Hi I’m Adam and I was just skiing on the K2 Pinnacle 85. Great ski for that beginner to mellow intermediate skier. If you’re really looking for a ski that is going to help you kind of start to eas your way into the ungroomed terrain or softer, broken snow this is a really good option for you. It kind of skids and kind of smears a carve fairly well. Once you put it on edge and start to ramp it up to speed, it’s not the most responsive or the most stable, but it’s not really for that type of skier. If you’re just looking for a really smooth easy ride something to start maybe heading off piste in, this is a good option for you.
