the fresh conditions of our Snowbird test. Drop into a powder field and the tip pops to the surface—making the ski nimble and loose.
Versatile, quiet, and forgiving in soft snow.
That same tip gets hard to control on hardpack.
"For a big ski it really got on edge well. Stable at high speeds." —Jeff Annetts
