Black Diamond Justice Ski - $431.40

Weighing in at just eight pounds at its shortest length, the Justice is a touring ski with a girthy waist, a little bit of rocker, and a lightweight build. Black Diamond makes fatter touring skis, but the Justice is the most ideal balance between the flotation you want on deep days and the agile chassis you crave for the skin track. Greenhorns might find this ski a little less forgiving than they need, but experienced sidecountry and beyond-the-ropes skiers could easily turn this into their one-and-only touring selection. - $431.40
