Every so often a ski exhibits a quality so extraordinary that every tester notes it. Such is the case with the Victory, unanimously praised for being smooth. It plows through chop like a luxury ocean liner, yet a relatively narrow waist keeps it spry. Rebound? More than inexperienced skiers can handle. The X Balance binding distributes power to offset women’s small feet and mass, putting the sweet spot wherever you land. "A powerhouse, looking to charge the mountain," said Lewis.
