BEST FOR: Mixed terrain.
THE TEST: The new Venturi 95 offers a deeper sidecut than most of the all-mountain skis we tested. That tighter turning radius paired with classic Head construction means the Venturi excavated ditches in corduroy. What surprised us was the ease with which it also skied in soft snow off the trail. 140/95/126
THE VERDICT: A great budget option for fall-line resort skiers.
