Liberty hit the nail on the head with its new V-Series, bringing us more directional, frontside-oriented skis than the brand has produced in the past. Combining a multi-wood core with vertical metal struts, a wide yet flat shovel, and a narrower waist than most in this category, the new V82w is the ideal candidate to take on early season and between-storms conditions with its ability to grip on hard snow and slide over bumps.

STRENGTHS: Stability at Speed, Forgiveness

WEAKNESS: Crud
