Scott P3 (2008)
The P3, a unisex park and pipe ski, was the biggest surprise of the test. It is, testers said, an absolute blast. It performs like its young customer—with an energetic, happy and carefree attitude that brings out your inner teen. It’s easy to tip on edge, but never locks you in. Light and lively, it floats through powder and turns in bumps, earning third place in Forgiveness. But don’t expect a how-to guide: It’s for experts looking for a good time. "A really fun, poppy ski if you know how to use it," said Lewis.
