Our testers jumped at the chance to get on this year’s K2 Pinnacle 95 Ti. After gaining traction of the past couple of years, the Pinnacle series really came into its own. Skiers realized that you don’t have to have the stiffest and strongest ski to enjoy your day on the mountain, what you really need is the proper ski for your ability and the terrain and conditions that you normally ski. Enter the K2 Pinnacle 95: it’s a no-nonsense ski but it is born from playful parenting. The designers at K2 built a ski that can handle any and all conditions. It can carve on groomers, float through powder, and bust through crud. If there’s a better-rounded ski out there, we’d like to see it.
