Elan M1111
Sidecut: 161/121/141
While it may have the best graphics on the market, this huge, heavy powder ski should only be let lose on vast Alaskan faces. Turn radius is relegated to large, and turns are best performed fast. $799; elanskis.com

Nordica Hot Rod Jet Fuel
Jet Fuel is not actually required for these super-fast planks. While our testers found the skis a bit "boardy," most agreed that they plowed through crud like it wasn't even there. $1,255.00 (with bindings); nordicausa.com
