THE VERDICT

There’s nothing superstitious about this ski—it’s simple, fun, and uncomplicated. It’s a perfect fit for ladies who spend most of their time on groomers but occasional venture into the back bowls.

FULL REVIEW

This is a frontside ski that comes with a pre-installed binding system, so you don’t have to think about what binding to mount on it. It’s the highest end (read: most expensive and highest performing) in K2’s women’s Model Line. While the rest in that line are geared mainly toward skiing groomers, the SuperStitious can handle the occasional off-piste exploration.

Float
At just 84 millimeters underfoot, these skis aren’t made for powder. But in just a couple of inches of soft snow or packed fluff, you’ll be right at home.

Versatility
You’ll be able to ski anywhere on the mountain on the SuperStitious, but they’re most at home on packed snow and more manicured terrain.

Length
The SuperStitious comes in four lengths, suitable for all levels of intermediate to advanced women: 146, 153, 160, 167.
