Phenomenal in soft snow, especially mank and crud where it powers through high-speed turns, Scott's Punisher is a great big day ski. It's not for hardpack, and loses performance when you try to slow it down. Great for freeriders and deep days.
A powerful sidewall construction, full wood core and twin tip rocker make Scott’s Punisher a very straightforward All Mountain Powder ski. It excels in deep snow with a smooth mid to long-radius turn, and busts through mank and crud when conditions get heavy. Big arcs, power in the fall-line, and all-around in off-piste conditions are the strength of this ski.
On hardpack and in short swing turns, performance drops off quickly. Keep the Punisher off the groomers, and save its power for the big snow days (which with El Nino should be plentiful this year).
