K2 Apache Coomba – Alpine Skis: Reviews

   Photo: Mark Wiens


A 102-millimeter waist allows the Coomba to float easily in powder. But unlike some big-mountain skis, it's also torsionally stiff enough to dice high-speed, large-radius turns with ease. Credit K2's proprietary construction—namely, a shock-absorbing wood core with interlocking strands of fiberglass in the topsheet. 135/102/121; k2skis.com


Bonus: A percentage of sales from the ski go to support Doug Coombs's Memorial Fund, as well as the American Mountain Guide Association's Chad Vanderham Endowment.


Bummer: Not much snap out of the turn.
