For skiers who want to keep their skis glued to the mountain like white on snow, the directional Vantage 97 Ti aims to please. The ski’s Prolite construction focuses on putting more materials where weight is needed and less where it's not. The result is a stiff all-mountain ride designed to aggressively take on hard snow at blazing high speeds. Not an ideal option for those who skipped leg day or those hungry to catch big air, but great for those who always keep it pinned.
STRENGTHS: Overall Impression, Stability at Speed
WEAKNESSES: Forgiveness, Versatility
