BEST FOR: Tip-rockered fun minus the flutter.

THE TEST: Once upon a time (three years ago), the only thing a powder ski had to do was float. Then it needed to float and feel surfy in tight trees. The Gunsmoke sets the bar higher still: it floats, it surfs, and it’s as stable and powerful as all but a few big-mountain boards. “Crazy stability and a quiet ride, given all that rocker,” said one tester.

THE VERDICT: Anytime there’s six inches or more of new snow blowin’ into town, reach for the Gunsmoke and don’t stop chuting. 140/114/130
