This girl just wants to have fun. Lightweight, playful and zippy, the BC loves to dive through trees and bounce down bumps. Its fiberglass laminate weave is dense underfoot for good edge-grip, then thinner at tip and tail for reduced swing-weight. Angled sidewalls further lighten it up, helping to make it the most forgiving ski in the bunch. Testers also gave it top scores for bumps and Balance of Skills. "One word describes this ski: Fun!" said Loring.

Heavy or strong skiers can overpower it.
