Notice that the testers show a clear preference for the 90-plus waists in this category. Too wide for you? Here’s the highest-scoring of the 80-somethings. The Pinnacle 88 not only bests its big brother but all other skis in the category for sheer agility and ease of use. It’s built the same as the Pinnacle 95, just narrower. Testers loved its easy-to-pivot quickness, which suits it well to a dynamic expert or to an aspiring ripper who needs something manageable. “A loose-feeling vibe to it,” Dyer said. “Gave me confidence from turn one.”

Strengths: Quickness/Maneuverability, Playfulness, Forgiveness
