The widest entry in this category, the freeride-oriented FR 102 is a refreshing departure from the nimble carvers here. It’s a lightweight ride built for the backcountry, but a carbon insert keeps it strong for resort ripping. Testers loved the way it engaged and released, setting up perfectly for the next arc. It’s a versatile ski for women who explore the whole hill. “One-ski quiver,” Megan Brent said.
