The Watea isn't just rockered. Like the prow of a speedboat, its "powder hull" tip is shaped to part the snows with enhanced efficiency, while its notched "swallow tail" is designed to soften the finish of each deep-snow turn. It's No. 2 in Flotation and among the leaders in Crud. Meanwhile, Fischer lightens/strengthens the 101 by integrating two carbon-fiber I beams into the wood core. Stout sidewalls give it edging integrity, but despite its size it's more of a finesse ski than a battle axe. "Makes high-performance skiing easier, which I believe is the point," said Hogen.
