This ski was the stealth bomber of the test: sleek, gutsy and powerful enough to obliterate anything in its path. With the same burly construction as last season’s Attiva AC3, it guns through crud, slop and bumps other skis consider moguls, and never, ever flinches. It’s reliable, has great edge-grip, and though it will obey, it prefers to pilot itself on long, strong turns. Though not recommended for novices, the Tierra was No. 1 in the category for each of its Top Scores. "Perfect arcs," said Wilde. "It’s like being on rails."
