The Viva is extraordinary. With top scores in every criterion, Blizzard sweeps the Cruiser category this year. This ski zings with personality without ever being overbearing. It’s extremely easy to ski, but holds a line so unfailingly that you can’t help but go a little faster, a little deeper, a little steeper. And while it will energetically do your bidding—carve trenches or ease through bumps—on one account it won’t budge: This ski will make you have fun. Period. “You will ski well on these,” said Lewis.
