The returning Punisher continues to impress. Testers called it smooth, stable, and predictable, with enough carving ability to manage the groomed snow between the off-piste sections it loves so much. It smears and weaves through trees and bumps, and adroitly negotiates tight chute entrances without getting hung up. As one tester put it, the Punsher specializes in “sorting out complex terrain.” It’s a great paintbrush for creative, freestyle-oriented all-mountain skiers who like to linger and play at the fringes of the mountain canvas.

Skiing's Notes:
Last year the Punisher received a redesign. This year it returns with a new graphic. It's a familiar name in the Scott ski collection. The latest iteration is an all-mountain twin-tip with generous rocker in both the tip and tail. It ranges in width from 104 to 110 mm in four different lengths - plenty wide for all but the deepest fluff. And designers gave it an exaggerated 3Dimension Sidecut, with a full 500 mm section of straight-line sidecut underfoot. Scott's 3D Sidecut breaks the ski into three sections, with a straight section underfoot and traditional sidecut radii in the tip and tail. This is designed to improve stability at speed and give the ski a playful easy-pivoting feel. The Punisher is a wood-core, metal-free laminate construction.
