Testers were practically universal in labeling the new M Free 118 with one word: “FUN!” Built with a poplar wood and PU core combination, this freeride-oriented pow ski can be driven hard from the cockpit or taken on more playful terrain when skied in a more upright stance. At Taos, the test crew enjoyed this big Dynastar ski the most when they were pivoting in between, around, and popping over soft bumps in trees and dynamic steeps.
