Rossignol Cut Super 10.4

Gear

With its turn-inducing 104-mm tip section that dares you not to improve, this Rossignol is super for Newcomers.

Salomon Axendo Series

Gear

How can one ski be called a whole series? By having multiple personalities and few limitations.

Salomon Axendo 8

Gear

One of the keys to the Axendo 8's popularity is its shapely forebody-it has a 99-mm tip and only 63.5-mm waist.

Salomon Axendo 7

Gear

All the testers agreed-the Salomon Axendo 7, with the same dimensions as the upper-end Axendos, is an incredibly easy ski; it can take a timid but determined intermediate from hesitation to celebration in a few turns.

Olin Radius K

Gear

Last year's Olin Radius was popular for its effortless turning ability, but it lacked...oomph. Add a little 21st-century Special K-Kevlar-and you suddenly have one of the most energetic, exciting skis in the category.

Olin DTSL Super Shape

Gear

Olin claims that the DTSL has the "widest performance range of any Olin ski," and our testers agree.

K2 Merlin V

Gear

We skied the Merlin V in three lengths and found three different personalities. At 198 cm, the ski is a pure-bred race sled with an overdrive gear-the piezoelectric modules literally calm the ski down as it gains speed.

K2 Merlin IV

Gear

If the Merlin V feels a bit too rambunctious for your taste, consider the agile, effortless Merlin IV.

K2 Merlin

Gear

These days, most shaped skis promise to boost your performance in a matter of seconds. But some people aren't so demanding in their leisure time. They just want to relax and have fun.

Hart Contour EXC

Gear

The Contour EXC, which has an ultralight Densolite core, is an EXCellent offshoot of Hart's popular Contour series.
