If you’re lucky enough to live in a place that sees freshies more often than not, the
Soul 7 HD W belongs in your quiver. With a huge shovel, tapered tail, and centered sidecut that concentrates energy transfer underfoot and frees up the tip and tail to pivot and slide, the Soul 7 HD was designed to play in the pow. Testers awarded it top marks in flotation accordingly. That said, with a short effective edge, this ski isn’t a carving tool.

STRENGTHS: Forgiveness, Quickness

WEAKNESS: Hard Snow
