The AC30 is capable in a range of conditions. Soft groomers might be its natural habitat, and a little speed brings out its best, but its most distinguishing characteristic is versatility, thanks to modest helpings of both width and sidecut. Soft or hard snow, long or short arcs, groomers, crud, even powder-the AC30 is up for anything. It responds best in capable hands-and always with enthusiasm. "Your wish is its command," said Lewis. "It's part of your body."
Long arcs at irresponsible speeds
Forgiveness or quickness
