Incredibly light and responsive, the Fischer Transalp 105 CTi made me feel like a ninja on skis. Despite being a touring-focused and therefore soft snow-loving ski, I was still blown away by how well it handled fresh pow, even when the snow was so deep that I couldn't see the tips in front of me. The natural turn radius of this ski is a generous 22 metres, but it miraculously felt smaller given how well it threaded between Red Mountain Resort’s tight trees. On lower-tide days, it carved the corduroy exceptionally well, ate up the bumps and tracked-out snow, and never let me down or made me regret my choices in any type of terrain or conditions. The Transalp 105 would be ideal for an advanced to expert skier who spends as much time riding the lifts as they do using skins, and I already can’t wait to do more of the latter this winter. —MIKE FLOOD
