Tester's Review

A tester from Utah called the Watea 98 an " anorexic powder ski" because, though it's skinny by powder-skiing standards, its aggressive rocker and wide shovel floated effortlessly in day-after-storm powder. More suited for off-piste (it felt washy on hardpack), it dissects bumps, crud, and trees with ease. It's a ski for anyone wanting float without obesity.
