Testers had certain expectations for the narrowest ski in this category: at 86mm underfoot, they wanted a fun little carver. And the Gnarwhal 86 didn’t disappoint. Traditional camber underfoot and a strip of Titanal damps the lighter poplar wood core to make for a playful thing—the ski equivalent of a Golden Retriever: ever eager, ever ready to perform for you. So, do as you would with Goldens: let ’em run. 

Strength: Quickness, Playfulness

Weakness: Flotation
