Head Monster iM 82 SW (2008)
Bring the 82 up to speed and it transitions seamlessly from groomed snow to boot-deep fluff. Credit that versatility to Head’s combination of flex and float.
This Monster refuses to ping around beneath you.
Our Snowbird testers (on soft snow) loved the loose feel, but our Deer Valley team (on frozen corn) felt the windshield-wiper effect.
"It’s no wonder they call it a Monster—this ski won’t shy away from anything." —Amy Molsberry
