Testers have always loved the XXL for its power but warned that it’s too strong for most. This year there’s a twist. A touch of rocker in the tip makes it a different ski. The construction is still as stout as it gets, the almost nonexistent sidecut still prefers way-long turns, and the XXL is still generally built for speed in deep snow. But that floaty new tip gives it playfulness and a greater willingness to drift and smear. “Solid, balanced, powerful: great powder ski,” said Woods.
