I can't stress just how much fun it was to sink the Faction Dancer 2’s edges in and get the most out of this ski. After skiing on plenty of moustache-shaped profiles over the years, it was a treat to get back on something with a stiff and flatter tail. The Dancer initiated easily, hooked up hard, and surged out of its turns both on and off piste, particularly in mid-angle terrain, where I could open it up and really flex the ski. There is a tiny bit of tail rocker, so if I needed to suddenly change my trajectory for some reason, I was just one stylish slash away from safety. Quick and light, it was a blast to carve on the groomed and bang through bumps, and incredibly stable, both at speed and in variable snow. I usually ski a bit like a rhino, but the aptly named Dancer encouraged a little more finesse than I'm prone to, which was a refreshing change of pace. —John Truden
- Playful, snappy and lives up to its name.
- Responsive and forgiving when needed.
- Carves incredibly well on hard pack.
- Leaves a bit to be desired in really deep powder.
