Surface New Life Ski - $449.96

The Surface New Life Ski probably got made fun of when it was young, in its developing stages and fatter than all the other skis, but look at it now: it's pow-floating, crud-busting, potato-mashing, and adored by all. Its symmetrical profile with gently raised tip and tail give it just enough lift to keep you stable both forward and switch; it's light and balanced and equal-opportunity. Not that it won't drop the hammer when you feel like ripping things to shreds. - $449.96
