With the 84 beneath your feet, you’ll never have to worry about what’s over the next knoll: It blasts through thick crud and breakable crust. Vertical sidewalls and carbon-reinforced beams underfoot give it the stability to hold a line through anything. And when the fresh does fall, the 84’s bomber feel translates beautifully to smearing through pow. But it does lack a quick, playful feel that some might demand from this category. “A reliable rocket for faster skiers in bigger turns,” Thys said.
