BEST FOR: All-around versatility.
THE TEST: We took a couple of GS turns on groomers to get a feel, then dove into knee-deep powder, trees, and screeching super-G turns. If it could talk, the Sacrifice 105 would scream, “More!” It’s not as surfy or as playful as some powder skis, but Head’s claim that the Sacrifice will edge even on bulletproof snow isn’t overblown.
THE VERDICT: Impressively versatile. This could be Head’s new flagship ski. “This thing rips!” said one tester. “Love the loose shovel and the traditional feel underfoot.” 144/105/131
