“Dressed for success and dialed to impress,” as one tester noted. Despite a wide waist, the Ripstick 102 W performs in all types of snow conditions, not just in pow. And though it’s designed for hard-charging ladies who prefer to arc supersized turns and blast through crud, this ski can be persuaded to switch gears and zip through bumps and zag through trees. It does require steering—there’s no auto-pilot option.
STRENGTHS: Stability at Speed, Quickness
WEAKNESS: Hard Snow
