Sometimes a ski has such a devoted following, a brand has to resist the urge to change it. Though it’s been tweaked down the years, the Mantra’s up-for-anything all-mountain midfat-charger spirit remains unchanged. Rippers buying their fifth or sixth pair this season can rest assured that it’s as Mantra as ever—strong, damp, supple, and not for sissies—just with a nice new paint job. Gooding: “That stiff tail is there to save you if you ever get back. Still such a great ski.”

Strengths: Hard-Snow Integrity, Stability at Speed, Crud Performance
