Some Cruiser skis excel at flotation, others, like the Cool Heat, offer race ready carveability. With a 76mm waist, it won't founder in powder, but high speeds are its specialty. Cap construction gives it a measure of forgiveness, but it's metal reinforced, so edge grip and stability abound. If you're still skidding turns, look for something milder. But the Cool Heat's confidence is a thrill at speed.
