BEST FOR: Skiing 40 percent off trail and 60 percent on trail.

THE TEST: The Experience 98 was the top carver in the category—chiefly because the ski’s proprietary Auto Turn rocker lived up to its name. Putting this 98-millimeter-waisted ski on edge is effortless. Off trail, though, the ski isn’t as loose as others. We loved it in new snow on top of a firm groomer, but it’s a bit too grippy if you live for bumps and tight trees.

THE VERDICT: Perfect in Colorado (where storms drop eight to 10 inches onto buffed corduroy) as a mid-fat ski or back east as a fat ski. 139/98/128

Overall: 4
Carving: 4.8
Resort Float: 3.2
