It’s a lot of ski. But if your own frame is as big as the Prorider’s or you just like a ski with power to spare, hang on for a thrilling ride. There isn’t a single compromise for forgiveness in this ski. It’s the widest in the category, with commensurate flotation attributes, but it’s otherwise built like a race ski, with a sidecut that likes to go down the hill. Only at irresponsible speeds does it really seem happy. That was fine with Woods. “Floats well in powder, but can rip GS turns on the groomed,” he said.
