BEST FOR: Western powder skiers.

THE TEST: With its thick (115 millimeters) waist and hybrid rocker tip, the V8 floated testers through open snowfields with maximum stability and buoyancy. The tapered tail releases turns easily for slithering through trees or snapping down throaty couloirs. Camber underfoot holds edges in most conditions, although boilerplate might raise your heart rate. 146/115/126; 7.8 lbs.

THE VERDICT: More like a supercharged V6.


POWER: 3.5
