If K2 has hit some bare spots in recent years, skis like this will quickly regain the ski world’s trust and respect. The shockingly dynamic Pinnacle 105 easily wins the Most Improved award. K2 strengthened its Konic core (wood and metal over the edge; light stuff down the middle). It’s a still slashy, soft-snow player, just one with a lot more guts and energy. “Never tiring,” said Schiller. “You just keep looking for more to play on, and it just keeps rewarding you.”

Strengths: Flotation, Playfulness, Crud Performance
