Dimensions: 142/115/126
Ability level: 8/10
The basics: Surfing, slashing, and charging into the 2019-2020 ski season, the new Anima features only a graphics update. These wide, stable skis have always been an excellent weapon for big mountain skiers and powder-hunters. Despite its 115mm waist and generous tip and tail rocker, though, the Anima can't be pigeonholed as just a deep snow animal. It excels in untracked powder, of course, but also ... learn more

Dimensions: 139/112/129
Ability level: 8/10
The basics: When big mountains get big snow, the Rustler 11 is one of the skis of choice for Powder7 staffers.

Dimensions: 140/116/130

Abundant tip and tail rocker means maximum powder surf and gives the Super 7 ... learn more

Armada Tracer 118 CHX s
Dimensions: 142/118/135
Ability level: 8/10
The basics: The market for light-ish powder skis seems to get more and more competitive each year. When they planned the 2019-2020 line of Tracers, Armada knew this. So they made the big ole Tracer 118 CHX 8 percent lighter while also increasing the size of the fiberglass reinforcement. Taken as a whole, that means easier skinning, floatier floating, and better durability. Titanal reinforcement ... learn more
