Head Monster iM 78 SW (2008)
Damp, quiet, slinky, and deft: You’ll find these qualities in the Monster 78. Its ability to knock off any turn shape and bash crud made it reliable for a wide variety of testers.
The 78 skis longer than its length but turns short enough to skip through tight trees.
If you’re more into powder, try the Monster 82; it’s a bit floatier and more stable.
"Makes you want to ski top to bottom all day no matter what the conditions." —Alex Shaffer
