A full wood core and a wide platform give the Jade a steady, mellow vibe-one tester noted it had a "be-happy-anywhere" attitude. One of the more versatile choices in the category, it powers through variable snow so smoothly that even crud feels untracked, and was unsurpassed in Flotation. If you're hoping for a racy feel, however, look elsewhere: It scored last in Rebound. "This is one of the true do-it-all skis of the bunch," said Moscarella.
