With a poppy maple wood core and a forward geometry, testers had a ball popping this playful ski off every obstacle they could find at Taos, especially in the famously steep terrain off Kachina Peak. Two strips of Titanal keep the Masterblaster stable at speed and easy to engage on edge, which happily entertained the more traditional testers, too. Don’t be fooled by the Masterblaster's new-school roots, these skis can show every skier a good time.
STRENGTHS: Playfulness, Quickness
