Our hypercritical test crew found few faults in this Testers' Choice winner. The broad, rockered shovel of the Affinity Storm initiated easily on hardpack and surfed over chalky bumps. Testers prized its quickness and its ability to snake through trees and crowded groomers. It responded best to a more centered stance, which allowed it to eat up the fall line with smeary swivels and two-footed carves. "This is a great option for a Rocky Mountain frontside ski or an Eastern one-ski quiver," noted one tester. Look to the Affinity Storm for a moderate-waisted ski with supreme versatility.
