BEST FOR: Powder and then some.
THE TEST: Last year this ski dominated the powder category. We found it every bit as nimble as the regular S7—which lacks the Super 7’s Titanal reinforcement plates—but with no speed limit. That’s still the case. We’d call it a dedicated powder ski, but it’s so much fun to ski all over the mountain that many western locals are using it as their everyday driver.
THE VERDICT: Intermediates and pros alike love the Super 7 for its surfy feel and predictability on hardpack—though it isn’t a blast on firm snow. “Just point and shoot,” said one tester. “Makes you want to push it.” 146/117/127
