Line skis founder Jason Levinthal launched J Skis three years go to sell small-batch skis direct to consumer. The Friend is aptly named: Playfulness, Versatility, and Stability at Speed received high marks, and testers called this fatty “super forgiving, but powerful” and “predictable, with good energy.” Carbon stringers and a maple core provide the guts to “slay pow and carve up the front side.” Put simply: “A powder ski that does it all.”

STRENGTHS: Versatility, Flotation, Stability at Speed
