This ski doesn’t pretend to be accessible to lower-level skiers, and that’s why our expert women loved it. Like the Enforcer, it returns revamped with mild rocker, which makes it easier to initiate and a bit more maneuverable. But it hasn’t lost its tenacious edge grip or preference for high speeds and wide-open spaces. It’s a Western ski, no doubt, but Eastern transplants accustomed to tipping skis and trusting edges will feel right at home—and it skis powder much better than the skinny boards they’re used to.

Like the Gotama, the Kiku employs rocker throughout its length, which translates to nimble handling in trees and chutes and nice planing capability for powder and chop. Absolutely unflappable at speed, this women’s big-mountain ski is smooth and stable charging wide-open bowls or straightlining tracked-up powder. Testers all preferred the 170-centimeter model over the less nimble 178, and stronger women who weigh more than 130 pounds liked it most. Another great example of a rockered ski that performs admirably on groomed snow.

Here’s a women’s ski for women who don’t typically buy women’s skis—those powerful skiers who straightline chop and charge wide-open bowls. If you’re a pack-leader type, the 108 provides controlled, fluid skiing in any conditions. Mild tip rocker makes for easy initiation and surfs the ski’s front section calmly over crud and powder. Our testers couldn’t find its speed limit. It’s not for the faint of leg or heart, but if you like to air, stomp, smear, and carve, the MX108 does too.

Here's a sneak peak at a 2010-2011 women's ski from Black Diamond called the Starlet. We had a chance to test this women's early-rise, lightweight powder ski during an early morning backcountry tour in Utah's Little Cottonwood Canyon.

A lightweight carbon-fiber helmet. A glove that can pick up a sewing needle. Swedish sunglasses. Kids' rockered skis. Start saving now: You're going to want some of this new gear for next winter's ski season.

Skiing Magazine had a chance to ski a few of next year’s skis at the SIA On Snow Demo Days at Winter Park. Due to the huge amount of skis available and the little time we had, we limited ourselves to fat skis. We tested a handful of new, redesigned and carryover models between 95mm and 115mm underfoot. Although certain skis did better in certain conditions, there really wasn't a bad ski among them.
