This ski earned the highest overall score in the category, due to tremendous versatility in powder, crud, and hardpack. Every tester found it an easy-flexing, solid platform that was stable and maneuverable in all conditions and terrain. gripes: Groans when skied slowly or pushed into shorter turns. props: Even the largest testers couldn’t coax a chatter from it at top speeds. tester’s take: "For anyone who wants to float and fly in pow and still lay trenches on the groomers." —Zach Crist
