Whether you love tight, short-radius turns or GS sweepers, this high-energy ski will satisfy your craving for edge-to-edge action. “Definitely fun to carve ‘easy-style,’” said one tester. Other testers noted that Blizzard’s lively Viva is forgiving and lightweight, springs friskily into action on the corduroy, and digs in tenaciously on the steeps. Ex-racers and freeskiers alike agreed that this ski has plenty to offer experts, but remains an easygoing, friendly ride for upwardly mobile intermediates. **Editors Note: The price for these skis was printed incorrectly in the print edition of Skiing's 2011 Gear Guide. The correct price for these skis, with bindings, is $849.99.**

This carvy, responsive groomed-snow warrior may have saved tester Megan Michelson from bodily harm. Nearly blindsided by a spacey day-tripper, Megan made a lightning-quick adjustment and reported that the ski “reacted on a dime.” With traditional camber, no rocker, and sidecut that begins at the fat tip, the responsive Attraxion 8 hooks instantly into turns and grips securely throughout. Experts found it well matched to their power; intermediates may want to check out the Attraxion 3 or 1.

The pronounced rocker of a powder ski can be a detriment on groomed snow, causing tips to flap and making turn initiation difficult. But like K2’s other groomer and all-mountain skis, the Burnin Luv has a subtle rocker that puts the ski’s forebody into a “pre-flexed” shape, so initiation takes less effort than it would with either pronounced rocker or none at all. The Burnin Luv carves groomers with ease and quickness, and it slays bumps and firm tree lines. It’s an accessible frontside tool for East or West.
