BEST FOR: Skiing in bottomless pow.
THE TEST: The Squad used to be too powerful for mere mortals, but this year it’s 20 percent lighter. The rocker is far less abrupt than on Rossi’s older powder skis, and thanks to the tapered honeycomb tip and tail, swing weight is reduced by a third. 145/120/126
THE VERDICT: Gets playful in as little as six inches of snow and still has no known speed limit when you’re going full tilt.
