At 125 mm underfoot, Hart’s all-new Griffin is a powder-specific shred stick built for true powder addicts. While it’s reasonably capable on groomers and crud, this ski doesn’t truly begin to soar until you’re blasting through the deep stuff. “Stoked on this ski! Ideal for big, wide open pow,” remarked one tester. “It’s got a sturdy tail, is stable under your feet and skis like a pow ski should,” noted another. The Griffin’s stability comes in part from its triaxial fiberglass laminate (with fibers running in three different directions, beefing it up) sandwiching the aluminum and carbon core. Ripping at high speeds? You’ll find the ski to be damp under your feet.
