Black Diamond Verdict Ski - $449.40

Keeping the same quiver-of-one dimensions as last season, the 2011/12 Black Diamond Verdict Ski rocks a redesigned core that features an all-new sandwich construction and top and bottom metal-sheet reinforcements. Not only is it still the ultimate go-anywhere, slay-anything plank that can handle everything from steep, icy chutes to epic tours, it also boasts improved stability, dampening, and durability for those days when you'd rather charge through the crud than steer around it. - $449.40
