Good for Powder
The three-year-old Pontoon remains the best crud-buster of the lot, which is key. While all reverse-camber skis are fun in powder, once you hit manky snow (like the kind that wants
to tear the ligaments off your knee), you’ll appreciate the difference. The Pontoon’s pintail shape and serious rocker make it especially easy to keep above the sludge. The only downside? All that rocker can get squirrelly on hardpack and gully runs. 160/130/120; k2skis.com
