Line has long enjoyed the respect of ski-town hardcores but, until this year, our female testers didn’t get it. Then they finally tried the Celebrity. With a new metal laminate that gives it surefooted stability and edge-grip, it swept testers off their feet...and into Snowbird’s powdery chutes. Given its integrity on hardpack, the Celebrity is an unusually versatile and responsive powder ski—a fine option for a Westerner’s everyday ski, especially one whose technique is more nimble than powerful. Oh yeah, did we mention it’s the least expensive—by far—in its category? No wonder the locals love it.
