One of the favorites from the All-Mountain Wide category last year made its debut in the Deep Snow category at the test this year. Testers still loved it, but called it an all-mountain ski with powder capabilities—not necessarily a bad thing for most female skiers. Ladies loved its happy-go-lucky attitude, responsiveness in tight places, and willingness to show up in crud. More accessible to intermediates than most in this category, this ski would make for a great introductory ski to playing in pow. 

STRENGTHS: Quickness, Forgiveness

WEAKNESSES: Stability at Speed, Versatility
