A case could be made that the whole idea of acquiring a modern ski is to make the business of getting from point A to point B as easy and effortless as possible. The skis our test panel has identified here have taken this mission to heart. These aren’t limp noodles that lose their zest for living as soon as you stomp on the accelerator; all our Finesse Favorites also received more than respectable Power scores. As the skier progresses in ability under their gentle guidance, they have the performance reserve to carry her to the next ability level without breaking stride.
