With new-school roots and a freeride pedigree, the MSP 99 surprised many testers for being just plain fun everywhere it went at Taos. The soft-yet-poppy tail earned this ski the highest score in the category for Forgiveness, a trait that was especially appreciated in a category full of stiff chargers. But the 4FRNT ski still held its own in every other skill department, too. The MSP 99 is best enjoyed with a more upright, new school stance and comes alive in the steeps.

STRENGTHS: Forgiveness, Playfulness

WEAKNESSES: Crud Performance, Quickness
