Review: First, everyone liked Mr. (Eric) Pollard's artwork. After that, stunning discrepancies of opinion. The Opus had highly vocal detractors; they disliked the soft flex and forward mount. But it's champions ranked it among the best. (Six of 11 put it in their top five). It feels small at first, but skis big. It's nimble, but not at the expense of power. The tapered tip and tail keep things loose in deep snow, making it one of the more forgiving fatties. And there's always something to stand on underfoot. "Soft tip and rocker give it unsinkable float," said Larson. "Great powder ski for any ability." Notes: The Mr. Pollard's Opus is a wood-core, vertical-sidewall laminate construction with early rise in the tip (15 mm of rise over 25 cm), with tapered tip and tail-all contributing to its looseness in powder.

The newly rockered Celebrity 100 is still the mainstay of Line's All-Mountain collection, built for and equal mix of powder and all-mountain conditions. Line added a dose of tip rocker-5 mm over the foremost 20 cm-to give it a smoother, looser feel on the snow. It's a metal-reinforced cap construction on a wood core, so it's built to be durable and powerful, but not overpowerful.

Review: Line might not be a garage brand anymore-its market share is up there with the big boys'-but it stays true to its roots. First, the price: so low we had to check it twice. Second, the offerings: Line specializes in park and pow skis. Accordingly, the 90 shone in the fluff, bouncing through pillow bumps and trees (no. 1 in Quickness and Forgiveness). It's too cool to carve, and chargers should opt for the 100, but the 90 is perfect "for advanced intermediates who want to start exploring," said Gillet. Notes: With its very subtle rocker and moderately fat waist, the new Celebrity 90 is designed to be a good bet for Easterners looking for an everyday ski and Westerners who stay mainly on-trail. There just 1 mm of early rise over the foremost 20 cm of the ski, but that's enough to make it ride smoother and float better in soft snow. It's a glass-reinforced cap construction on a wood core.

The Flite is the affordable Prophet, built on the same chassis as the Prophet 90 but with a regular, metal-free cap construction that makes it more affordable and easier to manage. It's designed for 20 percent powder, 80 percent all-mountain performance, making it a good choice as a "daily driver" for eastern skiers. The tip rocker is slight, just 1 mm at the foremost 5 cm of the ski to keep it loose and smooth on hardpack.

Line is one of the few companies to offer a legit women's powder ski. The Pandora, at 115 mm in the waist and with a large helping of rocker (8 mm over the foremost 25 cm of the ski), will float and smear in the deepest of snow. The tip is tapered contribute to a loose, slashy feel in soft snow, and it's thinner profile keeps it supple and fluid.
