Updated for the 2017 season, the Faction Candide 4.0 hits the pow sweet spot with a 118-millimeter waist and a multi- radius sidecut that caters to switch powder landings and enhanced deep snow turning alike. Titanal mounting plates provide a little stiffness to the 4.0 package, but a lightweight balsa core keeps the ski poppy and easy to manage even after the morning storm offerings. “This is a super playful jib ski that has the ability to carve like a directional charger,” says Alex Buecking, shop manager at East Slope Outdoors in Big Sky.
