Big Mountain
Of the 55 skis we tested this year (for this issue and our winter Buyer's Guide, on newsstands now), the versatile SideStash was hands down our favorite big-mountain board. It's damp and stable enough for high-speed groomers but light enough for short backcountry tours and hikes. An upward bend in the tip keeps the new SideStash floating in powder or thick crud, but the standard flat tail lets you finish your turns on trails at the resort. "This ski does everything a western powder skier needs it to," said one of our testers. 139/108/127; $950;
