Newschooler's Review:

One of the softest, jibbiest pow skis on the marked right now, the Friend is all about fun. I've only had a couple of runs on them but for buttering around and playing in soft snow, these are hard to beat. They are also fun for playing around the resort as long as the snow is good. For charging and mixed conditions however, they aren't the greatest option, there's a lot of deflection and unpredictability going on. - Twig

Manufacturer's Description:

The Friend is like no other powder ski in the world! It's magical 114 width is not too fat, not too skinny and flex pattern is not to stiff, not too soft making it more versatile than any other "powder" ski. There are plenty of skis that perform great in the powder, yet very few, that are equally fun to ride when the powder's gone. I designed “The Friend” to be truly the best of both worlds. Float, surf, slash, butter in the deep snow until it gets tracked out, then have equal fun maching top to bottom chop and groomers like it ain’t no thang. This incredibly versatile pow ski makes every day feel like it snowed last night!
