J Skis The Metal has a short radius and long, low rocker that make for a smooth, solid ride. The Metal feels like an old favorite you’ve skied before. “It’s a ski with a heart made of metal and brain made of bubble gum. Most playful charger I’ve ever skied,” says Alex Buecking of East Slope Outdoors. A maple core sandwiched with a layer of metal, combined with a slight but steady early rise in tip and tail, and the Metal is one of the most versatile skis tested at Big Sky. From powder to steep chalk and hard pack, from spread eagles to spraffies—if you can handle it, so can The Metal.
