Another ski which is very easy to use in deep snow, the Punisher has been completely changed, and comes with a wider shape and a new ‘3D’ sidecut which effectively makes it straight from binding to tail. This allows for easier pivoting and slashing out turns. The huge rockered shovel floats up very easily and helps lead the ski into the turn. It feels wider than its waist width - again that big nose makes an impact on how the ski feels. It’s surprisingly capable on the piste. You can carve out big turns, although the soft tail can break away.

Shovel really aids flotation - a great ski for someone wanting to do more off piste
