The widest of Kastle's new twin-tip series is one of three Colby James West pro models. The XX 110 West is a pleasant, playful addition to the great-new-ski pantheon, winning a Testers' Choice. A Utah tester called it "quick but stable" as it zipped around the hill making short-radius carves and pivoty smear turns. It logged especially high forgiveness and playfulness scores and won over even our brawniest race-bred testers. The West is "a versatile pow ski anyone will be able to enjoy." And it comes at a price tag that's more attainable than other Kastles'. Gotta love when your champagne taste and beer budget collide.
