Purrrrrr. That’s the sound of full sheets of Titanal—the sound of damp power. The Kenja, a perennial winner, was redesigned a couple years back to be a little wider and “friendlier,” but still this ski bares plenty of fang (read: one of the least forgiving of the bunch). Smooth and strong, the Kenja balks at nothing, and truly comes alive when ridden hard. It knifes on hardpack for sure, but it also has the girth—and tip and tail rocker—to chomp, chop and inhale pow, too. “Constant contact with the snow—love it,” Kennen said.

Strengths: Stability at Speed, Hard-Snow Integrity
