We don’t know much about the new Stargazer, but we do know one thing: She’s hella fun. Part of Rossi’s revamped Black Ops line, the Stargazer was introduced with little detail concerning her exact construction (playing to that “Black Ops” mystique, perhaps). So, we’ll shoot from the hip: This ski can carve, smear, and forgive your sins in the bumps. Testers praised her quickness and knack for short turns on hardpack above all else, but agreed that she’ll show anyone a good time—whatever the conditions or terrain. 

STRENGTHS: Quickness, Hard-Snow Integrity

WEAKNESSES: Stability at Speed, Crud Performance
