More Info:

As a die-hard big mountain skier, I will admit that I initially shied away from the idea of heading high into the hills with a 102-millimetre underfoot, twin-tipped, park-esque pair of planks under my feet. In proper defiance, I opted to not even look at the terrain park and aimed straight for some steep trees to see what this ski could wrangle. And to my pleasant surprise and delight, the Head Oblivion 102’s width and mounting point provided incredible manoeuvrability in tight spots, and gave me the right amount of confidence to nail every transition and thread the needle at an aggressive pace. The turn radius and flex felt extremely smooth, which allowed the ski to simply turn with ease, and when I ventured into some lower-angle and more playful terrain, it really came alive. This ski’s light and poppy feeling had me reminiscing about spring park days as a teen, while my now older and refined taste allowed me to really appreciate the Oblivion’s well-rounded performance. —SEAN ENNIS
