We won’t bury the lede—this ski is so freakin’ stable for its backcountry-friendly weight. With a round but very strong flex pattern, we felt we could ski the InThayne much faster in chopped up snow than similarly light pow skis. This should come as no surprise to anyone who’s seen Thayne Rich ride, and although we don’t ski quite as well as he does, the stiff flex was indeed an asset for supporting landings. If quickness and maneuverability is the most important thing for you in a resort pow ski, this should be at the top of your list, but those looking to blow through piles of days-old pow may want something with more weight. If you want to spin, fly and generally ski wicked fast, you probably won’t find a better option.

FREESKIER tester thoughts:

“Has the responsiveness and reaction of a narrower ski with amazing float, surf and glide in powder.”

“Easy skiing 116. Pivots quick, lightweight yet powerful.”
