Powderhounds rejoice: the iconic ARV 116 JJ charges into 2019-2020 with only a topsheet update (and that skull and feather situation is badass...). The most recent structural update to these skis made them stronger, and they continue to be some of the best skis in the industry for blending playful powder surf with serious big-mountain backbone. What does that mean? Endless buttering potential meets reliability in no-fall zones. You will survive Silverton steeps and absolutely slay Japanuary. What more could you want out of a ski season?
