K2 Apache Recon (2008)

K2 Apache Recon (2008)

Damp and stable with a giant sweet spot, the Recon is the most user-friendly ski in the category. Point it and it adapts to any terrain, moving from short to long turns with nary a hiccup.

Props

Accommodates a wide range of skier types. Lets you turn off your brain—which is fun, as long as you’re not BASE jumping.

Gripes

Lacks energy. And the 78-millimeter waist is skinny for a big powder day.
