Testers know Kästles cost a little more. In the case of this year’s MX 84, it’s money well spent. The return for your investment is classic Kastle performance—smoothness without unnecessary weight, exciting energy without unwieldiness. Best-in-class buoyancy makes it an obvious choice for Western velvet or warm days back East—it’ll never trench too deeply. And the MX’s supple dampness lets it flow through crud with ease. “So smooth. Such a well-rounded ski,” said Gooding.

Strengths: Hard-Snow Integrity, Stability at Speed, Versatility
