BEST FOR: Powder skiers who can arc a turn on hardpack.

THE TEST: Quality matters. And this 107-millimeter-waisted, full-wood-core ski, with its two layers of titanium and vertical sidewalls, is an ultra-premium product—even at that price. Proof: the trenches we left on the mountain at Snowbird. 137/107/125

THE VERDICT: Our ski of choice for places where groomed runs access powder.

OVERALL: 4
