Apache Recon (2008)
K2 was the first to marry deep sidecut to a midfat waist. That legacy endures in the amazing Recon, which retains an ideal blend of soft-snow/hard-snow performance. There’s enough width to float in powder, but two sheets of metal and a wood core give it integrity. "Turn-entries are like silk, and the platform is nice and friendly," said Morgan. "Comfort and consistency are its hallmarks."
Easterner looking for width; Westerner who already has a powder ski.
