Past Pinnacles seemed one tweak away from greatness. Whatever K2 did this year did the trick. The whippy swing-weight is there, thanks to K2’s perimeter weighting (dense stuff over the edges, lightness down the middle). Now there’s a reassuring cohesiveness to the whole thing. Don’t expect miracles on ice. Just find the soft stuff and enjoy its easy, playful spirit. “Light fun, flickable and smeary,” Schiller said. “A weekend party skier’s dream.”

Strengths: Playfulness, Flotation, Forgiveness
