If you count on K2 to make great soft-snow skis, all is right with your world. Something got into all the K2s this year, testers said. There’s still a light, forgiving quickness in the Pinnacle that makes tight spots feel roomy, but there’s more integrity to its construction, great for higher speeds and in less-than-idea snow. Dyer: “Has a playful side that lets you smear and get loose, but also a nice grounded feeling underfoot.”

Strengths: Flotation, Playfulness, Forgiveness
