At 105 millimeters underfoot, this fatty skis through crud like a tank. It was truly at home, however, in thigh-high Rocky Mountain powder, where it floated tips-up even when the knee was down. 136/105/124, 8.6 lbs; genuineguidegear.com
Bonus: It released out of turns with the agility of a much narrower ski.
Bummer: Ugly graphics.
