Hidden under the tape that covers test skis was one of the 888’s coolest features, an indestructible aluminum topsheet. Appropriate, since the all-mountain model in the M Pro series, like its cousins, is bombproof top to bottom. It’s the most forgiving in a trio of mountain-crushers that prize strength over finesse or forgiveness. With a tail 20 mm narrower than its tip, it’ll never overfinish a turn. That’s nice in tight spots or for powder-GSing. "A lot of ski, and it likes to be worked," said Sabanosh.
Crushing 24/7. It’s a lot of ski.
