EXCEPTIONAL!” IS HOW TESTER LESLIE RESNICK STARTS HER REVIEW OF THE HEAD KORE 97 W. Dubbed the “purest Kore yet” by the brand, this year’s iteration of the popular series replaces bulkier materials with a layer of carbon to save grams and increase consistency in performance. But don’t let its featherweight fool you—this ski’s backbone can stand up to the roughest snowpacks. “From knee-deep pow, to ice-covered moguls and fast groomers, this ski was a pleasure to ski,” attests Resnick, a former Crested Butte ski patroller. While its wider sister is designed for a more surfy and playful feel, the Head Kore 97 W focuses on precision and stiffness to provide a reliable ride for ladies who like to lay ‘em over. “The playful tip of this ski is inviting to any conditions” adds veteran FREESKIER tester Michelle Cox.
