We don’t know what (who?) a Girish is, but we know this model used to go by the name Blower. By any name, it’s still loved by testers, though they warn that it’s best suited to an aggressive expert. It’s not the most nimble ski in the group. It prefers long turns, rewarding speed-loving powderhounds with confidence-inspiring solidity and a traditional (i.e., non-twin-tip) feel. And it’s a competent carver on the soft-pack. “Definitely a powder pig, but will get you back to the lift in style,” said Preston.
