Ever annoyed because you’re trenching too deeply on soft groomers? Here’s your ride. Of all skis in AME Freeride, the AC40 is the one that truly loves speed—an imperturbable midfat that rips like a race ski but is still fun on powder days. It put up the top score in Long Turns and was No. 2 in both Stability at Speed and Hard-Snow Grip. It inspires confidence in clean, skidless arcs—perfect for Deer Valley’s velvet groomers. "Powers through crud with a nice stable platform," said Moffatt.
Mach schnell in soft conditions.
Fans of short, snappy turns.
