The all-new Rockette is, like its bigger sister the Geisha, by far the easiest ski in its category, winning in Forgiveness by a large margin. You can ski it from any level, on any terrain, from any angle. It’s like one of those compasses you used in grade school: Set your turn shape and it draws perfect arcs. Able to transform seamlessly from a bubbly, slalomy carver to a meaty GS ski with teeth, it’s accessible to a wide variety of abilities. ■◆ | ◆ | ◆◆
