It has been said that you’re not a powder skier if your waist is under 100cm. The K2 Pontoon Alpine Ski pushes the envelope when it comes to powder ski innovation. K2’s powder rocker design uses an anti-camber shape, bowing the tip and tail up to provide maximum float over the light stuff. The shovel’s staggering 160mm width gradually cuts down to a 130mm waist providing surprising manoeuvrability. It then tapers to a lifted 120mm tail, creating an innovative, powder-hungry beast. The K2 Pontoon Alpine Ski results in a powder hover craft with just enough manoeuvrability to get you back to the lift without flailing. ¥126,000.
