With a five-point shape more often found on fat powder-specific skis, the Wailer 99 provides deep-snow surfability in spades, along with incredibly low weight, predictable edge hold on all but the firmest surfaces—and with a huge fun factor. Testers were wowed by the feathery Tour1 carbon construction, which makes the 99 one of the lightest skis available by size. But the 99 isn’t for rock-hard snow—chatter is a factor, as with any carbon ski.
